Acupressure is one of the most practiced therapies globally. It is one of the most ancient arts of healing.
In this therapy, some specific points known as “Acu-points” present in the body are pressed gently or with pressure as per its need.
This technique helps in accumulating the self-healing properties of a body. In acupuncture pressure is applied through needles. On the other side, in acupressure pressure is applied on the specific points manually.
Acupressure works on the concept that there are about 14 meridians present in a human body which are considered to be the specific points that are responsible for flowing energy in the body.
When the meridian blocks the flow of energy then it results into worsening the health of the human body. This is when Acupressure therapy is required.
