Acupressure Daily Exercise

In today's fast pace life stress can accumulate in our bodies, causing a number of health problems not to mention tension and anxieties. A simple daily acupressure exercise can do wonders!

The healing benefits of acupressure involve:As tension is released, you’ll not only feel good physically, but you will also feel better emotionally and mentally. When your body relaxes, your mind relaxes as well - leading to mental clarity, a healthier emotional and physical energy all which helps to counteract the daily pressures in life.

Acupressure is performed by applying steady but firm pressure on specific points (meridian points) along the body. If you prefer, you can rub on the acupressure point briskly to stimulate them rather than just applying pressure. Acupressure uses the same principle (identical meridian points) as acupuncture and is the older of the two.

Increasing your energy with acupressure
Ok, so chances are that you exercise a few times a week to keep your muscles and circulatory system in shape. But how do you keep your energy system in shape? How do you keep your chi (healing energy) flowing? With an acupressure daily workout, of course!

Like a regular workout this routine is best done at least three days a week. But if you can do it everyday or even twice a day that great! It doesn’t take long – just about five minutes. Begin your workout by sitting in a chair in a comfortable position with your spine straight. Then:By using the above acupressure points regularly along with balancing your activities and practicing deep breathing you can counteract stresses, prevent fatigue, boost your immune system and increase your energy level. Deep breathing exercises used with acupressure can greatly increase your energy and boost your immune system.
