What Is Acupressure

Acupressure is an ancient science that has come down to us over centuries. It is the science of healing by applying pressure on significant points of your body. The pressure is given by your fingers. This way you stimulate your body's natural self-curative abilities. Acupressure is good for self treatment and relieving pain, stress and so on. Acupressure and Acupuncture are two separate methods though both would deal with pressure application on vital pressure points on your body.

Acupressure is based on proper pressure application. The way to apply proper pressure is:
  • Use finger pressure directly on the Acupressure points.
  • Have the pressure on for three minutes.
  • The pressure is to be gradual, steady and penetrating.
  • The pressure that you apply should be firm. It should not hurt badly. It should hurt good.
  • Do not continue to press if there is too much pain.
  • Since your middle finger would be the longest and strongest use this for Acupressure.
  • Avoid Acupressure on a full stomach. After meals please wait for an hour before doing Acupressure.
Acupressure should be done practically daily. You could be doing Acupressure to maintain health or to relieve yourself of pain, both ways you are to practice it on daily basis is good. After your pain goes it is advisable to continue the same pressure points for a couple of weeks to avoid recurrence.
