'Acupressure', or 'Shiatsu',  means "finger pressure".  It is one of those natural remedies which has no side effects and has been applied to cure and heal various ailments for decades.  It has been used for centuries as a diagnostic tool as well as an alternative cure system for cure and healing. In acupressure physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points by the hand, elbow, or with various devices.

The healing art of acupressure is at least 5000 years old and remains the 3rd most popular method for pain and illness relief in the world. Based on the same principles as acupuncture, (but using pressure instead of needles), acupressure works by stimulating specific reflex points located along the lines of energy which run through the body, called meridians. There are 14 main meridian lines and numerous secondary lines, each of which corresponds to an individual organ or physical system of the body.

Acupressure for diagnose purpose:

The points on the palms and feet reflect the condition of their related organs. This makes acupressure a good diagnostic tool. By feeling the palms and feet with gentle pressure it is possible to get a fair idea about the diseased parts. If pain is observed on any point, the body part related to that

point needs immediate attention.

Application of pressure on palms and feet has the effect of charging various body parts. When specific points are pressed the nerves leading to the related parts are actuated which in turn stimulates those parts. As a result flow of blood and other body fluids improve providing nourishment to those parts and cleaning away the waste material more efficiently. Any undesirable deposits start dissolving. Functions of the glands improve. There is overall rejuvenation in the body.

In conjunction with proper medical attention, however, gentle acupressure (safely away from the diseased area and the internal organs) can help soothe and relieve a patient's distress and pain.

While acupressure can be used with conventional methods of pain relief, it can also provide a cost-efficient alternative to medical or surgical procedures. Some of the other advantages of Acupressure are:                                          

? Acupressure is non-invasive and there are no negative side-effects.

? Acupressure is safe, easy to learn and do on oneself at home.

? Acupressure promotes and generates overall healing, along with symptom relief.

? Acupressure accelerates healing from injuries and surgery.

? Chronic conditions that have resisted other treatments are frequently relieved through acupressure.

? Sensitive acupressure points may offer early screening or diagnostic tools for conditions like breast cancer.

How acupressure is used for cure and healing?

There is a natural source of healing power in everyone. When this healing power is activated, it triggers series of internal processes, producing a Healing Response. Pain or injury act to alert the body that damage control is needed to repair the affected area. The body releases endorphins which reduce pain, and heart and blood pressure rates increase to eliminate toxins from the damaged area.

Acupressure induces this Healing Response by simulating injury through pressure. When applied to specific points along the meridians, the pressure tricks the body into producing a healing in the organs and systems corresponding to that acupressure point. While the body is healing the point of pain, it produces a Healing Response all along the meridian. Through repetitive acupressure treatments, the body balances its vital energies, restoring health and promoting longevity. It learns a new and effective way to activate the Healing Response and increases the power to heal itself.

Regular practice of acupressure is a good preventive option to ward off diseases. Anyone can learn simple workout routine with acupressure. However in case of serious medical problems it is always advisable to seek expert advice from a trained practitioner of acupressure.
