People used alternative medicine for centuries and they used it to cure themselves and remove painful problems from their lives. Acupressure is one of the ways. There are many purposes to this technique and today you will learn how to use it.
Acupressure is much easier than acupuncture and you will only need fingers to use it.
Things You Need To Know Before You Start
First, you need to relax. Try to be calm and comfortable as possible, and sit in a comfortable chair. Don’t cross your legs.
Before you start with this technique, warm up your hands, rubbing them for 60 seconds or so. Your hands will be more sensitive and have better energy flow. Just start the massage by stimulating the point you want.
