What is Acupressure?

acupressure

Acupressure (sometimes written as "accupressure") is a technique related to acupuncture, where the energies of the body are regulated by manipulating points on the body. This has effects on the emotions, tension and physical conditions.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.

Acupressure techniques: Pressing and reducing points


1. Pressing Points

To press points, use something blunt. Usually the fingers are used to press, but I find that for many points the fingers may be a bit too thick, so you'd have to press quite long and firmly. Ideal would be something 3 to 4 mm thick, like a (preferably used) pencil eraser that's on the other side of a pencil. Some points can be pressed using a fingernail.





2. Reducing Points

To reduce a point, turn a finger over it in counter-clockwise direction, also for one to two minutes.

When Acupressure should not be used?

  • As the only treatment for illness; if you are sick, see a doctor
  • If you have a heart condition
  • Just before or within 20 minutes after heavy exercise, a large meal, or bathing
  • If the point in question is under a mole, wart, varicose vein, abrasion, bruise, cut, or any other break in the skin
  • If you are pregnant, especially if more than 3 months
