What is Acupressure?

Acupressure is synonymous with the basic principles taken from the Chinese art called acupuncture. The only difference between these two ancient forms of medicinal treatment is touch. In acupressure the fingers are used to knead certain pressure points, whereas in Acupuncture needles are used. Oriental treatments have always been highly regarded as they've stood the test of time.Acupressure is widely practised today, especially by those who work in alternative healing fields, like massage therapy or reflexology. Those who participate in sports, find it beneficial but who would have known how good it is for controlling eating binges?

How does acupressure work?

Acupressure is a unique way to reduce appetite, cravings, and eating compulsions that plague us and make life miserable. Forewarned is forearmed, so knowing exactly what pressure points trigger the diet mechanism in the body, helps enormously. There are four key areas when massaged for half an hour daily can kick-start a tired and over-loaded digestive system, encourage a balanced and healthy diet, and get those fatty deposits shifting.

  • The abdomen - find a spot about six inches down from your belly button and place two fingers on the spot. Gently massage this area as it works well on the digestive system. It also helps relieve constipation which cleanses the body of toxins.
  • The ear - it's a little hard to find at first but locate the dent just under your ear that connects to your jaw. Apply pressure to it with your forefinger. This pressure point can help control robust and unhealthy appetites.
  • The knee - apply your hands two inches below the kneecap. This is great for blood circulation and purification.
  • The arm - find the spot where your elbow is hollowed. Apply pressure to stimulate the intestines and flush out toxins.
