There are about 22 pressure points in the body, and the concept of pressure points is nothing new. For centuries, acupressure has been a relief to people who may have tried other avenues, but they don’t work, or if they want something natural to help them.

It is a tried and true ancient technique that can work wonders if done correctly. Pressure points are sensitive points or areas that can be trapped for many uses, and the stimulation of these points can alleviate pain.

Pressure points are anywhere in the body at which a pulse can be felt, and the artery can be pressurized to stop bleeding at the distal point. It stimulates blood flow in the area, as it flushes out the accumulated toxins while allowing more oxygen and nutrients to the area. Pressing these points will release the production of endorphins, which help with the pain.

There are about ten pressure points in the human body. These pressure points are certain overly sensitive areas on the surface of the human body. There are several ways to exploit the use of the pressure point.

For instance, martial artists and fighters apply the use of a simple but forceful push on a pressure point to quickly disarm or disable their attackers, thereby bringing themselves into the advantage of the combat. Stimulating these pressure points also aids in relieving pains; therefore, therapists and people who do massage and spa use their knowledge of pressure points to advantage.

Examples of pressure points include Temples, Dokko, Kote, In the webbing of the hand, Uchi Kuro bush, and many others. The temple pressure point is located in between the eye and ear at about an inch from the edge of the eyebrow. Pressing those points on both sides can affect relief from headaches.

There are about 22 pressure points on the human body. Some people believe that applying pressure to our body’s pressure points can help relieve pain, create balance, and enhance the overall health of the body.

The heart, for example, is a pressure point that is located in the crease of your wrist. Reflexologists believe that applying gentle pressure to the heart pressure point may protect against anxiety, insomnia, heart palpitations, and depression. The small intestine pressure point is located at the outer part of your hand.

Reflexologists think that applying firm pressure on this point can help alleviate neck pain, earaches, and even anything from mild to debilitating headaches that specifically occur at the backside of your head. You can locate your lung meridian pressure point by looking at the edge of your hand. The inner gate is the particular spot on the crease of your wrist. Reflexologists say that if you massage this point firmly with your thumb, it will assist in digestion and relieve any nausea or stomach pain.
