Stress is one of the inevitable benefits of life. Nobody likes stress; There is no button that stops the stress when pressed on it… Or is there one? If you believe the alternative healing technique called Acubacia, what happens when pressure is applied to certain parts of the body.
Research shows that acubasia can effectively treat health problems such as nausea, pain, headaches and stress. While skeptics are asking questions about the science behind this alternative practice – a valid, placebo effect rather than a physiological response – many say that the method, rooted in Chinese tradition, improves the quality of life. There are several pressure points on the body that are specifically associated with stress. Just apply pressure, massage each point, relax your body and repeat as needed.
1- He Gu
Determine the highest muscle area where you connect your thumb and index fingers and massage for 4-5 seconds. This pressure point is used in the treatment of stress, head, tooth, face and neck pain.
2- Jian Jing
Tighten your shoulder muscle with your thumb and index fingers and stimulate the point for 4-5 seconds. This point is often used for stress, headache, tooth, face and neck pain.
3- Tai Chong
This pressure point is used to treat stress, back pain, high blood pressure, menstrual cramps, limb pain, insomnia and anxiety. Apply pressure two fingers above where the skin of the big toe and the next toe meet.
4- Feng Chi
Using your thumb, follow your ear bone along the groove where your neck muscles meet your skull and apply pressure. This acubacia technique is recommended for symptoms of stress, headaches, migraine, clouding of eyes, fatigue, low energy, and common cold.
5- Zu San Li
In traditional Chinese literature, this point is associated with improved health and longevity. It is also frequently used for digestive ailments, nausea, vomiting, stress and fatigue.
