Introduction

Accupressure is one of the oldest healing systems, and it has existed in India and the Orient for several centuries. For years this traditional drugless therapy was confined to few countries until the western countries, especially the United States of America showed interest in developing and adapting acupressure.

Shiatsu of Japan, Acupuncture of China, and hand and foot reflexology of the east, etc., are various forms of acupressure. All these techniques are based on stimulation of specific reflex points in the body in order to provide relief from pain or other ailments. Our bodies have remarkable self-healing energy forces which are used by natural and all other holistic sciences of healing such as nature cure, acupressure, acupuncture, etc.

The healing energies flow through the body in specific pathways called meridians. Each of these meridians have nerve centres and reflex points in various parts of the body. In acupuncture, needles are inserted into these nerve centres and reflex points, whereas in acupressure, the healer’s fingers apply pressure. Must of the reflex points where pressure is applied are located on the foot, hand, back, face, and the ears.
