Where is this point?
On the face, lateral to the corner of the mouth, directly below the pupil of the eye.
How to work this point?
The most convenient way is to use the plump part of the middle finger tip.
Instead of using your physical strength to press in the point and tense your shoulders, put your elbows on a table and rest your face on your fingers positioned on the points. Thus, the weight of your head does the job.
Breathe slowly and deeply for 1 to 2 minutes.
