Acupressure, Let Your Fingers do the Walking

Written by Jeff Behar, MS, MBA   

Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body's life force to aid healing.

Acupressure vs. Acupuncture 

Acupuncture and acupressure use the same points, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses the gentle but firm pressure of hands (and even feet).

There is a massive amount of scientific data that demonstrates why and how acupuncture is effective. But acupressure, the older of the two traditions, was neglected after the Chinese developed more technological methods for stimulating points with needles and electricity.

Both acupuncture and acupressure are used to stimulate what Chinese medical practitioners call chi—the body’s most basic healing energy. The main advantage of acupressure is that is the most effective method for self-treatment of tension-related ailments, and can be done just about anywhere with no special equipment required —all you need are your hands, a little knowledge and some time. It’s also cheap—free, in fact, once you’ve learned the basics. And it’s simple and safe. If you use common sense, the only thing you can do wrong is be a little too vigorous.

Many American physicians and health professionals say that both of these techniques are powerful methods for pain relief and disease treatment.

Common Uses of Acupressure

Acupressure is a very effective technique for relieving everyday aches, pains and stress. Common ailments acupressure is said to help include:

  • back pain
  • eye strain
  • headaches
  • insomnia
  • neck pain or stiffness
  • menstrual pain
  • sinus pain
  • ulcer pain
Acupressure can also reduce the pain of tendon injuries, and alleviate constipation and other digestive problems. 

History of Acupressure

Acupressure is the older, original technique, a Chinese home remedy that gave rise to the more “technological” approach of acupuncture. 

The basic human impulses—to touch, to heal—were combined in China with the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, which has as its original text the nearly 4,000-year-old Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine. In that text, and over the next two millennia, Chinese doctors discovered a system of channels and points on the body that, if correctly touched or stimulated, would relieve pain and speed healing. 

The traditional Chinese doctors said these channels, called meridians, were the invisible wires that conducted the body’s chi, or energy. If these channels were disturbed—if the energy flowing through them was too slow or...
