  • Slide 1 - Acupressure Yin & Yang
  • Slide 2 - What is Acupressure? Acupressure is an ancient healing art developed in Asia over 5,000 years ago that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body's life force energy (Qi) to aid healing. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same points, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses gentle but firm pressure.
  • Slide 3 - The Advantages of using acupressure relieving pain balancing the body maintaining good health. the healing touch of acupressure reduces tension, increases circulation, and enables the body to relax deeply. by relieving stress, acupressure strengthens resistance to disease and promotes wellness.
  • Slide 4 - Another Kind of Acupressure-Jin Shin Do The Jin Shin Do (仁神道), it means “The Way of the Compassionate Spirit” is the guiding energy behind this complete system of acupressure. It developed in the Taoist and Buddhist temples of China and then brought to Japan. This style of acupressure gently holds each point for a minute or more.
  • Slide 5 - Channels or Meridians—The invisible pathways of Qi Chinese use the term “Jing Luo” (筋絡) which means: channels, conduit, meridian, etc. These are the invisible channels through which Qi circulates throughout the body. The acupressure points (or holes as the Chinese term “xue” (穴位) is more aptly translated means) are the locations where the Qi of the Channels rises close to the surface of the body. There are 12 main meridians--6 Yin are: Heart, Lung, Spleen, Liver, Kidney, and Pericardium. 6 Yang: Small intestine, Large intestine, Stomach, Gall Bladder, Urinary Bladder, Triple Burnner. And numerous minor ones, which form a network of energy channels. Each meridian is related to, and named after, an organ or function. There are more than 400 acupoints and there may be as many as 2000 points in use for different treatment.
  • Slide 6 - Meridian Channels
  • Slide 7 - How to Find The Points Of the hundreds of acupressure points on the body, most either lie under-neath major muscle groups or follow the bone structure, residing in the joints or in the hollows of bone. In order to find an acupressure point with your hands, concentrate on feeling for a muscular cord or a hollow in the bone structure. Feel for a slight indentation or depression between the tendons and muscles at each point. Once you have found a muscular cord, press directly on it; or if you feel a bony hollow, slowly press directly into it.
  • Slide 8 - How to Press The Points Often the point is indicated by some degree of soreness upon pressure. If there is extreme (or increasing) sensitivity or pain, gradually decrease the pressure until a balance is achieved between pain and pleasure. – You should find that the initial pain you feel from the finger pressure is simultaneously relieving the arthritic pain. When you hold the point long enough, the pain will diminish, indicating that the acupressure is working. After repeated sessions with different depths of pressure, you will begin to feel a pulse at the arthritic pain sites; this is a good sign—it means increased circulation. Try to pay attention to the type of pulse you feel. If it’s very light and faint, hold the point even longer until you feel the pulse grow fuller and deeper. If the pulse is throbbing, continue to hold the point until you feel the pulse become more regular.
  • Slide 9 - How to Use Acupressure to Relieve Pain Try to find a comfortable sitting or position, hold the painful joints and nearby acupressure points for at least three minutes, breathing deeply into your abdomen; the breathing helps the points release and enables healing energy to circulate into your arthritic joints and throughout your whole body. Relaxation and feeling of well-being will emerge the more you practice self-acupressure as a daily routine. One way to easily find the exact location of an acupressure point is to firmly massage the area where you have pain. Inflammation, tension, or pain often centers on these points.
