Intimately connected to acupuncture in Bellmore is a mode of therapy called acupressure. This therapy can be used on a limited basis on yourself although it also can be administered in-office.
Acupressure is directly based on theories behind acupuncture, using similar principles of activating selected acupressure points (acupoints) on the body. But, as you may have known for now, the acupoints are stimulated with pressure rather than needles.
The best body areas to start your acupressure journey for relieving problems is the areas around your eyes. And this is one procedure you can definitely administer on yourself.
Place your thumbs about halfway upon both sides of your nose. Firmly apply pressure on them against the cartilage in your nostrils. Maintain the pressure for thirty seconds (makes sure it’s not over thirty seconds since this time is considered more than enough time to apply pressure in this part of your body).
Do this as often as you can.
