Important Terms About Acupressure

Acupressure is a form of alternative healing that focuses on a theory of pressure points and energy pathways in the body. Here are some terms to keep in mind when looking for an acupressure specialist.

  • Pressure Points - Specific locations on the skin that are though to stimulate the body's curative properties when pressed or otherwise stimulated. The pressure points are located on the 14 meridians. It is thought that acupressure releases muscular tension and helps the blood circulate.
  • Meridians - Lines of energy that run through the human body, according to the acupressure philosophy. There are 14 meridians, which connect to the fingertips, brain and organs.
  • Acupuncture - A system of applying needles, rather than fingers, to pressure points. As with acupressure, this treatment can be used for various physical conditions, including fertility, pain and psychological disorder.
  • Reiki - A Japanese massage system designed to relax a person and reduce stress. Reiki focuses on the use of a palm techniques to stimulate the pressure points.
  • Myofascial - A form of massage therapy that applies pressure to the deep muscle tissue, helping to relax a patient. Myofascial techniques relax contracted muscles, improve circulation and drain the lymphatic system.
  • Reflexology - An alternative medicine system of applying pressure to the feet, hands or ears. Reflexology requires specific finger and hand techniques.
  • Aromatherapy - The use of essential plant oils to alter a patient's mind or health. Aromatherapy may be used in conjunction with acupressure or reiki in treatment sessions.
  • Shiatsu - As another version of acupressure, Shiatsu uses the same techniques of finger and palm pressure.

    Acupressure is a type of traditional Chinese physical therapy and alternative medicine used for pain management and stress relief. It involves applying pressure to specific points and meridians on the body. This is done by professionals who use their hands, elbows, and a variety of unique devices. The purpose of acupressure therapy is to relive stress, tension and pain from the muscles. This assists people with healing, relaxing, improving reflexes, and recovering from certain injuries. It is important to only seek acupressure therapy from a known professional. There are countless experts in this field. In fact, alternative medicines like acupressure, reflexology, acupuncture, and deep tissue back massage are growing in popularity. Although you may not know it, many people seek out acupuncture treatments for weight loss, or to increase their body’s natural defense or immune system. Unlike acupressure, acupuncture involves hot needles that are inserted into different meridians of the body in order to encourage healing. Not only does a treatment like acupressure manage to relieve stress and pain, but it also delivers positive energy into the muscles. This holistic therapy has been used for centuries as an alternative form of medicine. A major aspect of Chinese medicine involves the yin and yang, which also means soft and hard. There needs to be a combination or balance of these two elements in order for the body to function properly. If you would like to learn more about acupressure, pressure point therapy, reflex treatments, and chi or internal energy, then you should try doing some online research.
