Acupuncture Points for Fatigue: Top 5 Meridians to Target

By Claire Boxer

Fatigue related to overwork, illness, or due to unknown causes can greatly disrupt your life. Acupuncture leverages strategic pressure points to revitalize energy flow and provide lasting fatigue relief by:

  • Activating blood and qi circulation
  • Calming an overstressed sympathetic nervous system
  • Supporting vital organ function related to fatigue issues
  • Clearing blockages stunting muscle performance

Among the most effective acupuncture points for fatigue are those along the Liver, Spleen, Kidney, Stomach, and Heart meridians. Here are 5 premier fatiguing-fighting acu-points to ask your acupuncturist to incorporate:

  • Liver 3 (Taichong) – revitalizes blood, reduces anxiety
  • Spleen 6 (Sanyinjiao) – nourishes qi, fortifies Spleen-Pancreas
  • Kidney 3 (Taixi) – replenishes Kidney essence, nourishes entire body
  • Stomach 36 (Zusanli) – promotes Stomach qi circulation, alleviates fatigue
  • Heart 7 (Shenmen) – calms the spirit, relieves stressors causing fatigue

When targeted together 2-3 times per week, these potent pressure points can help reboot your energy reserves and achieve lasting relief from exhaustion related to illness, stress or overwork. The experts recommend combining acupuncture with lifestyle changes like regular exercise and a healthy diet for optimal, long-term results.
