Acupressure comes from the words “acupunctuer “and “pressure”. It is the custom carried out on Chinese medicine. It is a technique based on the lines of acupuncture. It actualy involves applying physical pressure by hand, elbow, nucles or with the aid of various devices on different acupuncture points on the surface of the body. Frakly speeking there is no scientific consensus over whether or not evidence supports the efficacy of acupressure. Reviews of existing clinical trials are being conducted and according to the protocols of evidence-based medicine, most conditions have concluded a lack of effectiveness or it could be lack of well-conducted clinical trials.Which ever Acupoints used in treatment may not always be in the same area of the body as the targeted symptoms.
East Asian countries in the martial arts make profound use of acupressure for self-defense and health purposes. The acupressure point technique or combinations of acupressure point techniques is said to be used to manipulate or incapacitate an opponent. At the same time these martial artists regularly massage their own acupressure points thereby enhance their circulation and flexibility and keeping the points “soft” or less vulnerable to an attack. An acupressure wristband is meant to relieve the symptoms of motion sickness and other forms of nausea. The band provides pressure to the P6 acupuncture point. This point is extensively examined.The use of P6 is for nausea and vomiting, and found it to be effective for reducing post-operative nausea, but not vomiting. The review included other means of stimulating P6, including acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, transcutaneous nerve stimulation, laser stimulation, acustimulation device and acupressure. P6 acupressure point in two different studies showed 52% of patients with having a success while compared with 75% with not.
But the review says that although less numbered of people are benifitted the one those are cured have long term benefit for low back pain. But almost more than 75 percent of people all over the world rthink that the acupresure is much more helpful than any other medication and people seem to think that acupressure or pressure point massage techniques provide more relief than classic massage, although more research is needed to confirm this.
