|Acupressure is an ancient
healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of
the skin to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. When these
points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation
of blood and the body's life force to aid healing.
Acupuncture and acupressure use the same points, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses the gentle but firm pressure of hands (and even feet).
Acupressure is one of the most effective methods for self-treatment of tension-related ailments by using the power and sensitivity of the human hand.
Acupressure can be effective in helping relieve headaches, eyestrain, sinus problems, neck pain, backaches, arthritis, muscle aches, and tension due to stress. It can also be used to relieve ulcer pain, menstrual cramps, lower back aches, constipation, and indigestion.
There are also great advantages to using acupressure as a way to balance the body and maintain good health. The healing touch of acupressure reduces tension, increases circulation, and enables the body to relax deeply. By relieving stress, acupressure strengthens resistance to disease and promotes wellness.
