Shortness of breath is a sign of a serious medical problem that must be brought to the attention of a qualified medical professional. Breathing difficulties can also be part of a serious chronic condition, and you may want to try acupressure points for the respiratory system, lungs, chest and breath control, as well as conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, colds, cough, hyperventilation, pleurisy, and pneumonia.

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.
