According to ancient Chinese medicine acupressure points lie alongside meridians (the channels throughout your body). Vital energy flows through these invisible channels giving us a life force commonly known as qi (ch'i). These meridians lead to various organs that can connect our system to trigger and release endorphins and offer the benefit of having rejuvenated a specific area within.
To stay relaxed and healthy we need to keep these channels open and flush through any blockages we may have that may give us the feeling of anxiety or the body being out of balance.
In a mad busy world any time we set aside to give us a feeling of well being is time well spent. As with everything.... good health starts from within.
