Acupressure uses gentle to firm finger pressure in the pressure points and meridians much like acupuncture does with the use of needles. As these acupressure points are stimulated, muscular tension releases, circulation of blood is promoted, and the body’s life force energy is enhanced to aid in healing.
Benefits of Acupressure:
- Releases tension
- Increases circulation
- Reduces pain
- Provides emotional therapeutic results
When used properly, acupressure promotes the circulation of blood. When you apply pressure to certain points it helps in activating and opening up the flow of blood in the blood vessels present below the skin. This increase in blood flow helps almost all organs in the body regenerate and perform optimally. Acupressure therapy can be used to relieve pain, fortify the sexual reproductive system, improve appearance, relieve tension in the back, and help heal emotional pain for greater health and beauty.
Acupressure Therapy is highly effective for relieving muscular tension in all areas of the back. Important points are located along either side of the spine and on the upper back. Many people especially appreciate the release of tightness associated with lower back pain and sciatica. By relaxing and toning the back muscles, Acupressure makes the spinal adjustments easier and more effective, and the chiropractic results last longer. In fact, Acupressure and chiropractic treatments were originally practiced together in ancient China.
Acupressure has been considered for centuries as one of the best remedies for common ailments like a headache, sinusitis and cold. The practice is especially useful for reducing pain and relieving headaches – drastically reducing the dependence on over-the-counter medicines.
