Post-COVID Recovery Tips

Some common symptoms of COVID are loss of taste and smell, overwhelming fatigue , and brain fog. In this blog, you will learn some of the signs that linger after having the virus and acquire some quick tips to boost your immune system with acupressure. 

Dahnjon Tapping for Recovering Energy 

People have told us that the fatigue after COVID-19 is pretty debilitating. So we suggest this body tapping technique as it helps regain your energy. To do this:

  1. Take your fingers and put your top hand in your navel
  2. Where your bottom finger hits is the point that you’re going to be tapping on repeatedly
  3. Make a loose fist with both your hands
  4. Start to tap repeatedly on that same point below the navel.

Pointing for Better Digestion and Regaining Sense of Taste and Smell

Another lingering symptom of COVID-19 is loss of appetite along with the loss of taste and smell. To address these issues, we suggest a couple of techniques that stimulate an essential point on the acupuncture meridian that runs up your body’s center called the wrench channel. This method will help increase your digestive function. 

Ren 12 

This is a significant point for the function of the stomach and the digestive system overall.

To access this point:

  1. Make little horns with your fingers and the bottom finger. The pinky goes into the belly button, and where the top finger lands is Ren 12 
  2. Take three fingers and push in on your Ren 12 with the other hand 
  3. You can also use a tool, such as a point finder (Available at Sedona Mago) 
  4. Use the rounded edge of the point finder and use that to press on the point, the same way you would with your finger
  5.  Repeat this daily, or even a couple of times a day, if you’ve really lost your appetite.

Note: This technique might be mildly uncomfortable because the point is right over the stomach, which is a little bit sensitive. So, you don’t want to go too hard on that area. 

Stomach 36 

Stomach 36 is a super important and powerful acupuncture point that you can find below your knee. It does not only help with digestion and immune function, but it also makes multiple systems stronger in the body.

To access this point: 

  1. Press that area (three-finger width below your knee) until you find a spot that feels pretty tender
  2. Once you’ve located it, stimulate this point by tapping on it with a loose fist
  3. You can do one knee at a time, or you could do both sides simultaneously 

Large Intestine 20 and Bitong 

Another condition that’s really frustrating to people is losing the sense of taste and smell. Many people reported holding a bottle of something that smells strong, like essential oil, right under their nose and not being able to smell a thing.

Here are a couple of points that you can work on with your fingers or a point finder: 

  1. Use one finger on each hand and press on the sides of your nose
  2. Apply a little bit of pressure and a little bit of rotation
  3. Do this several times a day. 

Large Intestine 4 

The large intestine 4 is known as the master point for the head and neck, so you could stimulate it if you have a headache or stiff neck. It also helps with the loss of sense of taste and smell.

To access this point:

  1. Lift any of your hand 
  2. When you put your thumb and first finger together, a mound will form between them. Large intestine 4 is right at the top of that mound
  3. Press on this point either with your finger or with the point finder
  4.  Once you locate the point, it might almost feel like you’re hitting a nerve a little bit
  5. Rotate and press on it for about a minute and then release
  6. Press on it for another minute and release and repeat on both hands. 

Head Tapping for Restoring Memory

Du 20

Another frustrating symptom of COVID-19 is brain fog or memory loss. There’s a point right at the top of your head called Du 20. Accessing this acupressure point can help with bringing energy back into the head and dissipating the brain fog.

To access this point:

  1. Locate the point using your fingers
  2. Fold your ear 
  3. Find the apex or the highest point of the ear, then trace a line straight up into the center of the head
  4. If you’re using a point finder, these points will probably be a little sensitive


Do these techniques every day, and always finish up your routine with 20 minutes of Dahnjon tapping. Ensure that your shoulders are relaxed. Then, breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. At the end of your tapping session, always rub your belly up on the right, across, and down on the left.

We hope that these methods can help you to get through post-COVID syndrome. If you want to learn more about how to boost your immunity, check out the following lecture:
