Watch out benefits of Indian Acupressure with practical demo by Dr Vinod Gupta (Acupressure Therapist, Hisar). He has demonstrated all important acupressure points related to particular body organ and general diseases.
Acupressure is an ancient healing method that involves using skillfully pressing key points on the fingers and other parts of body to stimulate the natural healing ability of the body. When these key points are pressed, muscular tension is released which leads to enhanced blood circulation. Some of the acupressure points are significant as they are related to a specific part of the body while others are more general in their effect.
Acupressure is usually given in a similar fashion to traditional massage. The points on the body are massaged using finger or thumb and sometimes a blunt object in a practically rapid circular motion with a medium pressure. This massage can be last between 5 and 15 minutes. Some of the most common acupressure techniques are rubbing, kneading, percussion and vibration. The points on fingers, hands, elbows, knees and feet are often used to massage other parts of the body.
Acupressure can be performed in sitting, standing or lying down position.
Acupressure is based on a theory that there is some sort of invisible energy in all individuals which flows in the body in a manner similar to that of the flow of blood. The acupressure massage therapy stimulates and activates the body’s own energies to help fight illness and restore harmony.
Acupressure has a lot of advantages for physical, spiritual, and mental health. It can helps to relieve pain, reduce strain, increase blood circulation, and provides a relaxing effect to the body. Acupressure can help in treatment of muscular pain, headaches, migraines, insomnia, depression, toothache, dizziness, menstrual pain, digestive disorders including diarrhea and constipation, nausea, motion sickness, stress and tiredness.
In conventional allopathic medicines the patient has to rely on powerful medicines which have damaging side effects on our body systems.
A person can cure his general medical problem easily by pressing specific acupressure points with a finger or thumb in his home. The limitation is that he must know the acupressure points for various organs and also the technique of performing acupressure. If wrong points are pressed, this may lead to further complications.
