Acupressure is a type of alternative medicine that can help you to have a better life. Allow us to tell you more about it.
According to legend, a Chinese peasant suffering from headaches is the origin of acupressure. As he was ploughing, he dropped his plow on his big toe. His headaches disappeared shortly after. The next day, after the onset of a new headache, he repeated the same experience and the result was the same.
It is not known if this story is true or not, but acupressure seems to originate from China, just like acupuncture. But even if the two practices are linked, acupressure does not require needles.
Reduce your stress and pain with acupressure
How does it work? With acupuncture points, which are located on the entire surface of the body, especially along the meridians, which are energy points. But instead of needles, one presses with the fingertips, for example on the acupuncture point between the big toe and the neighbouring toe. Pressing this spot for 2 minutes could help you to significantly reduce your stress, but also relieve back pain and facilitate your digestion.
One study even claims that acupressure could be used to treat Parkinson's disease. And even if it is clear that this alternative is not to the taste of modern medicine supporters, you can choose to try the experiment, and see all its benefits.
