Acupressure is an ancient Chinese healing art developed over 5000 years ago. Similar to acupuncture using needles on the vital energy points of the meridians, acupressure uses only the fingers to massage on the energy points which activates the body to relief the symptoms and to heal itself. Acupressure massage is very effective in lowering high blood pressure, increasing circulation and vitality, relieving pains and aches, reducing stress and is a superb self-treatment for boosting the body immunity. It is a natural healing method and a safe alternative healing modality for treating hypertension and other associated conditions.
There are altogether nine easy exercises in the full routine. The exercises are accompanied by well-illustrated pictures for the locations of the acupressure vital points. All you need is to perform the routine once a day. It will take roughly twenty to thirty minutes and the result is instantaneous. You can also monitor your own progress by measuring your blood pressure before and after performing the acupressure massage routine. In most cases, the systolic pressure will become normalised or have a significant drop after performing a basic twenty to a thirty-minute routine. Diastolic pressure will also have a significant drop corresponding to the systolic pressure drop.
