SAN DIEGO – Acupressure treatment promotes healing by improving the flow of energy throughout the body. This flow of energy is referred to as qi (pronounced chee) in Eastern medicine and is considered to be the life force present in every living being. The flow of qi can be inhibited through the physical stresses and emotional strains of life, often resulting in acute and chronic forms of pain, illness, and fatigue.
Eastern medicine offers complementary and natural treatments such as acupuncture and acupressure, which focus on stimulating nerves and relieving muscle tension in key pressure points. When the affected points are stimulated and massaged, the flow of qi is restored along these points and the body can work to bring about healing.
Acupressurists, like acupuncturists, are trained to know the role that each pressure point plays in the flow of qi. While the acupuncture technique involves the use of needles to stimulate these points, acupressure uses message therapy to stimulate and relieve tension on these points. This allows the acupressurist to incorporate client feedback into the treatment to ensure that it is both safe and effective.
A quick search for acupressure in the Google Scholar database reveals a large number of articles that have been published about treatment using acupressure points. Among these articles are findings that acupressure is effective in treating several pain conditions, including nausea, fatigue, anxiety, low back pain, cancer-related fatigue, pain associated with pregnancy and birth, and much more.
