KD 2
KD 2 is half way up the inside of the foot, in a notch along the bottom/inside edge of the bone. The notch may be hard to feel with your finger so if you find a tender spot instead press the spot. Use KD 2 on both hands to treat generalized pain at the back of the head.

Press hard enough to feel an achy sensation.  If you do not feel an achy sensation press around the area and try to locate the most sensitive point. Pointing at SI-3 on right hand Because the thumb is stronger than the index finger we recommend using the thumb to press on the point.  Women with long finger nails may prefer to use the eraser end of a pencil or the rounded end of a marker pen. pointing at KD-2 on the left foot
Press on each of these points until you feel a deep achy sensation. Then take 3 or 4 deep, SLOW, breaths while continuing to press.  Then go to the point on opposite foot or hand and repeat the same process. Work back and forth, up and down until you have pressed each point.  Inhale & exhale!   Pressing on SI-3 on the left hand

Pressing on SI-3 on right hand
Wrapping your fingers around the hand or foot allows you to gradually press harder and harder with the thumb until your feel a deep achy sensation.  Start by pressing SI 3 on your right hand, then go to KD 2 your left foot, then right foot, left hand, and end with repeating where you started on your right hand. Don't forget to breath at least 3 times with each point.

Is this supposed to work?

No relief?   Try these suggestions: 

1. Check to be certain that you started by selecting the image that best matches the location of pain on your body.  If you can find an image that is a better match try pressing those points.  If your pain moves to a new location after you press the first set of points go back to the previous page, select the image that best matches the new pain location, and try using the new points.

2. Check the general area around the point location by gently pressing to find the most sensitive spot.  Pressing on the most sensitive spot in the area will usually give you the best results.
3. Follow the proper techniques for pressing the points. Press hard enough to feel a connection and then breathe in and out slowly three times while pressing for at least 15 to 30 seconds.  If you do not get any results you should try pressing hard enough that it is quite intense but, please don’t injure yourself.  Breathe into the pain and slowly move the area of the body that you are trying to treat. Take a two minute break and try again.

4. Try points in the same area but, on the opposite hand, foot, leg, or arm.

5. Select another pain location image that is located close to the pain location on your body. Try using these related point selections to see if you get better results
6. Contact an acupuncturist and make an appointment.  An individualized diagnosis may be necessary to resolve your condition.
