Acupressure – An Insight Acupressure is an ancient healing art of using fingers to apply pressure on key healing points of your palm and feet. It began in India as early as 5000 years ago. Acupressure is based on the concept of person’s energy or life force. The traditional Chinese explanation is that channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface called meridians.  Western scientists have found that stimulating acupressure points facilitate electromagnetic signals to conduct at its greatest rate than normal conditions. This signal conduction enhances the flow of pain killing biochemicals, like endorphins and immune system cells to specific locations that are injured or vulnerable to disease. Dr. Devendra Vora, A pioneer of Acupressure in India quotes in his book, Health in Your Hands, “In treating any disease, find out the root cause first. It is necessary to remove the root cause of the disease to cure it permanently.” The very thing that is lacking in modern day medicine. It has come down to providing high doses of antibiotics and medicines even for a small illness like common cold. According to Dr. Margaret Chan, director general of the World Health Organization, “Antibiotic resistance could bring about “the end of modern medicine as we know it.”Chan said hospitals have become “hotbeds for highly-resistant pathogens” like methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, “increasing the risk that hospitalization kills instead of cures.”Indeed, diseases that were once curable, such as tuberculosis, are becoming harder and more expensive to treat. Like any other therapy, Acupressure works if the treatment is given regularly.  The interesting aspect of Acupressure is that patient himself can stimulate the points on his own body without any side effect.  Hence, it is called as “DO IT YOURSELF THERAPY”.
