Acupressure ( also sometimes known as Shiatsu massage) is known to be effective in the relief of pain and the symptoms of, a variety of ills. Acupressure energy points are the same points as used in acupuncture but instead of using needles, fingers and thumbs are used. Acupressure points, like reflexology points in the soles of the feet, are described as areas of the skin where meridians or channels terminate from connections to various parts of the body. These meridians provide a circulation system for electrical energy throughout the body and can be thought of as a communications network. Simply, they can be used to direct the body's nervous system to release muscular tension and assist the flow of blood to injured parts. It is thought that negative magnetic energy plays a major role in this process within the body and the use of negative magnetic stimulus externally can be most effective." The following information is presented as a guide to the more common Acupressure points. There are many more points that can be used, some for just one specific group of complaints. Below, are a list of common ailment and dis-eases with the corresponding acupressure points on which magnets can be used to effect relief.
