Lack of blood & oxygen in infected area is THE CAUSE OF ALL PAIN




Do You know Acupressure?

Acupressure is an ancient healing art using the fingers and other parts of the body to skillfully press key points, which stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. When these trigger points are pressed, they release muscular tension, and promote circulation of blood, and the body's life force energy to aid healing. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same pressure points and meridians, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses gentle to firm pressure and integrates bodywork therapies, therapeutic touch, somatic work, healing imagery, energy psychology, and massage therapy techniques. It is one of the oldest & yet most commonly used medical procedures in the world. Acupressure is based on the core principle that there is energy called Chi or Qi flowing through one’s body & mind along pathways called Meridians. The overall well being requires that the individuals energy flow freely through out the body & mind. Theoretically, the blockage of Chi or Qi at any point may result in an illness. In order to restore health, focussed acupressure is applied along the meridians to unblock the energy flow.

At Sai Alpha, acupressure points are applied, along with a combination of heating effect of far infrared light with the help of infrared acupressure massagers. These massagers have proven to be much more effective than by giving acupressure point  alone. The acupressure points are applied in such a way so as to cover the whole spinal cord along with stomach.

How it works:

There are 365 acupuncture points on our body. Most of these points lie along & near the spine, comprising the 12 primary Meridian pathways, crucial for the well being of one’s health. The acupressure treatment is carried out with PRESSURE points, and NOT NEEDLES. The science of acupressure therapy is based on a theory that is totally different from allopathy (i.e. western medicine). The acupresure point theory states that the human body has some "imaginary meridians" that carry energy throughout the body. These meridians start at the fingertips, connect to the brain, and then connect to the organ associated with the specific meridian. The names of these meridians specify the organ associated with them as is clear from the "acupressure point chart" given below. For example, the lung meridian is connected to the lungs via the nervous system. Theoretically, a lung problem arises if there is an obstruction in the lung meridian that slows down the flow of energy. If somehow the obstruction is removed or dissolved, the energy flow becomes regular and the lungs start functioning well. How is the obstruction removed? The answer to this question defines the basic concept of acupressure.

Usually, an analogy of a water pipe makes this concept easier to understand and visualize. A stone in a pipe that carries water lowers the rate at which the water flows through the pipe. If the- pipe is pinched right before the area where the stone is located and the water is allowed to build up, the potential energy of the water that is stopped from flowing rises. When the water that has high potential energy is freed by releasing the pinch, water flows faster than normal, pushing the obstruction alone, with it. The obstruction is thus removed from the area and enables the water to resume its flow. This is exactly the way acupressure works. The theory states that obstruction in meridians cause the energy to flow slower which results in a malfunction or even dysfunction in the organ that is associated with the meridian. The acupressure therapy technique is used to remove the obstruction so that energy can flow with regularity and the organ can be made to resume its normal function.

One interesting theory of acupressure therapy states that it is not necessarily the organ that relates to the system the cause of the problem. Refer to NERVOUS SYSTEM CHART. It is the "root cause" that is the main cause of the disease/malfunction and if the root problem is cured, the external problem is cured as well. This can be explained in an easier way by using, an example. Suppose a person is suffering from asthma. An allopathic doctor would prescribe a medicine or steroid that would give rest to the lungs and relieve the symptoms because an allopathic thinks that the cause for asthma problems is the lungs. An acupressurist on the other hand, will try to find the root cause i.e. the reason why the lungs are malfunctioning. An acupressurist would read the whole body (please see acupressure point chart) by reading energy pulses located on the arms to diagnose the root cause and once the root cause is diagnosed, the doctor will give acupressure points to cure that specific problem, not asthma. A root cause could be anything like poor digestion, excessive heat, bad circulation, depression, or bad hormones. A root cause could even be just the organ that is giving the problem. So a person with asthma could have weak lungs that are the root cause of the problem. There have been cases where people with totally healthy lungs suffer from asthma because of other problems like bad stomach, weak circulation, or even bad hormones, and allopathic doctors give them steroids like cortisone to "cure the weak lungs".
