Acupressure points for self-healing
Acupressure points on the hands, palms and fingers
There is a whole science about it (reflexology). This deals with nerve connections and the bioactive points in the body. The healers of the East believe that all health problems occur because of blocked energy pathways. An acupressure massage can trigger the energy blockages and make you feel good again.
Many of the acupressure points are on our palms and fingers. If you press right to the point, the result will not be delayed. Let’s take a look together at where the acupressure points are and what we can do to cure them.
Acupressure for headache
Before you take medicines to relieve the headache, try rubbing your fingertips or the area between your thumb and forefinger for a few minutes. The right point is exactly at an angle on the web between the thumb and forefinger and you should feel slight pain when pressing.
Neck and back pain
If you feel unwell because of back or neck pain and can not get up to stretch a little and stretch your legs, then massage to the tip of your thumb and continue to the wrist. Here are the acupressure points that correspond to the spine. Another point is on the back of the hand, just between the middle finger and forefinger in the direction of the wrist, just behind the two finger joints. This acupressure point relieves the neck pain more.
Acupressure point for breathing difficulties
Easy breathing is an important prerequisite for an unrestricted flow of energy in the body. Press on the left side of the nail of the right thumb for about 3 to 4 minutes. Acupress this point several times a day. This has a liberating effect and dissolves anxiety in the chest area.
In case of stress and weak immune system
When stress and weakened immune system, the same acupressure point is pressed against the hand, as against headache. For this, the soft tissue between thumb and forefinger is strongly pressed for about 10 seconds and let it rest for the same period of time. This should be done up to 3 times and then do the same with the other hand.

When stimulating the acupressure points of the hand, the careful choice of points is crucial because they are two-sided, so to find on both hands. Basically, it is recommended to stimulate up to 3 or 4 points of the hand and not more than 1 or 2 times a day. Furthermore, it is recommended to take a break of 3 to 4 days after 7 days of acupressure. Because over time, the points get used to it. After the break, the acupressure can be resumed.
