Acupressure is a type of Chinese medicine, a form of reflexotherapy based on stimulating the pressure points located on the meridians of the body. It has been used for over 5,000 years.
Eastern medicine explores the ways that Qi energy flows in the body – the life force with which all living things are filled. These ways are profound in the human body. When energy passes freely along the meridians, a person is healthy. Stagnation of (or excess) energy leads to illness.
Meridians connect internal organs and systems. There are 14 meridians on your body. Each has its name and harmonizing, stimulating and calming points. Stimulating points energize the organs and systems, calming points relieve the nervous state and soothe, and harmonizing points bring balance.
Traditional Chinese medicine affects certain areas on the body's surface to influence the state of the meridians, to remove obstacles from the path of Qi energy. These areas are located along the paths of energy flow and are also called biologically active. It is possible to apply pressure, moxibustion, magnetotherapy, acupuncture, and acupressure.
Acupressure points (biologically active points, BAP) are located throughout the body. Many of them are on the feet, palms, and ears. They are also found on the legs, arms, chest, back and head. There are 350 of them in total. By increasing the energy flow through them, we return natural balance to the body.
Modern researchers explain the effectiveness of this ancient science with increased blood flow and stimulation of nerve receptors in the affected area. This leads to the release of joy hormones and powerful natural analgesics, which in turn relieve pain.
You can also use acupressure to analogize other organs and tissues and shorten the duration of illness. It eliminates the disorder of the functional activity of organs and the nervous system, eliminates anxiety, concerns, and fears that are a consequence of neurosis.
It can help with chronic headaches and migraines, motion sickness, muscle cramps, neck and back pain, osteoarthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune diseases such as fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis, stress, addiction recovery, and stress relating to learning disabilities.
