Before we start with this article, you should know that the Acupressure has been a part of the ancient Chinese medicine for more than 5,000 years. According to the acupressure experts, by putting a good amount of pressure on certain points on the body it can help you relieve stress, stimulate the function of different organs and treats some health conditions. Acupressure works the same way as Acupuncture. The only real difference is that in Acupressure we use our fingertips instead of needles. And, in my personal opinion, the best thing about acupressure is that you can use it yourself as it doesn’t require medical or expert attention. The healing pressure massage on certain parts of the body, also called acupressure points, relieves pain and improves overall health (reduce pain, nausea, vertigo, headaches).
- Heart palpitations (The Sea of Tranquility)
Heart palpitation – yes, we’ve all experienced this unpleasant feeling of increased heartbeat (especially when we are stressed out or anxious). Don’t worry, because this “condition” is not life-threatening. But, it can be really upsetting. Ladies and gentlemen, today is your lucky day, because in this article we’re going to show you how to easily normalize your heartbeat by applying pressure to the point known as the ‘sea of peace’ in holistic medicine. Here’s what you need ti know – this point is located in the central part of the breast bone and it’s believed to promote emotional balance. It can help you focus, relax and remain conscious of the importance of deep breathing. This practice is not only believed to help relieve stress and anxiety; it may also be effective in helping those with depression, chronic fatigue, PTSD, hormonal imbalances, and those in the recovery period following an injury or surgery.
- The Third Eye Point
The Third Eye point – first of all, you should know that this point is located in the area between the eyebrows. It’s located almost in the middle of the forehead. And, you’ll be amazed when we tell you that by applying pressure on this point will help you calm the minds, clarify your ideas, strengthen your mental intuition and projection. People, you can use this technique to relieve headaches, dizziness, sinusitis, etc. According to the acupressure experts, to activate this point, you need to close your eyes and sit in relaxed position. Stimulate this point with your middle finger, for 1 minute and breathe deeply.
According to the acupressure experts, massaging this point will help you create a “movement” that will improve the breathing process and give you a sense of relief.
You should be very careful, because stress and anxiety “block” the flow of energy, which can cause different health problems. So, by massaging this point, you’ll unblock the energy flow and reduce stress.
The palm point is located on one of the most important meridians (energy channels), which affects the heart, liver and pancreas. This point is also very useful for treating headaches, insomnia, abdominal and digestive problems. These problems are all caused by stress.
Many experts think that massaging this point is the best treatment for treating pancreas. It’s located in the center of the foot.
