Trigeminal Neuralgia, the Meridian Massage Approach

How to massage acupoints

Make very light contact with these points, especially when there is pain.
Ask the person you are working with to tell you how much pressure feels comfortable to them. It is likely that the amount of pressure that is best will vary from point to point, so keep asking for feedback.

With the soft part of your finger or thumb on the point, think about gently sinking into the point. I find that “sinking into a points” creates more comfortable contact for my client than “pushing pressure” into points. Because there is so much pain and sensitivity with trigeminal neuralgia, making gentle contact is of the utmost importance.
