The use of acupressure to boost immune system and fight candida
Acupressure is an ancient therapy that falls under the category of holistic medicine. Originating in Chinese medicine, acupressure involves the use of fingers or a special blunt instrument to press key points on the surface of the skin, stimulating the body's natural healing abilities. Pressure to these specific points can release tension as well as promote the blood and energy flow throughout the body to vital organs, glands and tissues. Acupressure therapy provides rejuvenation and healing and can benefit the immune system.
Although it is closely related to acupuncture, acupressure can actually be used for self-treatment, because there are no special tools or needles required. Performing acupressure on one's body is especially effective for releasing tension in the body and treating migraines and other body pains.
A popular choice for people utilizing holistic medicine and alternative treatments, acupressure is also receiving attention from more traditional Western medical doctors who are prescribing it as a supplement to their treatments. Especially impressive is acupressure's ability to boost immune systems in people struggling with chronic illness and disease.
Acupressure has also provided symptom relief and even healing in the following conditions:
Â Addictionsâ¬"drug, alcohol, food, sex, etc.
Â Body and back pain
Â Circulatory problems
Â Depression, anxiety and other emotional and mental problems
Â Skin problems, and more.
Acupressure therapy has the advantage of being non-invasive and drug-free, which means patients can avoid pharmaceutical side effects and the high costs of more traditional Western medical treatments. Because acupressure is a form of holistic medicine, the focus is on curing the disease or illness at the source, rather than only treating symptoms.
