It’s been discovered that fidgety ADHD kids probably don’t need medicine–what they really need is more sleep. From first grade through kindergarten, students have a hard time staying awake in class. College and high school kids slug high caffeine coffee and soft drinks. But researchers have discovered that acupressure works even better.
University researchers were appalled by the number of students falling asleep in class, so they taught their students to self-administer traditional acupressure techniques to stimulation points on their legs, feet, hands and heads, which instantly returned them to a more alert state. Acupressure works like acupuncture, except you use pressure instead of needles.The five stimulatory points are the same and the regimen consists of light tapping with the fingers and massaging specific spots on the body with thumbs or forefingers. This could be especially important for medical students and other people who have to work the night shift.
