Acupressure and Reflexology have been used for centuries to relieve pain and induce relaxation.
What is Acupressure?
Acupressure and Reflexology therapies have been used by Eastern medical practitioners for centuries. They discovered that applying pressure to one part of the body could reduce pain and even induce anesthesia in another part. Millions of people have found relief from pain through acupuncture and acupressure.
With over 7200 nerve receptors, the sole of the human foot is a goldmine of pressure points and is the focus of Reflexology/Acupressure practitioners. As pressure is placed on specifically mapped nerve endings, impulses travel to the central nervous system in just seconds. The brain responds to the impulse by increasing blood flow and oxygenation to the organ zone related to that pressure point. It is believed that this stimulation detoxifies organs and improves their function. This specifically applied pressure can signal the release of our natural analgesics – such as endorphins, which are the body’s own pain killers/mood elevators.
Through the massage of the foot acupoints, most people feel increased relaxation, comfort, and energy levels. Reduced stress and increased circulation are additional benefits.
A blend of “acupuncture” and “pressure” is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) technique related to acupuncture. In acupressure physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points by the hand, elbow, or with various devices. Reviews of acupressure clinical trials have been conducted by the Cochrane Collaboration and Bandolier according to the protocols of evidence-based medicine; for most conditions they have concluded a lack of effectiveness or lack of well-conducted clinical trials.
Traditional Chinese medicine’s acupuncture theory predates use of the scientific method, and has received various criticisms based on scientific thinking. There is no known anatomical or histological basis for the existence of acupuncture points or meridians.Acupuncturists tend to perceive TCM concepts in functional rather than structural terms, i.e. as being useful in guiding evaluation and care of patients. Neuroimaging research suggests that certain acupuncture points have distinct effects that are not otherwise predictable anatomically.
