What is Acupressure?
Acupressure is a unique science to produce healing effects on the internal organs of the body through applying pressure on meridian points. It is believed that eastern therapists evolved this science several centuries ago with a view to maintaining health and curing common ailments.
There is the description of about 1000 acupressure points on the body in the various Chinese and Japanese charts. However, around 100 points are of importance for common ailments.
Acupressure can be called “acupuncture without needles”. In acupuncture, the points are stimulated with needles, whereas in acupressure, the points are stimulated by pressing them with fingers or thumbs. Pressure can also be given on acupressure points by a pointer called jimmy.

Diagnosis of a diseases through acupressure and pulse diagnosis?
When any organ of the body is diseased, the points corresponding to that organ become tender or sensitive. If some point hurts on pressing, it can be said that there is something wrong with the organ connected with that point. Sometimes in the initial stage of a disease, any outward symptoms are not visible; only some weakness is experienced. Nothing uncommon is found even after getting stool, urine and blood tested. Generally doctors can diagnose the disease through various tests only after its symptoms arise. But in acupressure, even in the initial stage of a disease, the diagnosis of the disease is possible with the help of painful points. By pressing the points connected with various systems of the body or organs, one can know the part of the body which is likely to occur in near future. This leads to taking acupressure treatment instantly. The patient is advised not to attempt to diagnose his own disease.

Acupressure has a completely curative effect on some diseases.
