Acupressure is one of the most commonly known practices in the world. It is based on the fundamental principle of the activation of acupoints across the body’s “meridians”. Acupressure is an alternative medicinal technique often used in conjunction with acupuncture. It is based on the concept of life energy which flows through these meridians in the body; in treatment, physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points or “ashi trigger points”, with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians. Pressure may be applied by hand, elbow, or with various other devices. Some medical studies have suggested that acupressure may be effective at helping manage nausea and vomiting, relieving low back pain, tension headaches, stress/mood issues, and stomach aches, among other benefits. It is important to note that some studies have been found to have a high likelihood of bias and there is no reliable evidence for the 100% sole effectiveness of acupressure.

Pressure points refer to an area on the human body that may produce significant pain , relief, or other effects when manipulated in a specific manner. The activation of acupoints is usually facilitated by use of fingers or the simply available various hand-held acupressure devices. Using the Azurai Acupressure Mat/Pillow Set allows you to yield positive results for your health through activating different pressure points.
