    Acupressure has been used by several people for centuries. There are several theories surrounding its origin and purpose. One popular theory states that acupuncture was made by a person suffering from sleeplessness, fatigue, headaches, pain, tension and anxiety. They felt these symptoms were due to blockages at their normal energy pathways. Acupressure clears these blockages and allows the individual to get good sleep, restful slumbers and alleviate pain.

    Acupressure originated in China where it was used for various purposes like pain relief, but it soon developed into its present form. Acupressure techniques were developed to help people relax by using steady pressure to specific regions of the body, called acupoints. Today, acupressure techniques are used in conjunction with other kinds of natural therapies, such as massage and acupuncture to treat a number of conditions.

    Acupressure can be applied to any area of the body, although the most frequently applied are the acupoints close to the elbows, elbows, and knees. If you feel an acupressure point, then apply direct pressure to it. If there’s pain or discomfort, then it’s time to proceed and perform another pressure point exercise. However, there are rare cases when a person is so sensitive they only wish to move the acupoint if they feel pain or discomfort, which is called"self-induced pain"

    Acupressure as a sort of treatment dates back to ancient China. Early Chinese medical records known to acupressure as"massage strokes" and recommended that the patient drink plenty of water and consume beans. They also advised that the patient avoid salt and fatty foods since these substances cause difficulty in rubbing the needles against the pressure points. Due to these restrictions, early Chinese medical records don’t reflect much clinical study of acupressure and acupuncture. In actuality, the only records available from these days reflect traditional Chinese medicine practices, such as placing the hands on the individual and using the flowing water to apply pressure to the pressure factors. No one today drinks large amounts of water and does not eat beans and seaweed, so how did acupuncture begin?

    Lots of people feel that acupuncture treatment for morning sickness has been extremely successful and popular in China. Others believe that the practice fell into disfavor because the men and women who tried it became addicted to the feeling of the pressing needles on their skin. When the Chinese learned that there were other remedies, like herbs, available, they replaced their ancient technique with Chinese herbs and acupuncture. Today, acupuncture remains a highly effective part of the medical community in treating nausea and vomiting. Studies continue to confirm its effectiveness.

    Acupressure may be used alone or in conjunction with herbs, and there is evidence that both are successful. By way of instance, steaming the body with a hot cloth whilst placing either acupressure needles or any herbs on specific pressure points might help calm the autonomic nervous system. A study done at an acupuncture clinic in Thailand showed that patients who used acupuncture had reduced nausea and vomiting than those who took a placebo. The only side effect was minor stomach cramps. There are many other natural methods, including herbal nutritional supplements and vitamin supplements, that are being researched as possible ways to treat nausea and vomiting.

    Acupressure has proven very effective when combined with traditional Chinese medicine practices. Acupressure points are chosen based on where the pain or symptom began. This allows the acupressure points to stimulate certain points in the meridian system, thus relieving pain. In China, acupressure was commonly used to relieve fevers, especially in travelers. The ancient peoples discovered the results of acupuncture to be instantaneous and deep.

    Today, there are lots of types of over the counter medications which can be used to treat nausea and vomiting. Some of those drugs work by decreasing intestinal or stomach pressure, which relieves nausea and pressure. Others reduce nausea by blocking nerve impulses to the stomach and intestines.
