China is famous for the traditional natural remedies like acupuncture and acupressure. The Western medicine has also started using these natural remedies because all the benefits and health improvements that they offer were immediately noticed.
Maybe for some reason the acupuncture has been praised more than the acupressure, but still many claim that the acupressure is as effective as the acupuncture.
These natural remedies have appeared as a result of the discovery of the “acupressure points” by the Chinese medicine. The “acupressure points” are believed to be channels in our bodies, also known as meridians. Theoretically, when these points are pressed they improve the blood flow in our bodies.
This raises the amount of oxygen delivered throughout the body and this is the point when healing begins.
The following video presents a tutorial about an acupressure massage which is known as San Yin Jiao (SP6), used for relieving stress and promoting good night sleep. What is more, San Yin Jiao (SP6) is an acupressure point which is also believed to offer help with: distention of the abdomen, poor digestion, urinary dysfunction, pain caused by menstrual disorders and lower limb problems.Another benefit of stimulating this point is cleansing and cleaning the kidney and spleen.
However, there are some situations when this massage should not be used. For instance, stimulating Sin Yin Jiao is not recommended during pregnancy because it can bring on labor. On the other hand, Sin Yin Jiao can help in pain relief during labor, and it has also been used for women who struggle with infidelity.
Watch the video below that will teach you how the acupressure actually works and how to locate the exact point of San Yin Jiao. For this massage to be effective it is recommended to be repeated for 2 minutes on each leg and the insomnia and stress will disappear forever.
