Acupressure: A Safe Alternative Therapy
Acupressure is a safe and gentle alternative therapy used to relieve symptoms from many common disorders. Unlike some forms of Western medicine, this therapy does not involve the use of any invasive techniques. A skilled practitioner simply uses their thumbs and fingers (sometimes the elbow) to exert pressure to specific body points.
You can also do it yourself by visiting acupressure sites on YouTube.
Acupressure is closely associated with other forms of Chinese medicine, such as acupuncture and shiatsu. The philosophy of traditional Chinese medicine originated about the year 600 BC when Taoism was developed; beliefs that center on the human connection to nature. It is believed the changes in nature (ie, weather) impact human lives mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Asian practitioners believe disease is caused by internal (emotional), external (weather), or other factors, including trauma or an unhealthy lifestyle. Many changes impact the body on a daily basis and affect the flow of qi (pronounced “chee”), or vital energy. Chinese medical theory sets forth to correct this balance and produce harmony within the body.
