Acupressure is the ancient art of healing which utilizes the knowledge of these pressure points to restore our body to health.
Our bodies, there are hundreds of pressure points which, when stimulated, can impact our health in a significant way. Acupressure is the ancient art of healing which utilizes the knowledge of these pressure points to restore our body to health. Every single part of our body, all organs, joints, etc, is linked to certain pressure points, and when a skilled practitioner applies pressure to those specific points, quick and efficient healing is accomplished.
Acupressure is a therapy developed over 5,000 years ago as an important aspect of Asian medicine. Activation of these points with pressure can improve blood flow and enhance or unblock life-energy, allowing those energies to flow more freely, promoting relaxation, healing and the restoration of proper bodily functions. When these acupressure points are stimulated, they release muscular tension, promote anti-inflammatory effects and circulation of blood, and enhance the body’s life force energy to aid healing.
Traumatic experiences and emotional stress causes the body to contract its muscles and harden. Acupressure can relax the tightness in these muscles. Sometimes, events in life can cause us anxiety, worry, grief, depression, etc. This state of mind, when recurring again and again, has a very noticeable effect on our physical health as well. It can cause hormonal imbalances, ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, stomachaches, migraines, etc, including all of the harmful effects that are caused by stress. Acupressure can balance the body’s channels of energy and help ease these ailments.
