Acupressure or the method of applying pressure on certain points of the body in order to relieve pain has long been part of Eastern Holistic Medicine.
In the last decades, this method has begun to gain recognition in the Western world as well and nowadays people use acupressure to reduce pain in different parts of the body.
This holistic method to relieve pain is based on the theory that there are several acupressure points in the body, which can be relieved by a series of painful conditions and discomfort.
The best thing about acupressure is that it can be used by itself as it does not require medical attention or an expert.
The thing is that healing pressure massage certain parts of the body, also called acupressure points, relieves pain and improves overall health.
To be more specific, acupressure not only reduces pain, but also relieves nausea, vertigo, headaches, etc.
One thing that can be treated with this method is heart palpitations. We have all experienced the unpleasant feeling of increased heart rate when we are stressed or anxious.
Although they do not endanger life, this condition can be very annoying.
However, you can normalize the heartbeat easily by applying pressure at the point known as the ‘sea of peace’ in holistic medicine.
This point is in the central part of the breast bone. To reduce heart palpitations, press this point with your thumb and hold for 1-2 minutes.
Make sure that you breathe deeply while performing the treatment!
