Acupressure is a technique related to acupuncture, where the energies of the body are regulated by manipulating points on the body. This has effects on the emotions, tension and physical conditions.
The points are commonly called “acupuncture points,” “pressure points,” “acupoints” or “acupressure points.”
Acupressure involves pressure points on the body with fingers or hands to alter the internal flow of a supposed vital force or energy called chi, strengthening it, calming it or removing a blockage of the flow.
Acupressure has beneficial effects in curing many diseases. These diseases may include metabolic disorders, body deformity, inflammation of body tissues, digestion related problems, and heart related problems and problems with the nervous system, to name a few.
