What can Acupressure achieve?

An increasing number of research studies shows that acupressure slows the heart rate, lowers blood pressure, promotes blood circulation and lymph flow, relaxes muscles, improves range of motion, and increases the production of endorphins.

Acupressure can stimulate weak, inactive muscles and thus partially compensate for the lack of exercise that can result from illness or injury. It can also hasten and lead to a more complete recovery from exercise or injury.

Your are receiving the acupressure medical technique often used in conjunction with acupuncture or reflexology. It is based on the concept of life energy (q’i) which flows though “meridians” or energy channels in the body. The purpose of this treatment is to clear any blockages in these meridians. Pressure may be applied by hand, by elbow, or with various devices.

Health Benefits Of Reflexology
Reflexology is a treatment based on the principle that there are areas and points on the feet, hands, and ears that are connected through the nervous system to corresponding parts of the body. When pressure is applied to these areas and points it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels and helps to restore homeostasis balance in the body.

There are approximately 7,000 nerve endings in the human foot and each of them is a reflex point that corresponds to a body part. Reflexologists use special finger and thumb manipulations to stimulate these reflex points and they know exactly which area of the foot corresponds to which body part by learning the following Reflexology chart.

The benefits of reflexology include its ability to stimulate nerve function, increase energy, boost circulation, induce a deep state of relaxation, eliminate toxins, stimulate the central nervous system, prevent migraines, clean up urinary tract conditions, speed-up recovery after injury or surgery, help relieve sleep disorders, reduce depression, and relieve pain. Furthermore, it can help ease the treatment of various types of cancer and even helps to soothe the pains of pregnancy, even those occurring after the delivery.
