How Does Acupressure Work?Even amongst the best “Scientific” minds no one knows how an aspirin works. They know how aspirin affects the body and what symptoms it will help alleviate, but no one knows the mechanism by which it functions. The same is true with Acupressure.
From studies done by Western scientists we know that the Acupressure points can be measured electrically. Scientists have also shown that acupuncture and Acupressure produces higher levels of important bio–chemicals. Other studies show that Acupressure can increase blood flow in even the deepest body tissues.
Some scientists have shown that electrically active fascia, the tissues that wrap and interconnect the whole body, could be the location of a sensitive communications network, the basis for which acupuncture and Acupressure work. In terms of using Acupressure for the purposes of relaxing muscles, it works by increasing the blood flow to muscle tissue surrounding the Acupressure point. Increased blood flow naturally warms the muscles between 2 to 3 degrees. Increased muscle temperature allows the muscle to become more relaxed and flexible.
