How Acupressure Can Alleviate Pain Using Pressure Points

Stimulating certain pressure points in your body can have a tremendous impact on any pain you may be feeling, as well as your mental health. This method has been used for the over 2,000 years. The theory behind it is you can activate your body’s natural healing by putting pressure in certain spots. It works similarly to acupuncture, which uses tiny needles, but is much quicker and easier to do in your own home. Before trying this healing method, it is crucial that you learn which points affect which parts of your body. It is also a good idea to set aside a couple of minutes and be in a place that you feel completely relaxed. This will help amplify the effects of acupressure.

One of the most important pressure points to know about is often referred to as the Third Eye. It is said to be connected to the pineal gland, which is involved with the production of melatonin in the body. By massaging this point, you can help to bring back repressed memories, treat depression and mood swings, relieve physical pain, and even become more intuitive. This point is located in between and just slightly above the eyebrows. When you have found the right spot, you will notice a slight depression beneath the skin. Although pressure is an important part of acupressure, you will want to be gentle with this point. Massage it in slow circles. This is said to adjust the amount of energy flowing to your pineal gland, which is what helps you relax and focus.
