RELIEF FROM PAIN, TENSION, AND STRESS IS RIGHT AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

With your hands you have potential to relieve everyday aches, pains, and ailments without taking drugs, to improve your health, and to increase your vitality. Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to stimulate key points on the skin that, in turn, activate the body's natural self-healing processes. With this book, it is a skill you can learn now -- and use in your own home.

In Acupressure i Potent Points, Michael Reed Gach, founder and director of the Acupressure Institute of America, reveals simple techniques that enable you to relieve headaches, arthritis, colds and flu, insomnia, backaches, hiccups, leg pain, hot flashes, depression, and more using the power and sensitivity of your own hands.

Written in clear, accessible language, with more than 400 photographs and easy-to-follow line drawings, Acupressure's Potent Points includes:

  • step-by-step exercises in each chapter
  • a five-minute acupressure wellness program
  • a chart to help you document your health progress
  • tips on living and eating well
  • and much more
This practical guide covers more than forty ailments and symptoms, from allergies to wrist pain, providing pressure-point maps and exercises to relieve pain and restore function.
