Acupressure Hand Technique

I am adding combs to my birth bag! This is a great way for moms to get the benefits of accupressure during contractions!

These points lie along the creases of the hands where the fingers join the palm. These are said to help release endorphins (the body's natural painkillers) into the body.

Women can hold a small comb in the palm of their hand so that the teeth of the comb are touching these points. They can then grip the comb during contractions, applying pressure to the level that feels the most useful.
