Acupressure was developed as a therapy over 2,000 years ago. It is an essential component of Chinese medicine. Acupressure involves placing precise finger placements and applying pressure to specific points on the body. These points are located along specific channels known as meridians. These are the same channels that acupuncturists use.
The activation of these points with pressure (or needles) improves blood flow, releases tension, and enhances or unblocks life-energy, according to Chinese medical philosophy. This vital energy is referred to as “qi” in China and “chi” in the West. This released energy circulates through the meridians, promoting relaxation, healing, and the restoration of proper function.
Acupressure therapy relieves pain, decreases muscle and fascial tension, improves circulation, and induces deep states of relaxation. Acupressure treatments are typically provided by massage therapists and other body workers, but you can learn to do it yourself.
Individuals who have been trained in self-application of acupressure frequently use it to treat nausea and vomiting, motion sickness, headaches, and neck and back pain. It can also help with chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, mental and emotional stress, addiction recovery, and learning disabilities.
