Touch: A Starting Point in the Vast World of Healing


Every human being has the potential to heal and be healed. It can start with something as simple as a few deep breaths, which can clear your head and make you feel renewed and energized. Or maybe it’s through a friendly glance or a smile, or the kindness of going out of your way to help someone. Healing can even come from a few sips of water, which moistens, nourishes, and enlivens your whole body.

Beyond these everyday gifts, there are many simple healing methods to help ourselves and others obtain greater wellness. It takes focus and practice, however, to develop these abilities fully.

My greatest way to heal involves the power of touch.

As I touch, I focus on deepening my breath and on my intention to heal from my heart. I know that my touch has the ability to communicate, beyond what words can say.

You, too, can learn how to touch points like this – to open healing energy. The acupressure points are where this energy gets blocked. Holding the points is one of the most powerful ways to do pure energy work, and transform physical and emotional problems.

When an Acupressure point is held with just the right amount of pressure, it can reach depths within you. This can help you transcend the limitations and traps of negative thoughts and feelings. Instead of closing up in judgment, worry, doubt, or expectation, you can begin to relax and open up.

When you’re being touched or held in a safe way, it supports you in letting go and coming back to feeling whole again. This is something you can learn to do for yourself and to share with others. Try this with any of the points you’re learning in my blog articles and on the website.

When you use touch in a conscious way with acupressure points,

your body opens, your breath opens, and thus you are renewed.

P.S. I just converted my Basic Acupressure booklet and Intermediate/Advanced booklet, both with lots of point illustrations, into e-bookslets, so you can get them at a discount, and not pay any shipping. Please spread the word so more people can learn acupressure.
