Your body has some pressure points that when stimulated and massaged, can help to relieve stress and other health problems.
Stress has and will affect us all at some point or many points in our life. For some it’s where to go on holiday next, for others, it’s how they will pay their rent this month. Symptoms of stress can include chest pains, depression, inability to sleep, nausea and irritability to name but a few. For some medicating is the only way to relieve these symptoms. If only there was a button to turn it off…if you are a believer and fan of acupressure and other alternative medicines then there is a way to control and relieve stress by connecting pressure to certain areas of the body.
A number of high profiled studies have concluded that if you apply pressure to the correct areas of the body it can help with some health conditions. These health conditions that would benefit from acupressure are headaches, nausea and of course stress. This process of applying pressure to the pressure points of the body goes back to Chinese medicine.
If we look at the health condition that is stress, there are a number of areas on the body that can be massaged and stimulated to help alleviate the often-crippling symptoms of stress.
Below are some pressure points located around the body that when stimulated and massaged, can help to relieve stress and other health problems.
