It successfully relieves pain and has a positive effect on back pain, arthritis, chronic tendonitis or tennis elbow. This traditional Chinese method is very effective and can be done at home.
Ageless treatment method
Acupressure is a traditional Chinese healing method that involves putting pressure on specific points on the body. It can be applied in the form of massage or push, resulting in pain relief. Since there is nothing wrong with acupressure, you can do it in the comfort of your own home. Just apply light pressure at the right point for 30 seconds to 1 minute. It takes about another 5 to 10 minutes for the body to respond. If you are a beginner with acupressure, the effects may occur with a slightly longer response. By massaging these points, you should quickly go through the headache without having to take pills.
Massages acting on individual acupressure points support the excretion of undesirable toxic substances that have accumulated in our body over time, either through the excretory tract, sweat or during digestion. The pressure exerted on the acupressure points not only stimulates blood circulation throughout the body, but also the so-called bioenergy.
Acupressure points on the feet
The points on the feet are associated with each organ. For example, a point at the heel is responsible for the bladder, a place in the arch of the foot is connected to the large intestine, a place close to the toes is connected to the trapezius muscle for a change, and so on.
We wear daily shoes with firm soles and thus we do not stimulate individual acupressure points in a natural way, and thus there is insufficient blood circulation. The ideal way to at least partially replace the massage is to walk in the garden without shoes in the summer, or at best on the pebble beach, where the stones acupressure points beautifully blood.
If the acupressure points are not stimulated, there is no blood circulation, there are deposits in the blood vessels, the blood does not flow where it is needed, and thus the interconnected organs also bleed less. The body, which is less well perfused, begins to decline in function, which over time manifests itself in the form of problems of various kinds.
Acupressure yourself at home
Acupressure can be done simply at home, just learn the right procedure and know where the points are. You will save money for visits to expensive salons and you can do it at any time. For the first time, of course, it is better to have a massage performed by someone experienced and learn a little bit. But then you can learn to do acupressure yourself at home, as there are no risks - which, for example, would not be possible with acupuncture.
Acupressure is safe in that even if we do it wrong at home and put pressure on the wrong place, we can't hurt ourselves. Or we just won't help ourselves from the problems we wanted to relieve, that's all.
How can acupressure be learned?
In addition to taking various courses to learn what and where the acupressure points are, there are a number of books. And the ideal aid for beginners are special socks on which the acupressure points are drawn, so you know where to push during the massage. If possible, walk barefoot on different terrain, you naturally massage acupressure points there.
