Fainting, also known as syncope, is a temporary loss of conciousness or ability to focus on needed tasks. Fainting can result from a loss of blood supply to the brain, can be a sign of a serious underlying problem, and should be discussed with a qualified health care practitioner, especially if frequent, recurring or persistent. In addition to these acupressure points, you may want to try points for the head, breathing
, or lightheadedness
If you have not found relief, try the same points on the opposite side of the body, or go back and try a related or similar symptom or body area. If you have not used acupressure before, please see the Instructions, then click the "Body Area" or "A-Z" tab and repeat.
