Acupressure therapy for beginners, including pressure points chart

Acupressure is an ancient form of healing that makes use of the fingers to gently stimulate key points which are linked to your body's natural self-curative abilities. It dates back over 5,000 years and originated in Asia.

Acupressure has been found to effectively relieve stress-related issues, and is perfect for preventive health care and self-treatment, as it can naturally boost your immune system. Acupressure can reduce pain, release tension, improve circulation, and even promote overall good health and spirituality.

How Acupressure Works

Acupressure points are sensitive areas on the skin that have a high level of electrical conductivity, thus allowing them to channel healing energy in a very effective manner. The Chinese refer to this energy as Chi or Qi, while the Japanese call it Ki. Yogic practices, on the other hand, refer to this energy as prana.

No matter what you call it, the universal healing energy remains identical everywhere you go and is something that links us to the rest of the universe. This energy can still be channeled anywhere without using the appropriate pressure point but is a feat which is very challenging to properly control, which is why acupressure points are so convenient.
