As the Medics say, Accupressure is a form of Physiotherapy which uses the method of message and stimulation of precise points of the body in order to heal all kind of pains and to provide relief from tension, exhaustion and other ailments. Accupressure has come out as a major healer for even the patients of chronic diseases like kidney and heart patient. In these cases however, Accupressure therapy is given in the guidance of the Doctor treating the patient for the Chronic Disease.

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.

Method of Accupressure :

As per the Accupressure Therapists, the body energy circulates through 14 meridians at the surface (on the skin) and 8 channels under the surface (under the skin). The energy circulation begins with the lung channel and passes through twelve meridians which are related to major body parts. The pain arises when this energy channel is not properly circulated. The Accupressure therapy works on channelizing this energy, thus treating the patient and reliving him of all the pains.

The method of accupressure is comparatively easy. The point is to release the blocked energy from the body, so that the pain is eased out. If you want to treat a particular point then pressurize that point using your thumb or any of the pencils provided by the Accupressurists. Now give an equal time to the same point on the other side of the body. The rule of accupressure is that if a point is tender, it will benefit from being pressed. Once the point is pressed, the blocked point will release energy from it. The point has to be pressurized for about 20 minutes, with inclusions of 5 minutes each. While you keep on pressurizing the point, keep in mind that the next point has to has to be less pressurized than the first one. You can use fingertips, knuckles, or thumbs to press the ailed point.

One of the best ways to pressurize the point is gripping the hand or feet or any other painful body part with one hand and then pressurizing the paining point. This way you will have a better grip of the point you are pressurizing.

In Accupressure there are particular points for every kind of ailment they treat. This Chart can be had from the Accupressure Centers. But the best way is first to learn the art of Accupressure, then try it on oneself. Easy as it is, it can be learn in a duration of a month. However for Chronic Diseases, its better to get the Therapy done from the Therapists only.
