According to the Scientific research, pain or numbness in any part of the
body is the indicative of an ailment in the body. Accupressure works on
reliving the pain and getting the senses back to the numbed part of the
human body. To see the indication, first it is made known to the patient how
pain is felt. In our body, there are certain chemicals known as Endophrins.
The signal of pain goes to the spinal cord, from where it passes to the
motor nerves. This involves the reflex action with no involvement of the
brain. From here the pain signal goes to the thalamus from spinal cord. It
is this point in the brain where pain is felt. This imbalance of energy is
treated by Accupressure.
