    Want Relief? Get To The Point!

    In a nutshell, Acupressure's Potent Points: a Guide to Self-Care for Common Ailments shows the reader how they can use acupressure on themselves to relieve stress related problems.<BR/><BR/>So what exactly is acupressure? Well, its an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to press on key points on the surface of the skin- which in turn stimulates the body's natural self-curing abilities. More specifically, when these points are pressed on for several minutes, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body's life force to aid healing. If at this point you're wondering how acupressure differs from ACUPUNCTURE, well, there's not much difference- the same points are used for both, its's just that one uses needles and the other uses your fingers.<BR/><BR/>And just what makes these acupressure points or "potent points" so special? Well, as the book explains, they are places on the skin that are especially sensitive to bioelectrical impulses in the body and conduct these impulses readily. So, by stimulating these points with your fingers, you're triggering the release of endorphins (your body's natural pain killers) which blocks the pain. This in turn increases the flow of blood and oxygen to the affected area which promotes healing and causes the muscles to relax.<BR/><BR/>Neat huh? This kind of info is covered in Part I of the book. Part II, which is about 85% of the book, covers the acupressure points themselves and the techniques for the specific ailments- and boy do they cover the ailments! Just about everything you can imagine is covered from acne to fainting to shoulder tension. Pictures are a plenty and show you the exact areas to press on- it's a pretty easy process and the book makes it simple to do. Also of note is that there are two ways to use the book, you can look up a problem by system (i.e. digestive system, immune system, etc.) via a handy chart, or simply look a problem up by flipping around as the ailments are covered in alphabetical order.<BR/><BR/>The book ends with two appendices, one being a nice point location chart, and the other a summary of the potent points. All-in-all its a pretty clear and easy to use book that should help many put an end to their stress-related aches and pains. Other pain books that might be of interest include The 5-Minute Plantar Fasciitis Solution for readers suffering from plantar fasciitis.

    No Voodoo Accupressure That Really Works

    This book makes understanding and using accupressure easy. You can pick up the book and begin helping yourself right away. From acne to stress, or arthritis and TMJ to migraines, this book shows you how to obtain relief immediately. In addition, the author includes preventive accupressure steps that help keep you tuned up, so to speak. The book is easy to read; it's easy to find what you want--whenever you want it, and has clear diagrams that are easy to follow. I already bought five or more at different times, to give to others who needlessly suffer from chronic aches, pains, depression, anxiety, and many other irritating conditions. Now, I have to buy another copy for myself. I keep giving mine away. People like it so much that I can't bear to ask them to give it back.

    Great Book!

    Very useful, easy to pick up and start learning. Good for beginners and probably a easy reference for knowledgeables. Worked for me!
