Acupressure has been around in this world for an unknown number of years now. It is a science that has been exists in different parts of the world for many years, but as of today, it exists mainly in Asian countries like India, China, Japan, and Korea.
Acupressure is an ancient healing art developed in Asia over 5,000 years ago. It is a branch of traditional Chinese medicine which emphasizes preventing illness, dealing with underlying causes in depth and treating the whole person. An acupressurist works with the same points used in acupuncture - called acupoints - stimulating these healing sites with finger pressure, rather than inserting fine needles.
Acupressure uses the power and sensitivity of human touch to eliminate stress, relieve pain and alleviate acute and chronic conditions. It is a science that deals with the human body and the flow of natural energy within the body. It is a science, and there is nothing supernatural or magical about acupressure. This medical science is practiced with the use of only one human tool: the thumb. Pressure is applied on different 'pressure points' on the body, stimulating the corresponding glands of the body.
Acupressure once was a very common science that everybody used to treat medical problems, but with the invasion of western medicine and fast working pills, a vast majority of the people switched from acupressure to allopathy. Today, very few people in the world use this science as a source of curing medical problems.
