Tips: Easing Eye Strain
« on: Nov 04, 2006, 06:43 pm »
For those long tech rehearsals and for helping counter the effects of sitting for hours under blue lights or in dim booths, try this basic shiatsu procedure.  First, use your thumbs to find the two pressure points on either side of your nose just below eyebrow level.  You will know the pressure point when you find it because it will smart a little when you press it.  Now use your forefingers and find the two pressure points on directly below the first points but lower down, just below eyeball level.  The third set of points can be found on the bone of your eye socket directly below your pupils.  The fourth set is spread across your eyebrows with a focal point at the temples.  Spend a count of eight massaging each of these pressure points, close your eyes for 15 seconds or so, and your eyes will feel much better.  Stimulates tear ducts and restores circulation as if you'd gotten at least four extra hours of sleep.
