Acupressure is a centuries old practice that can improve your immune system and circulation through the massage and stimulation of pressure points. In regards to hair loss, acupressure’s positive effect on blood circulation can increase blood flow to your scalp which can subsequently revitalize the area, control baldness, and promote new hair growth.
If you’re struggling with hair loss and looking for remedies you can use at home, try these four commonly used acupressure points.
***If you do not wish to use your fingers to perform the acupressure, you can also use an acupressure stick.***
