Acupressure Points Around Your Eyes


Using your fingertips to massage the acupressure points around your eyes is an easy way to relieve tension and pain that come with our daily screen practice.


Energy in our body flows along meridian or channels otherwise known as acupressure or pressure points in specific area on our body.

Rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, these pressure points can be used to promote overall wellness.


Different from acupuncture, acupressure, doesn’t use needles. Instead, using a massage technique and treat a variety of health conditions.


There are four popular eye acupressure points for eye-related issues.


1. Si Zhu Kong Point

Found at the outside tip of the brow, away from the eye, the Zan Shu point may help relieve headache and migraine pain.  This is a common complaint with eye strain.


2. Zan Zhu Point

The Zan Shu point runs along the inner-eye area, next to the nose.

Applying pressure on the Zan Zhu point is best when trying to relieve red, itchy or painful eyes.  This acupressure point may also help relieve allergies, headaches, excessive tear production and more.


3. Yang Bai Point

Located at the left side of the centre of the forehead, just above the left eye, the Yang Bai Point may provide relief from headaches, eye twitching and glaucoma.


4. Cheng Qi Point

Directly under the eye and in the centre, applying pressure to the Cheng Qi Point can relieve symptoms of conjunctivitis, swelling, pain, twitching and eye redness.



Massaging these four acupressure points may help reduce inflammation and pain.



How to massage pressure points around your eyes


When massaging the area around your eyes, it’s important to know where the acupressure points are and take care to apply enough pressure, but not cause pain.

Using a circular massage motion is the most relaxing way to ease your way into the practice of massaging around your eyes.  Use your fingers or the Brightening LED Eye Massager for best results.

Start your eye massage from the inside and move toward the outside of your eye in a circular motion.  Apply pressure to the acupressure points and hold for 10 to 15 seconds then release for the same amount of time. Repeating this process up to 10 times until you’ve relieved the pain.

Remember, a massage should be a relaxing positive experience.  Focus on slowly and deeply breathing and don’t apply pressure that is too heavy.

10 Reasons You Need an Eye Massage


The benefits of massaging the area around your eyes are great.   You can use your fingers to gently massage, use the Brightening LED Eye Massager or relax while the Luxurious 4D Eye Massager  does all the hard work.

 Sore Tired Eyes

Here are 10 ways reasons to activate and relax your eye acupressure points.


1. Relieve Headaches & Eye Strain

Over time, eye strain, whether caused by excessive brightness or lack thereof, can cause some serious headaches. However, with technological advancements in hand, there is no excuse!

Despite sitting at a desk most of the day and spending most of our time looking at a bright screen, we can still spend a few minutes massaging our eyes.

With an eye massager, you can conveniently care for your eyes and let them recuperate from visual fatigue. With heat compression treatment, your nerves and muscles are soothed, so more blood and nutrients can reach your eyes. This reduces pain and tiredness.


2. Relieves Dry and Tired Eyes

A smart eye massager promotes blood circulation to your eyes, stimulating your eyes and gently placing pressure on the right point, giving your eyes a complete rest. The result is red, itchy, dry, and tired eyes caused by staring at digital screens for too long.  During the day, gentle eye massage keeps your eyes fresh and hydrated, as it stimulates their production of high-quality tears.


3. Relieves Sore Eye Muscles

Your eyeball has six muscles connected to it so that it can gaze around efficiently and effectively? Additionally, you also have two eyelid muscles that are constantly blinking to keep dirt, moisture, and glare from harming your eyes.  As you blink, your eyes become moist, and tears contain powerful antibodies that protect your eyes from infection.


After all this, it makes sense to take a few minutes during the day to ease any muscle discomfort around the eyes. An eye massager uses soft air pressure to target and soothe the most sensitive areas of the eyes, allowing them to feel more relaxed than before.  


4. Support Eye Health

You can support your eye health with an eye massager. They may help improve blood circulation around your eyes.  

Additionally, acupressure may improve blood flow and relax muscles in the eye area in disorder such as glaucoma.


Smart eye massagers could be extremely useful if you do not know where the acupressure points are and the proper technique for an effective eye massage. With the ideal pressure and warmth, they stimulate the acupressure points around your eyes.


5. Reduces Puffy Eyes and Dark Circles

Aging, heredity, diet, and allergies are all factors that contribute to dark circles and puffy eyes. Lack of sleep or general fatigue might be other causes.


Fortunately, airbag compression technology in the Luxurious 4D Eye Massager  may successfully reduce the dark shade beneath your eyes, and with enough therapy, those pesky circles may be totally gone.



6. Boosts Skin Elasticity

Although ageing is unavoidable, you have the ability to look and feel younger. Aside from ageing, our relentless lifestyle of movie marathons, late-night parties, and passion projects may cause wrinkles to emerge even before they are due. No matter what age you are, developing a healthy eye care regimen improves not only your eye health but also your attractiveness and general look.


The Luxurious 4D Eye Massager  may help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and boost skin elasticity, giving you a more youthful appearance. Over time, tighter skin around the eyes will make you appear younger rather than older.


7. May improve Glaucoma

Acupressure may also aid in the treatment of more complex eye health issues such as glaucoma and floaters by boosting blood flow and relaxing muscles in the affected area.


And research backs up these assertions.


A research published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine looked at 33 glaucoma patients to see if acupressure might be used as a supplement to intraocular pressure therapy.


The study's patients were split into two groups.


Auricular acupressure was administered to one group (the auricular acupressure group). The second group got acupressure on non-vision-related sites with no massage stimulation (the sham group).

For four weeks, the 16 patients in the auricular acupressure group massaged twice a day.


When compared to the sham group, intraocular pressure and visual activity improved considerably after treatment and during the 8-week follow-up in the auricular acupressure group.


8. Tension & Anxiety Relief

The smart eye massager delivers vibration treatment by creating rhythmic and homogeneous vibration. This efficiently activates neurones, relieves muscular tension, and clears the channel, decreasing stress and anxiety.


9. Promotes Self Care

 Relaxing music has a major influence on our mood and our ability to absorb information efficiently, according to scientific study. We can feel peaceful and relaxed by listening to calming music.

The Luxurious 4D Eye Massager  has a speaker that may be connected to your phone via bluetooth. This integration allows you to listen to your favourite tunes while having your eyes and temples gently massaged.  Perfect for some self care.


10. Improve Your Sleep

Before retiring to bed, use the Luxurious 4D Eye Massager . When you turn it on, you'll sense it gently constricting and tightening around your eyes, applying slightly more pressure and warmth with each beat as the sensation runs down your temples towards your eyes. Breathe meditatively while the massager relieves your tension and worries, leaving you feeling calmer and more at peace. After 15 minutes, your eyes will be ready for a pleasant night's sleep.



An eye massager, like the Luxurious 4D Eye Massager  stimulates the acupuncture points around the eyes and accelerates blood circulation, reducing wrinkles and enhancing skin elasticity. It can also help remove eye bags and dark circles caused by inadequate sleep and poor blood circulation if applied for fifteen minutes every day. Eye massagers boost eye cell metabolism, smooth out wrinkles around the eyes, reduce face sleepiness and puffiness, and soothe the skin. This eventually brightens the skin around the eyes, giving it a young shine.


Ensure the antioxidants in your Kadee Botanicals Eye Cream are absorbed into your skin with the use of the Brightening LED Eye Massager or drift off into a cloud of self care while the Luxurious 4D Eye Massager massages your eyes.
