Acupressure Adds Life

While there were a number of options to relieve stress and anxiety, I found palm acupressure and hand massage simple but  very essential and  has more advantage than other anxiety and stress alternative treatment. Aside from relaxing sensation that acupressure provides to your body, it also gives  relief  in other symptoms that needs nonprescription drugs.

Acupressure is related to acupuncture. Acupuncture use needles to certain  points while acupressure use only their thumbs, fingers and knuckle to apply pressure to specific area on the body.  It is better that acupressure is administered by acupuncturist rather that self administered. The acupuncturist can identify the exact points on the body to apply the acupressure. Usually, some people ask the administration of acupuncturist if they want to treat specific ailments like nausea, headaches, joint pains, muscle pains etc.

If your purpose is only for relaxing your body to get rid of stress  you don't need an acupuncturist. You can let somebody do the acupressure at home to relax and revitalized your body. Make sure that it is gentle when applying pressure especially in sensitive parts in your body. Acupressure should be painless when applied. Discontinue if ever you feel pain in specific point. It's the signal that your body says, Stop!

Stress prevents you from the number one  killer in the world. They call it the silent killer. Now your enjoying watching movies, talking to your wife, playing with your kids. seconds or minute later your gone. Avoid hypertension and heart desease. Get rid of stress.

Avoid acupressure in areas where there is wound or bruise, fracture or sprain and  in swollen areas on your  body.Caution! People with diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease and hypertension should consult their physician before jumping into the session and should be administered by qualified therapist
