If you’ve ever pressed the skin between your fingers to help you relax when you’re tense, then you’ve been using acupressure, whether you realized it or not.
Improve all aspects of your health with point massage
Better health and overall well-being
Acupressure is the science of applying light pressure to specific areas or points on the body that correspond to different organs and muscles. The science is based on the belief that the entire body is made up of vital energy called “chi” that moves along invisible lines. Health problems arise when the meridians are blocked. Acupressure can help here. It not only unblocks these areas but also helps the body function optimally.
It helps to recover faster
Due to its nature, acupressure is known to relieve muscle tension, promote blood circulation, and improve the body’s energy and vitality to aid healing. So, if you are suffering from any ailment, acupressure can help you heal faster.
It relieves the pain
Acupressure is a solution for chronic pain relief such as headaches. In addition to the unpleasant sensation, the pain can be accompanied by muscle tension. If this tension persists for a long time, it can lead to secondary symptoms. Acupressure can help relieve pain as well as stimulate the body’s production of endorphins, which are natural pain relievers. In the case of chronic headaches, acupressure can be more effective than medication.
Soothes and relieves muscle tension
The benefits of both deep tissue and acupressure are a more relaxed body and mind. Acupressure therapy involves the application of massage techniques such as strong pressure, stretching, or rhythmic tapping. These techniques soothe tense muscles and stimulate blood circulation in oxygen-starved areas. A reduction in muscle tension often leads to a calmer mental state as well.
Improves blood circulation
When applied correctly, acupressure helps promote blood circulation. When you apply pressure to certain points, it helps to activate and open blood flow in the blood vessels under the skin. Good blood circulation helps almost all organs in the body to regenerate and work optimally.
If you’re like many people who struggle with chronic pain, anxiety, or depression, you probably have trouble sleeping. A 2017 study found that people who underwent acupressure for four weeks improved their sleep. These benefits are probably related to calming the mind and relaxing the body.
