a) Facts about the Rapid Relief Acupressure Points
You will only need to work with four acupressure points in the Quick REMAP(4-point) Rapid Relief Protocol. However, these four points are very potentand very capable of easing intense emotional distress. This technique isespecially good with such overwhelming experiences as panic attacks,phobias, and traumas. It is also excellent for less intense stressful events.Research studies have proven the powerful effect that these acupointsproduce in the brain, the nervous system, in heart activity and in ourpsychological outlook. Some of the studies were from prestigious institutionsincluding Harvard Medical School and the Yale University School of Medicine.The first two rapid relief points have been the subject of research studies atHarvard Medical School. They are the fourth treatment point on the LargeIntestine meridian and the 36
treatment point on the Stomach meridian.
In traditional Chinese medicine, there are pathways of acupressure pointsthat serve each major organ in the body. These pathways are called meridians. Each pathway is named for the organ it serves and has a varyingnumber of points that range from nine to sixty-seven.
