How long does it take to do the entire Acupressure work routine?The entire Acupressure routine can take as little as 10 minutes or as long as you want. Once people start using Acupressure on themselves they find it Feels Really Good. When is the last time you asked someone who is rubbing your shoulders to stop. Never right. Same thing with this Acupressure system. Once you start you won’t want to stop.
My back is stiff when I get out of bed in the morning. Will Acupressure help?Yes, Acupressure is very effective for any type of muscle stiffness. Once you apply these Acupressure techniques you will increase circulation to your back muscles and will notice immediately improvement in your ability to do normal activities such as picking up the morning paper, or tying your shoes. You can even use the techniques before you get out of bed.
My shoulders are knotted up from sitting at the computer. Will this help?Yes it will. Muscle tightness is a result from sitting in the same position, doing the same thing, all day long. Because the body mechanics involved with working on a computer are what they are, neck and shoulder tensions is a common result.
Left untreated, tension develops into spasms, spasms into pain and limited range of motion, and then into chronic conditions such as osteo–arthritis, pinched nerves, displaced vertebrae, herniated discs of your spine, and headaches. Acupressure will help reverse this progression.
Is Acupressure better than stretching exercises to warm up for physical exercise?Acupressure is far more effective for warming up and relaxing muscles than is stretching.
To understand this, think about why we call it “Warming up”. When things get warm they become looser and more flexible. Solids are less brittle and bend more easily, liquids flow more smoothly, and tight spots expand. Our muscle exhibit the same characteristics. When they are “Warmed up” from Acupressure they are less likely to become injured and are more responsive to the demands we place on them.
In flexibility studies conducted at various health clinics and on various age groups, standard flexibility measurements were taken before and after applying Acupressure techniques. Results show an impressive increase in flexibility between 9 and 31 percent after applying these techniques for the first time.
