Definition of Acupressure

Acupressure is a natural science, philosophy and a rational method of therapy based on an inbuilt mechanism provided in the human body by the Nature.

  • The word ‘acupressure’ has two parts, ‘acu’ and ‘pressure’.

  • Acu means needle (or minute points like the tip of a needle) and ‘pressure’ means to press (with the help of thumb, fingers or any other object).

  • Acupressure refers to a therapy wherein pressure is applied at specified locations of therapeutic value in the human body (acu points) to heal diseases.

Basic Principle of Acupressure

Acupressure seeks to cure diseases by restoring the imbalance of energy flow in the human body.

As per the basic principle of the therapy, energy is constantly flowing in the human body along defined pathways known as meridians.

A disease occurs if this energy flow becomes excess or deficient, gets impeded or counter-flows due to various external or internal factors.

Basic Principle of Acupressure

A number of points known as acu points are located along these meridians and control the flow of energy on these pathways, just the way electrical switches/regulators control the flow of current in a circuit.

Stimulation of these acu points with pressure using specific techniques corrects the energy imbalance along a meridian and the disease gets cured.

Meridian Theory of Acupressure

Sujok Acupressure

In classical acupressure, acu points are found on the entire body at various locations from head to the toe.

In the year 1987, Prof. Park Jae Woo of Korea established that the human hands and the feet are replica of the entire body

&

exact correspondence of body acu points exists on the hands/feet.

It is thus possible to practice acupressure solely on the hands or feet.
