Which acupressure points may help you get a better night’s sleep?
Many acupressure points exist on the human body, but three top ones seem to affect sleep. Modern Reflexology explains that the point commonly known as LV3, or the Great Rushing, is considered to be the “one-stop healing point for all problems,” including insomnia.
