The Magic of Acupressure

I recently had the opportunity to experience (up close and personal) the benefits of Accupressure.. And I was personally impressed and amazed at the magic I experienced.. I call it magic as there was some aches and pain which were plaguing me for years, and in a span of a few seconds I has instant relief.... Superb!

What is Acupressure?
Acupressure has been around in this world for an unknown number of years now. It is a science that has been exists in different parts of the world for many years, but as of today, it exists mainly in Asian countries like India, China, Japan, and Korea.

Acupressure is an ancient healing art developed in Asia over 5,000 years ago. It is a branch of traditional Chinese medicine which emphasizes preventing illness, dealing with underlying causes in depth and treating the whole person. An acupressurist works with the same points used in acupuncture - called acupoints - stimulating these healing sites with finger pressure, rather than inserting fine needles.
Acupressure uses the power and sensitivity of human touch to eliminate stress, relieve pain and alleviate acute and chronic conditions. It is a science that deals with the human body and the flow of natural energy within the body. It is a science, and there is nothing supernatural or magical about acupressure. This medical science is practiced with the use of only one human tool: the thumb. Pressure is applied on different 'pressure points' on the body, stimulating the corresponding glands of the body.

My Reflections and Ruminations
* You can experience and feel instant relief for several problems in about 1 second - This was an amazing experience!
* The results will depend entirely on the expertise of the treating doctors / consultant as the right energy points need to be stimulated or opened
* The kind of benefits also depend on how clearly and precisely you are able to articulate your specific problem
* From experience what I can say is that acupressure aims to improve the flow of life energy in your body. And most physical ailments are manifestations of improper / inadequate flow of life energy, so when the energy blockages are removed or energy passages are cleansed, it improves the flow of life energy.. And this improves your overall state of well being

NOTE: Above is based on my personal experiences only. As of date, I am NOT an expert on this subject! Though this experience has made me interested in the subject and I do intend to read and learn more....
