A self healing mechanism has been created by nature in the body itself. It is our natural tendency to relieve pain by pressing, massaging or twisting. This natural act of healing has been systematically analyzed and structured as Acupressure Therapy.
Nature is perfect in itself. So is everything created by it. Our body is simply perfect. To heal ourselves, a natural healing process has been created in our body. Whenever there is any pain in the body, our first reaction is to hold that area and trying to relieve pain by pressing or massaging the affected area. Nature has gifted everyone with this healing ability. This healing abiliy of providing relief by pressing, massaging and twisting is termed as Acupressure.
Acupressure is composed of two words – Acu and Pressure. Acu means needle and pressure means to apply force. So pressing a point as small as needle to treat a disease is whole idea of Acupressure Therapy. Various Acupoints exist in our body from treatment point of view.
Everything in this cosmos including our body is made up of energy. We have pathways in our body for continuous flow of energy. These pathways are called meridians. According to Acupressure, any disease in the body is due to imbalance of energy.So to cure diseases, energy is trasported from one area to another to create balance.
Various modes of treatment are available and they have been given different names –
- Seed Therapy – When this energy balance is done with the help of seeds it is called Seed Therpay.
- Magnet Therpay – Energy is increased or decreases with the magnets
- Colour Therapy – Colours have their own energy. Colors are also used to balance energy.
