Acupressure is a part of Chinese Medicine to treat some of the conditions like back pain, neck pain, etc. by applying pressure to different parts of the body known as acupressure points. Acupressure is safe and gentle.
Acupressure points are places on the skin that are especially sensitive to bio-electrical impulses in the body. Stimulating these points with pressure, needles, or heat triggers the release of endorphins that relieve pain. Acupressure inhibits the pain signals that are transmitted to the brain preventing painful sensations from passing through the spinal cord to the brain. As a result, pain is blocked and the flow of blood and oxygen to the affected area is increased.
