Acupressure to lose weight? Here’s how it works
Since acupressure only requires your body points and hands, it is an effective and simple way to “lay hands” on yourself to stop the cravings, aid digestion or support the feeling of satiety.
Of course it does: Only press on the body points as hard as is comfortable and endurable for you. With regular use, you can change the duration and pressure of the acupressure on your own.

Desire point: outer edge of the ear, about a finger’s breadth above the earlobe; massage the desire point firmly with thumb and index finger for one minute
