What is acupressure

Acupressure is a part of traditional Chinese medicine also known under other names as digitopression, digitopressure and digitopuncture. It is a technique of stimulation of acupuncture points that are pressed with the help of fingers. It is known that it first responds to the symptoms by alleviating the effects of the disease, but it must be borne in mind that it is not sufficient to cure the cause itself.

Acupressure, as part of the traditional way of life, is based on the energetic concept of life and health according to which the principle that every man has good health as long as energy can flow freely in his body is valid.

However, when energy is impaired, disturbances occur in the body and the person may become ill. The advantage of acupressure is that it is easy to perform, which is why many experts believe that it is not sufficient to solve the problem on its own.


It can be performed at any time and at any place, because it does not require special equipment. It was mentioned earlier that it is not enough to solve the problem, it can alleviate it, but for complete recovery it must be combined with homeopathy or phytotherapy.

Acupressure helps cure more of it. First, it reduces all analgesics that are drunk to relieve pain. It is she who helps with pain relief. Many people apply it to low back pain, head, nape, and muscles and ligaments.

Many experts have agreed that it is good for treating the effects of trauma, indigestion and breathing, with vomiting, bloating and nausea. Allergies and palliative care should not be left out where it is extremely beneficial.


Regular use has been shown to help boost the immune system and overall improve overall health. It should be known that during the course of treatment the person may feel immediate pain at the point being treated.

This is normal and also every person can feel a temporary deterioration after the procedure, but only at the beginning. Each expert advises eating at least an hour and a half before treatment.
