Acupressure: A self care tool that is always at hand

Anxiety has taken hold.  The evidence is all around us in people who use the word ‘busy’ as a badge of honour and don’t get enough restorative sleep.  The rates of medication use is rising with unclear long-term side effects.

What if help was at hand, literally, 24 hours a day?

Accupressure treatments follow acupuncture principles,  using pressure on acupuncture points along meridians to treat a wide range of symptoms and conditions including anxiety.  Below are two easily accessible points that can help to relieve stress and encourage calmness.

Apply gentle pressure for 1-2 minutes.  The relief is almost immediate.

Self-care such as acupressure provides options to help manage anxiety and stress.  It is not intended to replace medical care should it be required.
