5 Facts You Never Knew About Acupressure


When thinking about the practice of traditional Chinese medicine, what commonly comes to mind is acupuncture. This practice involves inserting needles into pre-determined pressure points in the body and face to relieve tension and pain. Acupressure is a counterpart in this practice that requires these muscles to be targeted by the practitioner’s hands rather than by needles. The aim of targeting specific muscles to relieve pain remains the same. Although the two techniques work best in tandem, the option of acupressure may come as a relief to those who feel anxious around needles. If you are considering receiving acupressure for pain relief and overall health, below are 5 facts about this natural medicine path that may interest you:

 

It Originates in China.

The practice of acupressure originated in China. Evidence has been found that it was practiced all the way back in the Stone Age.

 

It can be Done Anywhere.

Acupressure is a convenient form of alternative medicine because it requires no special equipment, just bodily knowledge. Because of this, acupressure can be done anywhere. Wherever you get acupressure, it should always be preformed slowly and gently. If not done correctly in this way, damage can be caused.

 

It is a Great Way To Relieve Nausea.

Acupressure is used to relieve nausea without the use of unnecessary Western medicines. It is used commonly on people, especially children, during post-operation of a surgery and in cancer patients receiving chemotherapy.

 

You Can Do It Yourself.

As long as you learn the technique properly and are taught by a professional acupressure practitioner, you can treat yourself to relieve your pain and ailments. By preforming acupressure on yourself and seeing a professional, you can increase circulation, reduce tension and pain, strengthen the immune system, promote wellness, and enable relaxation.

 

Acupressure Can Treat Many Things.

Acupressure is commonly used to treat the following conditions:

  • Anxiety and stress
  • Tension headaches
  • Migraine headaches
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Wrist, hand, arm pain
  • Back, hip, knee, ankle, and foot pain
  • Colds, flu, sore throat, sinus infection, loss of voice

  • Fainting
  • Memory and concentration
  • Heart palpitations and High Blood Pressure
  • Constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, stomachache
  • PMS, painful periods, hot flashes, pregnancy discomfort, morning sickness

The practice of acupressure is an old and alternative medicine practice. Although it is not often seen used in the Western world, it still remains an extremely beneficial practice of medicine as it uses the body itself to heal its own ailments. If you struggle with any of the listed conditions, consider the benefits of naturopathic healing through acupressure.
