Acupressure

Though both acupressure and acupuncture are similar, there are some key differences.

Let’s talk about how they’re the same first. Both involve applying stimulation to key points along meridians in your body to help balance energy.

Acupressure involves applying precise pressure to these points, while acupuncture stimulates these points by applying fine acupuncture needles.

Shiatsu and reflexology also apply pressure to the body to encourage its innate healing ability, but they work through different modalities. Certainly they can be used in conjunction with acupressure, but I’m not an expert in these practices.

Self-acupressure is the practice of applying precise pressure to specific points along the body to encourage balance and release.

Self-acupressure is good for an entire host of symptoms ranging from acid reflux to sadness and grief. You can find a growing list of symptoms self-acupressure can help with below.

When done properly, self-acupressure is very safe and can be performed whenever needed.

I always suggest that anyone taking on a new health practice consult with their physician, especially those who are pregnant or who are trying to become pregnant

The short answer is, it depends. You can feel relief immediately for simple aches and pains, but if you’re working on a chronic sickness, it can take more time to work through.

Periods

Absolutely. In fact, acupressure helped me deal with the symptoms of my cycle.

Migraines, constipation, diarrhea, menstrual cramps, lower back pain, and lack of energy can all be relieved with self-acupressure.

As a practice, self-acupressure helps you become more present and tap into what your body feels at the moment. This can be especially helpful during your period, which can inspire intuitive messages for us and empower us to take action.
