Self massage techniques using acupressure

The origins of acupressure are as ancient as the natural instinct to use our hands spontaneously to hold tense or painful areas of the body. This happens most commonly when we have a headache and we hold or rub the temples or forehead.

Thousands of years ago the Chinese discovered that by pressing certain points on the body this relieved pain locally and also benefited areas further away from the site of pain. With years of keen observation they also found that certain areas of the body influenced the functioning of the internal organs. It was through this research that the arts of acupressure and acupuncture were developed.

The Chinese have been practising self-acupressure for thousands of years as a way of keeping themselves both emotionally and physically well.
