Activate your pressure points and watch your stress melt away
Acupressure has been successful in making its presence felt and is opted by many people. Reason: No side-effects!
What is acupressure? Acupressure is an ancient and traditional Chinese practice of using pressure to stimulate specific points of the body to ease the pain and remove the blocks and energy that stifles the energy of one's body.
Studies have shown that it works as an alternative solution to many problems, which has become a problem and a challenge for the professional medical sector.
Acupressure is also different from acupuncture, as it does not use needles. These are the body's six main pressure points
Eyes: Myopia, hypermetropia, presbyopia, cataract, glaucoma, and night blindness are some of the problems that tend to affect your vision. These conditions are sometimes caused by diabetes, sleeplessness, lack of Vitamin A, watching TV from a short distance, overuse of mobile or computer. Acupressure provides solutions to these problems.
Solution: Specific points in hands and legs can cure these problems. Acupressure centres provide treatment for 15 days, and you can ease the pain and suffering without any side-effect. Pressing the tips of the index finger and middle finger of one’s hands and toes are good for eye-related problems because the nerves of the hands and legs are connected to the neck. Putting pressure on the tip of the fingers and toe results in smooth blood flow. It also relaxes the eyes and provides relief to eye-related ailments.
Ears: Deafness, vertigo, and tinnitus are common ear problems.
Solution: Massage the tip of your ring and little finger. Even pressing the toes provides respite from pain. Another effective technique is pressing the back of your earlobes.
Nose: Cold, sinusitis, allergy, and rhinitis are common nose-related ailments.
Solution: Press the tips of all the fingers and toes with much pressure. Pressing the part near the nostrils is also effective.
Mouth: The throat is affected by tonsillitis, which is caused by bacterial infection. It appears with the symptoms of fever and weakness. Goitre is also one of the conditions related to the throat.
Solution: A slow massage around the toe and thumb is a good way to get over this.
Back, neck and shoulders: The spinal cord is made of bones, joints, and ligaments supported by veins and blood vessels. This is designed like the letter ‘S’, and keeps the brain, blood vessels in control. Even a small jerk in the spinal cord is painful and affects different parts of the body.
Solution: Massaging the various points along the tip of thumb to wrist is the best way to ease the pain. You can use the thumb or a rubber stick to press the hand. The problem is solved, if you continue this practice for two times a day for 10 to 15 minutes for three months.
Heart: Acupressure is said to provide a solution for heart-related ailments.
Solution: The points are in the left hand and leg. Press the tips of your left hand and leg (fingers and toes) from the thumb and get rid of heart-related problems.
Please note: Acupressure is effective in providing a remedy to diabetes, obesity, joint pains, acidity, and digestion, but one should get treatment from trained professionals.
