An acupressure practitioner can send someone to sleep quickly by applying pressure on one or several of his pressure points. For example, applying pressure on the middle of the inner side of the wrist, between the eyebrows or on the center of the breastbone can help induce quick sleep.
Lack of sleep can also be relieved by working on the indentation below the outer anklebone or the point directly below the inner side of the anklebone. Applying pressure on the upper back between the shoulders eases anxiety and other emotions that can hinder sleep. Acupressure originated from traditional Chinese medicine.
