The Benefits of Acupressure
These range from healing the body and balancing the emotions
to clearing the mind and enhancing the spirit, for both
preventive care and creating vibrant health.
Tension & Stress Relief
Acupressure can also relieve emotional pain. From day-to-day pressures to life’s most significant trials, emotional stress causes the body to shut down, which keeps negative feelings stuck, resulting in physical ailments and emotional imbalances. Acupressure techniques release this muscular tension and restore the flow of vital energy, making resolution possible. For an in-depth focus on this topic, see Acupressure for Emotional Healing: A Self-Care Guide for Trauma, Stress & Common Emotional Imbalances by Michael Reed Gach, Ph.D., with 400 illustrations of emotional healing applications.

Using the Healing Touch of Acupressure can also be a practical way of deepening your spiritual life. By lightly touching the Third Eye Point (GV 24.5) just above the bridge of the nose, for a couple of minutes, you can enhance your inner awareness. If you want to progress further, meditate on this point for five to ten minutes each day, and within a few weeks, you may notice that your intuition will begin to increase. Concentrating on the Third Eye Point while touching it lightly with your eyes closed, can nourish your spiritual nature and increase intuition. Using this as a meditation practice, twice a week or more, will develop your intuitive healing skills.
