Acupressure Massage and Pressure Point Information deals with Therapy, Pain Relief of all sorts, including headache, muscular and mental Stress -
 in relation to Meridians and Chi flow.

Friendly advice to surfers : This site has no claim to omniscience or even to simple science. Acupressure, often misspelled as accupressure or accupressure massage,  is a non-certified field of activities that vary considerably in their application. Reference will be made hereafter to various sources of information. 

Acupressure is a preventive treatment, is non invasive technique- you do not inject or insert anything inside the body. These treatments have no side effect and are extremely useful as supportive or adjunct therapy. WHO endorses this system of healing and is now opening a separate cell for acupressure research and development.

What is Accupressure?

Accupressure is an ancient Chinese technique based on the principles of accupuncture, and involves the use of finger pressure (without the needles) on specific points along the body. It is is a way of accessing and releasing blocked or congested energy centres in the body. Chinese cultures believe the points to be junctures of meridian pathways that carry energy called chi. Western scientists have also mapped out and proven the existence of these points using electrical devices.

Accupressure massage therapy stimulates and activates the body’s own energies to help fight illness and restore harmony. Some of the Acupressure points are significant as they relate to a specific part of the body while others are more general in their effect. Various ailments such as tension and stress, aches and pains, arthritis or menstrual cramps can be elleviated. Accupressure can also be used for general preventative health care.

What is the Purpose of Accupressure?

The purpose of Accupressure is to stimulate the body's own recuperative powers by stimulating the various points on the body. The stimulation removes energy blockages by diffusing the toxic build up that accumulates in the muscle tissue. The accumulation of toxins causes stiffness throughout the body. Stiffness in muscles puts abnormal pressure on nerves, and blood and lymph vessels. The pressure on blood and lymph vessels affect both skeletal systems and internal organ functioning.

Since this technique believes accumulation of foreign material to be the chief cause of body ailments, the application of the various pressures is meant to remove these foreign material and restore normal blood supply. 
- The skin gets a natural, healthy glow.
- Normal blood flow is restored to nourish the body organs.
- It brings flexibility in the muscular tissues.
It strengthens the bone.
Revitalises  the nervous system.
- Acupressure helps to regulate the secretion of the endocrine 
- Acupressure technique can also activate the functions of the 
  internal organs.
- It reactivates the body, internal resistance against the assaults 
  of outside germs or virus.

How is Accupressure Performed?

Accupressure is usually given in a similar fashion to traditional massage. Points on the body are massaged using finger or thumb, and sometimes a blunt object, in a fairly rapid circular motion with a medium pressure. Massages last between 5 and 15 minutes. Some of the most common techniques are: Rubbing, Kneading, Percussion and Vibration. Fingers, hands, elbows, knees and feet are often used to massage other parts of the body.

Accupressure can be performed sitting, standing or lying down.

Accupressure can help alleviate:

Pain, headaches, migraines, insomnia, depression, toothache, dizziness, menstrual pain, digestive disorders including diarrhea and constipation, nausea, morning sickness, motion sickness, stress and tiredness.

In all cases, such massage techniques are employed in collaboration with other appropriate medical care.


Needles or Fingers
As you can see from the various definitions found on Internet, three main tendencies can be encountered in the exercise of acupressure.

Many follow the theory that acupressure, despite the precise meaning of that particular word, consists in the pressure of fingers on precise spots of the body.

Others maintain the principle of pressure by needles, although these have to be blunt so as not to penetrate the skin (non-invasive).

Still others recommend bars, balls or triggers, to mention but a few devices offered under the heading "acupressure".

Within these main categories, you will find the advocates of stimulation made on the patient by a third person (a professional practitioner, an acupressurist), but more often the emphasis is on the personal responsibility for one’s health, putting the relief of minor discomforts into the patient’s own hands. 

Another important difference of appreciation is the knowledge of the meridians and the various neuralgic points that is the proper of acupuncturists and reflexotherapists, but which is of secondary importance for acupressure treatment by zones (Head’s zones).

Acupressure in its precise meaning has been evidenced at the end of the last century by the Londoner neurologist Sir Henry Head. He discovered the relation between skin zones and inner organs. A pain acting on an sick organ is felt at the corresponding skin segment rather than at the organ itself. Hence the expression of Head’s zones (in German : Headsche Zonen). Russian researchers, mainly Prof. I. Kuznetsov, applied Head’s theory and carried out widespread clinical tests to prove that stimulation by acupressure (use of a bed of needles on a zone, without penetration) soothed muscular, articular and vertebral pains, normalized the activity of the cardio-vascular, repiratory, nervous and digestive systems, relieved from headache and sleeplessness, diminished tiredness and improved the general feeling of well-being.

When applying acupressure on a zone, it is not necessary, as in acupuncture or reflexotherapy, to know the exact Yin and Yang points or the meridians. It can therefore be self-administrated by patients, avoiding expensive consultations and thereby contributing to reduce the cost of health-management .  Stimulation by acupressure on zones of reaction is never a medical act. It does not pretend to heal by itself, but it favours the mechanism of selfregeneration of the organism. 


Accupressure Definations
There are only few advocates of the non-invasive needle technique. One of them is the A-Q-PRESSOR of russian origin.  

From Gail Sweet :
"Acupressure is an ancient Asian healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin and thus stimulate the body's immune system to self heal. When stimulated, these points relieve muscular tension, and promote the release of endorphins -- neurochemicals that relieve pain. Acupressure uses the same points and meridians (patterns of energy flow) as acupuncture, but instead of needles, treats with gentle, firm pressure of fingers and hands. With acupressure, the client may remain fully clothed, and suffer no side effects from drugs, while experiencing a safe treatment. It is an excellent way to balance the body and maintain good health by reducing tension, increasing circulation and strengthening the body's resistance to illness. "

From the James Roy Holliday III guide to acupressure (a website with a few hundred nice illustrations):
"Acupressure and acupuncture have been used in the Far East for thousands of years to treat disease, but this poorly understood science has only gained wider acceptance in the West in recent times. Chinese medicine emphasizes personal responsibility for one's health, unlike much of Western medicine. "

" The concepts of internal and external environment are very important to the philosophy of oriental medicine. The human body, it is believed, encloses an ongoing flow of bioenergy or life-force called "chi." This energy flows along specific pathways called "meridians," and controls the functioning of all of the organs. In a healthy individual, this flow maintains a constant balance with itself and the external environment. When external or internal events occur which disturb this balance, disease ensues. Along the meridians are a large number of controlling nerve endings, or "acupoints" which act as valves for the flow of chi. The stimulation of these points, properly performed, acts to restore balance to the internal environment. "

From Australia (
"Acupressure is an ancient Chinese total body treatment, given through clothing on pressure points, to stimulate the flow of energy and improve circulation throughout the body. Like its Japanese equivalent shiatsu, acupressure requires no needles relying instead on the thumbs, palms, heels of the hands and elbows, (sometimes knees and feet) to apply held pressure on vital points on the body. Along with pressure point treatment, gentle stretching and corrective exercises are also used."

Karen Crogan:
Acupressure is a form of massage that is performed a lot like an acupuncture session without needles. The practitioner uses finger pressure to stimulate specific acupuncture point on meridians to relieve symptoms."

From Oriental Medicine Journal:
"Obstetrics and Acupressure" by Pamela Wallach. A very interesting site. (Excerpts....I offer the following cases as illustrative of what I have done using simple Chinese medicine techniques even, at times, in the less than welcoming environment of a hospital where only acupressure can be used...)

Acupressure Diet Trick

"The Chinese use this acupressure technique when they're dieting...and look how slim most of them are! Next time you're hungry, squeeze your earlobes for one minute. At the very least, it will keep your hands busy until the craving passes."

From the Holistic Glossary:
"Acupressure - Based on the principles of acupuncture, this ancient Chinese technique involves the use of finger pressure (rather than needles) on specific points along the body to treat ailments such as tension and stress, aches and pains, or arthritis. The system is also used for general preventive health care."

Sasha Mobley, Massage Therapist, stated on his former website:
" Acupressure is the direct, focused application of pressure on a "point" (a center of energy on the one of the "meridians" of the body). The use of acupressure has two benefits. The first benefit is that it releases the tension in muscle fibers in much the same way the short focused strokes of Deep Tissue do. By applying focused pressure, the muscle is compressed much like a sponge and blood is sent rushing into the tissue from its release. Also, it clears the blockage of energy in the meridian, promoting health in several ways above and beyond the relaxation of the muscle tissue."

From Healnet:
" Acupressure, a type of body work based on the same concept as ACUPUNCTURE. Rather than inserting needles into the body for treatment acupressure uses pressure applied from the finger tip or Knuckle or from a blunt tip instrument to stimulate specific points on the acupuncture meridians (Energy Channels) on the patients body. "

" High Touch Acupressure with its ancient oriental roots is truly a magnificent healing art for the modern western world. It belongs in the hands of the most sophisticated healing artists, as well as the layman. It is a birth right given to every person who seeks health, balance, and consciousness. Because of its gentle and unobtrusive nature it surpasses the simpler forms of energy therapies. The treatments follow the ancient principles of oriental energy therapy, sharing many of the same concepts upon which acupuncture is based. High Touch, however, utilizes the life force that emanates from our fingertips, which, when applied with a very gentle but penetrating touch, supports rather than pushes the natural flow of the body's energy. High Touch is a gentle laying of the hands on certain points on the fully clothed body to help release blockages in
the body's energy flows. The body's energy system maintains the balance of the flow of the life force to every cell and every function of the human experience; body, mind, and spirit. "





 Common points to all definitions

Over and above their reference to Chinese tradition, the definitions of the word "acupressure" have various understandings in common.

Sensitivity of the skin

Acupressure acts on the skin only. The theory of a forerunner of modern acupressure is cited as follows in the Encyclopedia Britannica:

"A distinction between the discriminatory (epicritic) and emotional (protopathic) features of sensations was made by Sir Henry Head (1861-1940), a British neurologist, who noted, for example, that after a sensory nerve from the skin had been cut, the first sensations to recover as the nerve healed appeared to be diffuse, poorly localized, and extremely unpleasant. He theorized that this initial lack of sharp discrimination associated with unpleasant experience reflected the properties of a primitive protopathic (emotional) neural system which regenerated first. He held that this system subserves pain and the extremes of temperature and pressure sensation usually associated with an affective (emotional) tone. Because recovery of fine tactual discrimination,
sensitivity to lightly graded stimuli, and the ability to localize points touched on the skin returned later, Head posited the existence of another discriminatory system." 

Surface treatment is the main point

None of the definitions adventures into the skin. Whether applied by fingers, triggers, needlebeds, rollers, balls or bars, the acupressure methods keep clear from invasion of any sort as compared to acupuncture. The paramount advantage of this non-invasion is the exclusion of the danger of infection. As long as the instruments used (fingers, needlebeds etc.) are hygienically clean, manipulation is not more perilous than shaking somebody’s hand.

No absorption of chemicals

Acupressure at large is meant to replace chemical influence on the body. This alone is already a big progress against the bulimia of medicaments, be they prescription or non-prescription drugs.

Self care

Practitioners certainly have a right to exercise their profession, and in many cases their help is essential. It has become a bad habit of modern times to resort for even minor discomforts to health-professionals. Acupressure, when well used, can easily relieve from occasional pain or strain, thereby avoiding that one has to disturb a medical officer for a triviality. In many instances of life one is alone to decide what intuitive steps to undertake: at work, in traffic, in sport. The same basic self-responsibility should govern our relation with health. Acupressure is one of the ways to go in that direction.


75% of illness is said to be stress-related. This can be anything from general headache, neck and shoulder tension, cold, respiratory problems etc. Reducing stress is the best preventive measure one can take. All definitions of acupressure point into that direction.

Preventive health-care

We are all aware of the importance of preventative health care -- "A stitch in time saves nine". Acupressure adepts find they are less susceptible to aching, as they can start diminishing pain immediately upon its occurrence. Preventative health care can save a great deal of time, money and frustration!

Improved circulation

We all know that blood carries vital nutrients through the body, and also carries away toxins and waste products. One of the symptoms of a stressful life is a decrease in blood circulation. An improvement in circulation will allow the body to receive the nutrients carried in blood, and also eliminate the waste products more effectively. This is a pure acupressure attribute.

These common points demonstrate clearly that acupressure, be it with or without needles, is one of the foremost catalyzers towards holism: a body without pain coupled to an unstressed and equilibrated mind.


Location of The Reflex Points

Elbow Points I : - Located at the depression of the end of the fold which appears when the elbow is bent 900 and rasied to the horizontal position

Elbow Points 2 : - Located in the elbow fold, on the radial side of the biceps. The points is on the elbow crease at the outside (lateral) portion of the tendon.

Elbow Point 3 : - Located by bending the elbow part away and locating the biceps tendon, which is the thick bend you feel in the middle of the front of the elbow. The point lies under the elbow crease at the inside (medial) portion of the tendon.

Elbow Point 4 : - Located at the indentation near the inside elbow fold next to the tendon on the inside of the upper arm; the end of the creases is where the elbow point is located.

Elbow Point 5 : - Located by bending the elbow and feeling for the depression two finger breadths above the point of the elbow on the backside. The point is located at the centre of the depression.

Back Point I : - Exact location is between second and third lumbar vertebrae, just behind navel. To make their location easy, remember that these points arelocated on each side of the spinal column, each point lying about two finger breadths to the side of the middle of the spinal column. Points are located at the same level as the bottom of the rib cage.

Back Point 2 : - Located by bending neck slightly and noting prominent vertebral bone protruding at the base of the neck. Counting it as one, count down five vertebral spines (spines to the backbone). In between the fifth and sixth spine and two fingerbreadths to each side of the centre of the backbone lies the points.

Back Point 3 : - Located beneath the tip of the tail bone, about a finger breadth below the dividing line of the buttocks.

Back Point 4 : - Located by staning slightly on tip toes and noting the depression formed at the sides of the buttocks. The points is located in the centre of the depression or ring.

Back Point 5 : - Located at the midpoint of the crease the lower end of the buttocks makes with the thigh. If using acupressure technique then apply greater pressure as this part is very tender. The basic, guideline in using this technique is: unless the site is unsually tender, deep strong pressure, rotating the finger when useful, is required.

 Wrist-hand Point I : - Located on the thumb side of the wrist just above the projecton of bone - just above the thumb side of the wrist. I can be found by placing the hands together with middle and first finger forming 'V' and both the hands are touching each other in over hand-touch style.

 Wrist-hand Point 2 : - Located on the back of the wrist a about the middle of the wrist at the flexion creases.

 Wrist-hand Point 3 : - Located on the first crease of the wrist towards small finger side when the fingers are fully stretched. Its exact location could be found at seven eighth of the width of the wrist from the thumb side.

 Wrist-hand Point 4 : - Located at the centre of the hand-wrist junction crease on the palmar side.

 Wrist-hand Point 5 : - it is located midway between the two bones of thumbs and index finger. One can find it by closing the thumb and the index finger. One can find it by closing the thumb and the forefinger together and notiching the little mound that forms at their junction mound. Alternatively, it can also be found by bending the thumb of the other hand over the web between the thumb and the index finger. It lies under the end of the thumb.

 Wrist-hand Point 6 : - Located under the thumb side of the index finger. One finger-breadth below the base of the finger at the mid point of the side of the hand.

Wrist-hand Point 7 : - It is located in the web between the little finger and the ring finger on the backside. The wrist-hand point 7 should be pressed at a 45o angle toward the hand, the point being approached from the top of thge hand.

 Wrist-hand Point 8 : - Located on the side of the hand one finger-breadth above the base of the little finger.

 Wrist-hand Point 9 : - Located under the side of the hand two finger-breadths above wrist point 8.

Wrist-hand Point 10 : - Located on the backside of the forearm three finger-breadths from the middle of the wrist crease.

Wrist-hand Point 11 : - Located on the palm side of the forearm three finger-breadhts from the middle f the wrist crease. Wrist-hand point 12 is located at the centre of the palm.

Knee Point I : - When you bend your knees almost 90o from the thigh, you can find its location at the depression at the lower outisde edge of the knee-cap.

Knee Point 2 : - It is located in the muscle that runs on the outside of the thigh, two inches up from the knee-cap. Make the person sit on a chair and bend his leg at a 90o angle. Measure two inches up from the top of the knee cap. The point is slightly outside of the leg.

Knee Point 3 : - You can locate it by bending the knee and finding the crease formed on the medial or inner aspect. The point is at the end of the crease.

Knee Point 4 : - Located on the back portion of the knee exactly at the mid-point of the crease.

Knee Point 5 : - Located at the top of the shinbone, on the inside of the leg. To make its location easier, place three fingers exactly below the protruded side-portion of the knee. To be precise, it is located at a level three finger-breadths below the lower level of the kneep cap at the intersection of an imaginary line travelling vertically along the middle of the side of the leg.

Knee Point 6 : - Make the patient sit and bend his leg at a 90o angle. Catch the centre of his knee-cap with the centre of your palm. The tip of your thumb will touch knee point 6, two inches above the knee-cap. In fact it is located at a level three finger-breadths above the upper broder of the knee-cap where and imaginary line travelling vertically up the middle of the inside of the thigh crosses that level.

Knee Point 7 : - Located in front of and below the head of the fibula, which is the rounded knob located near the middle of the outside aspect of the leg at a level about two finger - breadths below the lower level of the knee cap. The point itself is located in the depressed area in front of and below the fibula head.

Ankle-foot Point I : - Located in the centre of the ankle crease as one flexes his ankle.

Ankle-foot Point 2 : - Located directly in front of the lowest level of the medial malleolus or the middle ankle bone (the rounded bone protruding from the ankle on the inner aspect).

Ankle-foot Point 3 : - Located on finger tip below the medial malleolus or the middle ankle bone (the rounded bone protruding from the ankle on the inner aspect, or the 'Gutt' - as it is called in Hindi).

Ankle-foot Point 4 : - Located in the depression in the back of the medial malleolus (at the 'Gutta').

Ankle-foot Point 5 : - Located in the depression in the back of the lateral malleolus.

Of these ankle-foot points, point 3 has a greater use in the area of foot and ankle injuries, but ankle-foot point 4 wich lies opposite two ankle foot point 5 can be grasped ankle-foot point 5 (index finger on one and thumb on the other) and this area is not a tender area.

Ankle-foot Point 6 : - Located four finger-breadths above the medial malleolus or the inner rounded ankle bone at the middle of the inside aspect of the leg. Another easy way of locating this point is to flex the person's foot and put his four fingers on the inside of his leg with little finger resting on top of the anklebone and the other fingers going up the leg. The point exists where the four finger lies, behind the shinbone.

Shoulder Point I : - It is located on the outside of the should bone. Have the persons raise his bent elbow to an angle of 90o from the body. The indentation is easier to idenfity. It is located at the mid-point of the top of the outisde arm just below the end of the shoulder bone.

Shoulder Point 2 : - Located at the mid-point of the outside of the arm (upper arm) where the tip of the (upside down appearing) triangular deltoid muscle is.

Should Point 3 : - Located on the back of the shouler above the armpit, in the soft tissue just below the bony top of the shoulder.

Shoulder Point 4 : - Located on an intaginary line drawn from the tip of the shoulder to a point lying over the middle of the base of the back of the neck. The point is one third along that line from the shoulder.

Shoulder Point 5 : - Located on an imaginary line drawn from the tip of the shoulder to a point lying over the middle of the base of the back of the neck. The point is on the mid point of that line.

Should Point 6 : - Located on an imaginary line drawn from the tip of the shoulder to a point lying over the middle of the base of the neck. The point is one-third along that line from the neck.

Neck Point I : - Located just above the strenal notch or just above the breast bone where the soft tissue of the front of the neck begins. The site is directly under tip of index finger.

Neck Point 2 : - this point is located by bending the neck slightly and noting prominent bone at the base of the neck. Point is located just below this prominent vertebral spine in the space in between it and the next lower vertebral or backbone spine.

Neck Point 3 : - This point is located just below the first cervical vertbral located on each side of the spine at the natural level of the hair line, each point being one finger - breadth to the side of the spine.

Penis Point : - Located in the mid-point of the base of the penis at its junction with the scrotum.

Face Point I : - Located on the centre of the forehead midway between the eyebrows.

Face Point 2 : - Located on each side of the forehead at the middle edge of the eyebrows.

Abdomen Point 3 : - Located two breadths below the umbilicus.

Abdomen Points 4 : - Located in the middle of the abdomen, one and a half inches below the navel four finger breadths below the umbilicus.

Leg Point I : - Located four finger-breadth below the lower level of the knee cap and about one finger-breadth to the outside of the skin bone in the soft tissue there.

Leg Point 2 : - At the lower tip of the calf muscle in the vertical midline of the back of the leg. It is located roughly in the centre of the leg just at the centre of the swollen portion of the shin.

Chest Point I : - Measure two inches from the nipple (in the direction of the arm). Count up three ribs. The point is between the first and second ribs from the top, one inch below the middle of clavicle the collarbone.

Chest Point 2 : - Located between sicth and seventh ribs, directly under the nipple. Other way of finding them is by detecting two ribs below the nipple on about a vertical line travelling through the middle of the natural position of the nipple ( in a woman lying on her back with the breast positioned so that it is symmetrical with the nipple in the middle).
