Why Heal Yourself With Acupressure?
To Release Your Body’s Healing Energy!
Have you ever spent hours at your desk toiling away until your back becomes stiff and you have an inexplicable ache all over your body? Your eyes start to lose focus and you can’t help but count down the hours, minutes and seconds to when the clock hits 6 and you’re free to go?
Well, I have. Every Monday to Friday I get up early and go to work, my only solace being lunch time, which isn’t much because the lunch crowds at food places are horrendous. I felt tired all over and could barely stay awake until evening, much less go out for dinner with friends after work.
Headaches were the norm for me – I’d get them in the morning, after lunch, during the post-lunch slump, after work, you name it. It was like living in a head full of bricks 24 hours a day. The other day our boss announced a new scheme that awards a raise to the most productive and upbeat personality in our department, but I was so far gone down the depression spiral that I hardly even heard the details.
Finally I just couldn’t take it any more. Instead of complaining about how lackluster I felt, I searched for ways to make myself feel better. Pills were not an option as I didn’t want to become addicted to anti-depressants or experience the many harmful side-effects I’d read about. I was looking for a more holistic alternative, and I found it in a guide called Pure Natural Healing.
It’s a comprehensive guide surrounding the concept of meridian therapy, also known as acupressure, which is similar to the more popular acupuncture. Unlike acupuncture, acupressure doesn’t require needles to be penetrated into the skin. Acupressure uses massaging techniques to stimulate energy flow between the meridian points of the body.
It may sound like some New Age kind of therapy but actually it’s been a proven traditional method of Chinese medicine for centuries. What I love about meridian therapy is that it cures the root of the problem, and does not just treat the symptoms like so much modern medicine nowadays.
For example, if you get the flu, the antibiotics get rid of the flu but they don’t boost your immune system to help you counter the next flu virus that comes around. Meridian therapy serves to get to the cause of what’s affecting you daily, such as stress and blood circulation.
I decided to give Pure Natural Healing a try as other therapies provided online weren’t comprehensive enough. Their instructions usually involved complicated steps and didn’t have many illustrations to help smooth the process. Pure Natural Healing consisted of numerous pictures with every technique mentioned, along with specific steps written concisely. It even came with a video to properly demonstrate how the Qi-Flexercise worked.
After doing the Qi-Flexercise just a few times, I saw an improvement in my skin – my acne started clearing up, and my skin looked brighter and healthier. My mom and I were both amazed at how my health had improved so dramatically. I felt more energetic in the mornings and no longer had that heavy sense of dread that used to sit on my shoulders as I made the mundane commute to work.
It’s really heartening to see how my family and I have become much more joyful and living healthier now. I’ve realized how thankful I should be for having a decent job that paid my bills and allowed me room for my hobbies, and I see now that a well-rested mind and body are absolutely essential to our over-all happiness.
Since I don’t dread waking up in the mornings any more because of excessive lethargy, my productivity at work has almost doubled and I’ve even started becoming more social with my colleagues. Here’s to hoping I’ll be getting that raise soon!
