Acupressure provides an effective alternative to the family physician to treat several types of pain
In addition to pain relief for specific typical pain areas, acupressure also relieves tension and enables deep relaxation
Sufferers of nausea caused by anesthetics, chemotherapy, and pregnancy as well as acute and chronic pain have found acupressure to effectively provide relief
Stress brought on by addictions can also be relieved through acupressure
SAN DIEGO – When considering treatment options for acute and even chronic back and neck pain, headaches, or both, a trip to the family physician is usually the most obvious option. This type of treatment often results in expensive office visits paired with x-rays and perhaps a muscle relaxer or pain reliever to ease your suffering. Southern California and San Diego residents have found this relief to be a temporary solution to recurring aches and pains.
Have You Considered Acupressure Therapy?
Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses gentle, firm pressure on specific points on the body to stimulate natural energy flow and healing. It is frequently used for chronic neck and back pain, headaches, digestive imbalance, muscle aches and tension, anxiety, and other ailments. Acupressure therapy promotes wellness within the body by enabling deep relaxation and reduction of stress.
If you are in the San Diego and Southern California area and looking into more holistic treatments that are gentle and effective, you should know that acupressure has been found to be effective in addressing the following conditions:
Pain Relief Found From Acupressure Therapy
Nausea - Wrist acupressure can be used to prevent and treat nausea after surgery, during spinal anesthesia, motion sickness, and pregnancy-related nausea and vomiting.
Cancer - Acupressure can help treat nausea that may occur in conjunction with some forms of chemotherapy. It has also been found to reduce stress, increase energy levels, help alleviate pain, and reduce other symptoms that may accompany cancer treatment.
Acute and Chronic Pain - Back pain, post-operative pain, headaches, and neck pain have been shown to benefit from acupressure treatments. By releasing tight spots along crucial acupressure points near the spine, acupressure can be very effective for relieving muscular tension in the entire back. Some studies have shown that arthritis pain can be treated with acupressure therapy by releasing endorphins and helping promote anti-inflammatory effects.
Emotional Health - Beside its ability to improve physical pain, acupressure may also be effective for healing emotional pain and trauma. By relieving the physical stress brought on by emotional damage, acupressure can help bring balance back to the body. Acupressure can release tension and allow vital, natural energy to decrease stress and restore feelings of well-being. Fatigue and mood can be improved by regular acupressure treatments that may also help to reduce depression and anxiety in individuals.
Addiction - Compulsive behaviors are added physical and emotional stressors within the body. Addictions add tension, pressure, and physical pain to the body. By using addressing these stressors, acupressure can help break the cycle of addiction. There are acupressure points for regaining stability, reducing cravings, increasing self-esteem and morale, and for boosting willpower.
