Where is this point?
At the top of the neck, in the large hole below the skull.
How to work this point?
The most convenient way is to use the plump part of the middle finger tip. If your wrist is flexible enough, the thumb is a good alternative because its cushion is larger.
Instead of using your physical strength to press in the point, which is not very practical in this position, tilt your head back and make it rest on your finger. Thus, the weight of your head does the job.
Breathe slowly and deeply for 1 to 2 minutes.
