An ancient art of healing that is carried out by applying pressure using finger, thumb, palm or any other gadgets to specific points called acu-points. This is to stimulate body’s natural self-curative abilities.
According to Traditional Chinese medical theory, special acupressure pointslie along meridiansor channels, in our bodies. These are the same energy meridians and acu-points as those targeted with needles in acupuncture. It is believed that through these invisible channels, flows vital energy -- or a life force called qi (ch'i). There are14 meridians (12 major + 2 extrameridians)which connect specific organs or network of organs, organizing a system of communication throughout our bodies. When one or more of these meridians are blocked or out of balance, it results in congestion or illness, leading to:
- Formation of crystals at the nerve endings - Improper blood circulation to the organ - Improper flow of energy to/from the organ
As a therapeutic method in medical science, acupressure has proven to release muscular tensions, promote blood circulation & body’s life force to aid healing.
