Acupressure is an all-natural, easily done technique that can be very beneficial in easing pain, releasing stress, improving sleep, and a variety of other issues. It’s uncomplicated, works quickly, and it’s quite relaxing.
Acupressure recognizes the human as an energetic being with a system of energy meridians. The meridians are much like our veins or our lymph system, except that, instead of transporting something tangible like blood or lymphatic fluid, these energy meridians transport our Qi or energy. Life flows smoothly when the system flows smoothly, but when there’s a blockage in the system, a problem will manifest in life. It might be a pain, illness, injury, negative emotion, difficulty focusing, or any number of other problems, including things that seem to be outside, like difficult people or circumstances.
Massaging endpoints along these meridians can release the blockages, get the good energy flowing again, and make life much more enjoyable. See the graphic for some suggestions.
