Acupressure can be combined with Swedish Massage, or the points can be stimulated independently. Pressure is applied for 15-30 seconds to points along the energy channels over the head and face, chest, arms, stomach, legs, feet and down the back, working away from the lymphatic nodes to encourage waste disposal. By working down the points it becomes apparent where there may be the absence of energy; where the point feels ‘hollow’ and cool, to the area of tension which can usually be felt as a fiery and active due to the blockage of energy, this point is stimulated for a further 10 -20 seconds three times. The previous acupoints are revisited to stimulate the flow of energy and balance, which can result in a release of tension unknown previously. Relief can be temporary, but once points are identified further acupressure and massage can be applied as necessary.
As in any medical treatment there are some times when Acupressure would be inappropriate and should be avoided. These include:
If the person has a heart condition
Just before, or less than 20min after exercise, a meal or a bath
On areas with large moles, warts, abrasions etc.
