How to Apply Pressure:

Firm pressure is the most fundamental technique. Use thumbs, fingers,


palms, the side of the hand, or knuckles to apply steady, stationary pressure.
To relax an area or relieve pain, apply pressure gradually and hold without
any movement for several minutes at a time. You can Use prolonged finger
pressure directly on the point; gradual, steady, penetrating pressure for
approximately three minutes is ideal. Each point will feel somewhat different
when you press it; some points feel tense, while others are often sore or
ache when pressed. How much pressure to apply to any point depends on
how fit you are. A general guideline to follow is that the pressure should be
firm enough so that it hurts a little. The more developed the muscles are, the
more pressure you should apply. If you feel extreme sensitivity or pain,
gradually decrease the pressure until you find a balance between pain and
pleasure. Do not continue to press a point that is excruciatingly painful.
Usually, however, if you firmly hold the point long enough (up to 2 minutes
using the middle finger with your index and ring fingers on either side as
support), the pain will diminish. Note that sometimes when you hold a point,
you'll feel pain in another part of your body. This phenomenon is called
referred pain and indicates that those areas are related.
It's important to drink plenty of warm water after the massage, to help clear
away toxic substances in our body .
Caution: If you have a serious illness , or life-threatening illness such as
heart disease, or cancer, please consult with your physician before practicing
Acupressure.
