Fast-Track Your Health with Acupressure

Fast-Track Your Health with Acupressure


Traditional Chinese Medicine has helped people for thousands of years and offers a proven, comprehensive approach for stimulating the body's natural healing processes. The most well known of the great pillars of oriental medicine is acupuncture - the insertion of tiny needles at special points on the body which directly signal the body to re-balance the central nervous system and resolve health issues. Modern researchers have been studying acupuncture for decades and have found that it lives up to it's traditional reputation for effective healing. At Three Mountains Wellness, hundreds of patients have benefited from the blend of traditional wisdom and modern research and found help for their health challenges with acupuncture and the related practice of acupressure.



Acupressure stimulates the same points used in acupuncture, but instead of needles, you use the pressure and qi of your own hands to activate the points. I have found that patients can learn simple acupressure techniques fairly quickly and I encourage everyone to try because acupressure has several advantages over acupuncture. Acupuncture, like most medical procedures, is something that is done to you. You come in, get needles, fall asleep and wake up feeling like a new person, ready to go on about your life. It's a great way to solve health issues. But you haven't learned anything about how your body works or how to control it. You are relying on the skills of your acupuncturist to do that for you. Acupressure, on the other hand, is a skill that you develop and once you have it, you can use it to help yourself any time for the rest of your life.

I believe that it's worth the time to learn acupressure. You don't have to study for years to benefit from acupressure, but if you enjoy the practice you may find yourself on a lifelong journey. Start with one technique and apply it to a couple of points suggested by your acupuncturist. Do this every day between office visits. Acupressure is similar to biofeedback but it targets your unique health issues. Over time, with practice, you will find that you start to develop a sense of how your body works, and you'll be able to head off problems while they are still small. It will also make your acupuncture visits more effective if you keep your qi flowing well by doing acupressure every day. That way the qi of the needles can go right to the deeper energetic levels that are often the source of health problems instead of clearing surface obstructions for most of your visit.

I've created an Acupressure Log Book that will help you develop your sense of what's happening in your body, fast-track your skills and and help you change your health for the better. I think there's no better way to track your progress than writing down your struggles and successes. It helps keep you focused and provides a record of the acupressure points and techniques that work best for you in every situation. And you can reference it at any time. As you fill in the pages, this book will become the personal reference guide to you - your best points, your best techniques, and your progress. Most importantly, it provides a record of your ever increasing understanding and control over the inner workings of your body.
