Girl YogaLiving with Stress can exhaust your vital energy, effecting the quality of your life.  Stress causes shallow breathing, which can lead to irritability, frustration, and eventually chronic fatigue. Many people turn to unhealthy habits like smoking, overeating, and alcoholic drinking to counteract stress.  Instead, you can use Acupressure point therapy and Yoga Therapy to manage stress and enhance your life.

AcupressureAcupressure Therapy and Yoga therapy are an ancient healing arts developed in Asia over 5,000 years ago. Using the power and sensitivity of the hand instead of needles, acupressure points are effective in relieving stress-related ailments, in self-treatment and in preventive health care. Acupressure releases tension, increases circulation, reduces stress and pain and at the same time heightens well-being. Yoga Therapy uses full body postures which presses specific acupressure points, therapeutic yogic breathing, dietary therapy, healing visualizations and more to achieve well-being.

Acupressure points use the fingers or various parts of the body to press key pressure points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. When these trigger points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force to aid healing.

Acupressure releases tension, increases the circulation of blood, and heightens the body's vital life energy to aid healing. Acupuncture points and Acupressure points are identical; however Acupuncture employs needles, while Acupressure points use gentle but firm finger pressure. Acupressure points relieve pain, trauma, and burnout.  You can do it yourself, anytime, anywhere.  Acupressure strengthens resistance to disease and promotes wellness by relaxing the body and relieving stress.

How does Acupressure Relieve Stress?
Tension tends to concentrate around the acupressure points (also called pressure points, trigger points, or acupoints). When a muscle is in spasm or chronically tense, the muscle fibers contract due to the secretion of lactic acid caused by fatigue, trauma, stress factors, chemical imbalances, or poor circulation. As an Acupressure point is held, the muscle tension yields to the finger pressure, enabling the muscle fibers to elongate and relax, blood to flow freely, and toxins to be released and eliminated. Increased circulation from relieving stress also brings more oxygen and other nutrients to affected areas. This increases the body's resistance to illness and promotes a longer, healthier, more vital life. When the blood and bioelectrical energy circulate properly, there is a greater sense of harmony, health, and well-being.

A Self-Care Guide for Trauma,

Michael Reed Gach PhD & Beth Henning, ABT

Long known for its ability to alleviate physical pain, the ancient healing art of acupressure also relieves stress and emotional pain. From day-to-day pressures to life's most significant trials, traumatic events cause the body to shut down and keep negative feelings "stuck," resulting in physical ailments and emotional imbalances. Acupressure, which uses the fingers to stimulate the same points targeted in acupuncture-releases this muscular tension and restores the flow of vital energy, making resolution possible.
