For this method of healing, you need only your fingers and a little effort. Once you learn its basics, it will help you to have more energy during the day, to prepare your body to renew during the night and to remove the most common health problems.
Whether it is a frequent headaches, slower digestion or backache, this practical method can help us in maintaining optimal health.
Simply put, such as on the physical level blood flowing through the blood system, on the energy level we are composed of a multitude of channels (nadis/meridians) which flows the energy that gives us life (prana, chi, qi) and such as for example in the case of cholesterol, it results in formation of a blockage in the blood stream (because cholesterol sticks to the walls of the circulatory system and thus precipitates), also on the energy level, the modern lifestyle (such as reduced movement, improper nutrition, stress) leads to blockages that impede the normal flow of energy through the meridians. On this principle is based most of Eastern healing techniques. Along the meridians there are certain points, where the blockade of certain organs can be removed by pressing these points.
I was thrilled by acupressure because of its simplicity and effectiveness. When you begin with applying this method, be without fear because acupressure is primarily simple and secure while you perform on yourself or on others, even if you are a complete beginner. There are no side effects, and the only equipment you need is your fingers.
By pressing certain points on the palms and feet, as well as on the rest of the body, the blockages of energy flow, can be removed in the organs or systems on which the item works.
As when we want to have the light by touching the particular electric switch, current begins to move to the preferred bulb and it lights up, the same is with a pressure to specific points on the body by which we can activate nerves that carry signals to the target organs. When the energy blockages are removed in certain meridian, then it improves circulation and thus a comprehensive work of the organs in which we operate.
Points of most often problems…
With the thumbs press area behind the temples, about one inch behind the hairline. Slowly circling twenty minutes with deep breathing. Pressing these points we can help prevent and stop most types of headaches. Headache will be resolved and by pressing acupressure points for brain, pineal and pituitary, which are located on the peaks of feet and hand thumbs, one below the other. Press with your fingernail rather than the pad of the thumb. Treating these points, you will improve concentration and memory also.
Pain and tension in neck
If you imagine that the thumb represents the head, it will be easier for you to remember that joint at the root of the thumb is connected with your neck. To prevent or eliminate tension in neck, regular press area around the joint on the hands and feet.
At the outside of the hand between the bones of thumb and index finger, there is an area that offers us insight into the balance of the body work. For example, inflammation represents imbalances. By pressing the recess between the bones from the place where they touch all the way to the top, we can act on the lower back, middle back and shoulder belt.
Interference in digestion
Between the bones of the thumb and index finger on the inside of the palm, there is an area associated with stomach. It is easy to determine the same area on foot. Since the stomach is located in the middle of the hull, point to it is located in the middle of the foot. With regular treatment of these points, you will resolve all stomach problems, such as excessive secretion of gastric acid and slow digestion. But in order that effect would be maximal, remember that you should not press that area immediately after meals.
Tension and sciatica
How often you feel tense? Can you imagine that there is a magical point on the body by which pressure, the tension could be disappeared? Good news for you, this item actually exists! It is located at the root of the middle toe. It’s often ignored also by those who have tended to massage the entire feet. This point is too important because it not only clears mental tension, nor by its activation we can also improve the work of the sciatic nerve.
