Acupressure

Acupressure

Acupressure is one of the oldest and most widespread healing methods in the world. By using deep finger pressure at certain points, practitioners can reduce tension, increase circulation and offer relief for many complaints. It is an ancient medicine practice using the fingers, knuckle or other objects to create pressure on particular points in the body called meridians. Acupressure has been practiced since ages to improve the flow of prana or life force through the body. Pressure is applied to certain specific areas of the body for about 30 seconds.

In Ayurveda the pressure points or the meridians are called Marma points. These are considered as energy points and they help in stimulating not only circulation, but also improve mental and emotional outlook. The Marma points are located throughout the body. Depending on the location of the Marma, Ayurvedic Acupressure helps relieve pain and stiffness, improving oxygenated blood flow into the area serviced by the pressure point. For instance, the two paired points at the upper level of the shoulder near the neck, called Urdhva Skandha, when pressed simultaneously, can help relieve a pinched nerve, or can treat rotator cuff tendonitis. As for the emotional aspects, applying this sort of pressure at these points can relieve headaches, while also promoting calmness.
