Acupuncture/acupressure To Reset Body Clock

There are a series of 12 acupuncture points that correspond to 2 hour chunks of the day. I have used these with patients to help them quickly readjust to local time and to prepare for the new time zone.

To readjust to local time you simply use the current horary point.

To prepare for a long flight, you want to treat the horary point in the time zone of your arrival and also use acupressure during your flight to help the process along. I have a patient who travels to china once or twice a year and swears by this protocol. If you are planning a future trip, you may want to ask your acupuncturist about this.
