Acupressure points for self-healing
Acupressure points on the hands, palms and fingers
There’s a whole science about it (reflexology). This deals with nerve connections and the bioactive points in the body. Eastern healers believe that all health problems arise because of blocked energy pathways. An acupressure massage can release the energy blockages and make you feel good again.
Many of the acupressure points are on our palms and fingers. If you press the point correctly, the result will not be delayed. Let’s see together exactly where the acupressure points are and what we can heal from them.
Acupressure for headaches
Before resorting to medication to relieve the headache, try massaging your fingertips or the area between your thumb and forefinger for a few minutes. The correct point is exactly at the angle on the web between the thumb and the index finger and you should feel slight pain when pressing.
Neck and back pain
If you feel uncomfortable with back or neck pain and cannot stand up to stretch a little and stretch your legs, then start massaging at the tip of your thumb and moving up to your wrist. This is where the acupressure points that correspond to the spine are located. Another point is on the back of the hand, exactly between the middle finger and index finger in the direction of the wrist, directly behind both finger joints. This acupressure point relieves more of the neck pain.
Acupressure point for breathing difficulties
Trouble-free breathing is an important basic requirement for an unrestricted flow of energy in the body. Press on the left side of the nail of the right thumb for about 3 to 4 minutes. Acupressure this point several times a day. This has a liberating effect and relieves feelings of oppression in the chest area.
For stress and a weak immune system
In the case of stress and a weakened immune system, the same acupressure point is pressed on the hand as against a headache. To do this, the soft tissue between the thumb and forefinger is pressed hard for approx. 10 seconds and then left loose for the same period of time. Do this up to 3 times and then do the same on the other hand.
Interesting: This point is also often used in acupuncture to alleviate various ailments.
When stimulating the acupressure points of the hand, the careful choice of the points is crucial, because they are to be found on both sides, i.e. on both hands. It is generally recommended to stimulate up to 3 or 4 points on the hand and not more than 1 or 2 times a day. It is also recommended to take a break of 3 to 4 days after 7 days of acupressure. Because over time, the points get used to it. After the break, acupressure can be resumed.
Acupressure cannot be used to treat medical emergencies, but it is a helpful first aid for certain ailments.
