Although acupressure is mostly used by adults, it is a great tool for parents to help their toddlers and older children. And the benefits of those pressure points are that they do not vanish with time, they grow with your child! You can use them as long as your kid lets you, and later on s/he can learn them as well…
Acupressure points to reduce fever:
To help reduce your baby’s fever, try the pressure points located at the base of their thumb nails.
Gently grasp her thumbs without pinching them, for about 10 seconds every 2 to 3 hours. This should help to bring down the fever faster.
The other three acupressure points below are also effective. Position your finger’s cushion on the points one by one, repeat 3 or 4 times a day:
LI4 (Large Intestine 4)
LI11 (Large Intestine 11)
GV14 (Governor Vessel 14)
