Description

Product Description

Increased stress and traumatic events in our lives have resulted in many millions of people who suffer from insomnia, nightmares, anxiety attacks, depression, and tension headaches. ACUPRESSURE FOR EMOTIONAL HEALING offers relief at your fingertips, quickly and safely, for a wide range of emotional problems. It explains how emotional distress becomes lodged in the body as muscular tension and blocked energy, and shows how acupressure can relieve not just the resulting physical symptoms, but also their emotional source--often without the need for extensive talk therapy or medication.

Acupressure stimulates the same points used in acupuncture, but instead of needles, firm finger pressure is used on the surface of the skin. The pressure releases neurochemicals called endorphins that relieve pain. As in acupuncture, specific pressure points are connected with internal organs and energy pathways in the body (called meridians) that regulate the flow of electrical energy to all systems. Unlike acupuncture, acupressure can be used safely by anyone, with only the hands as equipment.

ACUPRESSURE FOR EMOTIONAL HEALING offers a comprehensive A-Z guide to emotional ailments (from abandonment to worry and obsessive thinking), with fully-illustrated instruction on dozens of precise acupressure point locations and how to activate them, combined with yogic breathing, stretching, and movement routines. Case histories from the authors'' practice further illuminate each condition and the path to emotional balance and healing. Most routines can be used independently for self-care and on-the-spot relief. There are also sections on how to use the techniques to help others, with appropriate safeguards.

Acupressure for Emotional Well-Being

What Is Acupressure?

More than five thousand years ago the Chinese discovered that by applying pressure with their fingers and hands to specific points on the body, they could relieve pain. Through instinct, trial and error, and methodical observation, they identified hundreds of acupressure points that could be used to alleviate physical symptoms, benefit the healthy functioning of internal organs, and balance the emotions.

Acupressure stimulates the same points as acupuncture, but instead of needles, it uses the gentle but firm pressure of the hands to release muscular tension, promote the circulation of blood, and stimulate the body''s natural self-curative abilities. Acupressure reaches to the core many of the emotional disorders and stress-related physical problems that typify our contemporary world. By freeing unresolved emotional experiences stored in the body, acupressure can alleviate a wide range of everyday aches and pains, allergies, poor circulation, sleeplessness, and other chronic complaints. It can even unveil the memory of a traumatic experience that caused an emotional wound.

For years Sally complained about being anxious and tense, which resulted in recurring headaches. As a store manager at age thirty-four, she was finding her emotional stress and physical complaints severely draining. She had chronic tension in her neck and a curvature in her upper back. Her relationship with her boyfriend was stressful and further exacerbated her pain. She felt overwhelmed; making decisions was especially difficult.

Sally took an acupressure class, where she learned points to relieve her pain at home. As she held her neck and the pressure points under the base of her skull with her eyes closed, she remembered a fight with a boy in second grade: he had pushed her back so abruptly that her neck was traumatized with whiplash. She recalled how her head filled with pressure as her teacher reprimanded her in front of the class. Since then she had suffered from anxiety attacks and head pain. Holding the acupressure points on her own neck enabled Sally to recall and reexperience the source of her trauma. She began seeing a psychotherapist and a bodyworker. One month after practicing self-acupressure twice a day, she reported that her neck tension, headaches, and anxiety had dissipated; she felt clearer, empowered, and more self-reliant.

Acupressure relaxes the tight muscles that result from an emotional trauma. A traumatic event causes the body to contract its muscles and harden, like protective armor, to shield the inner self. For instance, when something frightens you or someone uptight treats you abrasively, your neck and shoulders may tighten immediately in response. This tension prevents energy from circulating freely in your body. As a result, your body may overreact and shut down, causing various physical ailments and emotional imbalances. If you do not deal with these tensions and resulting afflictions, emotional problems may resurface. Most therapies address the cognitive and emotional aspects of trauma but do not get to the physiological component. Acupressure has an advantage over these therapies in that its techniques work directly with the body that has been affected by the trauma.

Emotional imbalances and the physical symptoms that accompany them are often the body''s response to unresolved issues and events. A tension headache, for instance, may be caused by a conflict at work or an argument over homework with one''s teenager. Someone who witnessed a fatal automobile accident may live with the memory of burning bodies and twisted metal in the form of recurring nightmares and insomnia; if left untreated they can continue for years. Divorce, even when it seems amicable, is a life-changing transition that can cause both emotional problems (like anxiety, worry, and moderate depression) and physical symptoms (such as stomachaches, ulcers, irritable bowel problems, and more).

Brenda, a forty-two-year-old computer programmer, went for an acupressure session because she had been suffering from insomnia and anxiety ever since her bitter divorce three years earlier. The divorce process was a series of traumatic, emotionally painful experiences. She felt drained and depressed, but she didn''t have a history of depression, and she didn''t think depression ran in her family. Her doctor prescribed Prozac for the depression and Xanax for her nervousness and fatigue. She tried biofeedback to help her relax, and cognitive-behavioral therapy to deal with her constant negative thoughts. She found that neither the medications nor the various other therapies she tried transformed her ongoing depressed state of mind. Her depression fluctuated between apathy and despair.

Finally, Brenda took a friend''s advice and got in touch with Michael Gach. During the first sessions, they worked on her back, and in her abdomen. Michael showed her emotional balancing points on her upper neck and chest for the anxiety-related headaches, and upper back exercises and ankle points for the insomnia. After using self-acupressure and breathing exercises daily for a month, Brenda felt more relaxed and self-reliant. Holding the points in her upper neck, reduced the frequency and severity of her headaches. After three months of self-treatment her sleep improved, she had more energy, and a decrease in her anxiety. Acupressure released most of the tension that Brenda had accumulated and carried in the aftermath of her marital split, making emotional resolution possible. In addition, she gained a renewed connection with her body, restoring her vitality and touching her aliveness.

Our bodies are constantly making adjustments to accommodate the demands (some would say unnatural demands) of modern technology. People who work at their desks, typing away at a computer keyboard and straining their eyes to see the screen, are no strangers to headaches, tense shoulders, stiff neck, backaches, shallow breathing, and repetitive injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome.

Television, computers, and video games are also major causes of the obesity epidemic. Poor eating habits, stress in the workplace or at home, chronic muscular tension, lack of exercise, and bad posture contribute to lethargy, depression, and apathy. Acupressure can rebalance your body and enable you to cope with the demands of modern life.

Foundations of Acupressure & Emotional Healing

Using this natural healing art has no side effects. Your hands are the only equipment you need. The art of acupressure utilizes the sensitivity of the human hand to release endorphins, your body''s natural pain-relieving chemicals. These neurochemicals are released by your pituitary gland and get distributed through the cerebrospinal fluid into the bloodstream. Simply holding certain points with steady, firm pressure for a few minutes will release these pain-relief agents. We believe that endorphins also play an important role in cultivating both physical and emotional healing.

Tension and pain accumulate at acupressure points. As a point is held, muscular tension yields to finger pressure, enabling the fibers of the muscle to elongate and relax, blood to flow freely, and toxins to be released and eliminated. When blood and bioelectrical energy circulate properly, you have a greater sense of harmony, health, and well-being. As a result, your symptoms are alleviated, and your circulation is increased sufficiently to restore well-being.

Acupressure points have a high electrical conductivity at the surface of the skin. Holding a point allows life energy to flow through the body. Traditional Chinese medicine refers to this energy as chi (pronounced chee); in Japan it is known as ki (pronounced key). Western scientists have proven the existence of this energy by using microvolt meters, high-tech electrical devices that measure energy and electrical charge throughout the body.

Meridians are the energy pathways that connect acupressure points to one another and to the internal organs. Just as blood vessels nourish the body physically, meridians circulate healing energy to all systems of the body. There are twelve bilateral meridians that run along both sides of the body and relate to specific organs, and eight extraordinary vessels. These pathways are a master communication system of universal life energy, connecting the organs with all sensory experiences.* An acupressure point in one part of the body can send a healing message to other parts of the body through the meridians. Applying pressure on certain points triggers the flow of energy through the meridian pathway. We call these trigger points because they are at a distance from the area they benefit.

The limbic system, a group of structures in the forebrain, has been called the center of our emotions. The limbic system requires energy to flow through the meridians to function properly, but stress and emotional disturbances inhibit the circulation of energy. The resulting tensions accumulate at acupressure points. As tension from stress builds or becomes chronic, blood circulation decreases, inhibiting body functions. Tightness in the chest can make breathing difficult. Using acupressure points on the chest can free breathing, reduce chest pain, and relieve depression. The balancing point on the center of the breastbone, for instance, is good for relieving dizziness and chest constriction, benefiting the cardiovascular system and calming the emotions.

In this book, you will find acupressure points used for a variety of emotional problems, many of which present themselves as physical symptoms. For instance, as you hold points underneath your skull to relieve a headache or insomnia, an insight may come that shifts your state of mind and thereby alleviates your anxiety. As you continue to open your body''s energy by using acupressure, greater health, mental clarity, and an expanded awareness will occur, dissolving conflicts between mind and body.

*Harriet Beinfield, LAc, and Efrem Korngold, LAc, OMD, Between Heaven and Earth: A Guide to Chinese Medicine (New York: Ballantine, 1991).

After suffering for several weeks of a broken heart, I received this book. I quickly turned to the pages on anger, grief, anxiety, sadness, guilt, etc. and found that there were several acupressure points in common with all of these treatments. So, I just worked on those points, regardless of what the feeling I was having was. For me, this really worked! Within a day I was feeling better: more grounded, more calm, less charged internally and less upset. I need to take the time to read all of this book because there is a lot of really valuable information, including quick treatment options, meditations, affirmations, etc. for each type of emotional problem. I would say that this book should be considered first aid for people who tend to react to life''s troubles emotionally, instead of physically. Water signs, empaths, healers, and artists will all benefit from this. If you are mostly an emotional person, or are going through an emotionally difficult time I would say give this book a try. The treatments are very easy and easy to remember. You can do all of them anywhere, including in public, if you need to. I also recommend Qi Gong..look for Lee Holden videos on youtube. It helped me re-cultivate my OWN energy and gave me something to focus on first thing in the morning besides my misery.

I am finding this book quite useful. We are incorporating these pressure points with other alternative therapies (tuning fork/sound therapy), meditation (God''s Word is our standard) and essential oils that are emotionally supportive. There are a wide range of emotional unpacking protocols that are not necessarily addressed in other sources. I like that it gets to the root of most problems (like shame, guilt, PTSD, etc) and not just trying to address every surface issue that exists. It is most beneficial in correlation with your own inner emotional unpacking, with counseling, etc.

Great supplement to my acupuncture treatments and the first chance I see to give myself treatments and not rely on someone else for pain relief. I''m an avid reader, and this book has had one of the most profound impacts in my life as any book I''ve read. I''m still new to the whole meridian thing and it took me over a year to "get it." Now I''m so excited to learn more for myself, my family and my friends. Acupressure has given me the tools I need to take my life back.

I first bought "Acupressure''s Potent Points: A Guide to Self-Care for Common Ailments" by Dr. Gach. One point can affect many different symptoms, so I have been concentrating on the ones that help the most. A little time every day is all it takes. I expect that taking care of myself in this manner will save me lots of time and money down the road in medical expenses.

This could well be the best investment of money and time of my entire life.

I was all set to go to Cognitive Therapy sessions, through my basic insurance plan. While surfing the net, I happened to stumble upon an article about massage and acupressure - specifically, its effectiveness with clients who have PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), anxiety and other imbalances. There was a link to ACUPRESSURE FOR EMOTIONAL HEALING: A SELF-CARE GUIDE FOR TRAUMA, STRESS & COMMON EMOTIONAL IMBALANCES. I was intrigued. This led me to read some reviews of the book online (specifically, on Amazon). Every reader who had purchased the book, and took the time to review it gave it great ratings. I was convinced and felt moved to purchase it, in order to have my own experience.

For starters, this book has numerous detailed photos, illustrating which pressure points are most effective, as far as alleviating feelings of sustained trauma, stress, depression and mood disorder. I will be candid in saying that I struggle with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) from years of exposure to imbalanced behavior and abuse, as a youth. I also deal with depression, that is, at times, debilitating. What''s more, I have had to work through panic attacks, since I was six years old. The articles about the points were amazing and eye opening. The authors give examples of clients who reaped the benefits of acupressure, in addition to modifying diet, and seeking out massage/counseling. Immediately, I began to feel less alone in my situation. The acupressure points really do work in lifting out residual emotional anguish. What''s more, they ask that you hold the points for up to two minutes, as well as breathing in and out, really focusing on the pain (emotional/physical) that hurts you the most.

I cannot recommend this enough. Truly. I have combined the acupressure regime with daily exercise, meditation, intentional thought and art. Therapeutic and awakening.

I love this book! It contains so many simple sequences and mini routines to help all sorts of emotional challenges that we all go through in life, including grief, depression, anger, abuse, abandonment, PTSD, guilt, doubt, fear, addiction, insomnia and even things like PMS, nightmares and chronic fatigue. For me this goes alongside yoga and meditation as a self-care tool. I think every household should have a copy of this book, especially as from the healing work I do on myself and others, I know that many health challenges are due to blocked emotions. Trying out the different trigger point sequences in this book could help prevent more serious longer term health challenges. There may be some emotional upheaval at first as old blocked emotions come to the surface, but with patience and time, releasing and healing these parts of ourselves brings about deeper peace and self acceptance.

Yes, this actually goes some way to healing tension in the body caused by emotional trauma, and also, to some extent,pain caused by physical injury. The instructions for the self-administered acupressure, using fingers, are extremely clear and understood by studying the diagrams for each particular area and emotional condition. Grief, loss, abandonment, lack of parental love etc are all included, and as we internalise them, can cause imbalances throughout the body. The treatments do work and I recommend this as one of the most useful books I have bought recently.
