Abstract :

Acupressure, the art of healing using gentle pressure applied with the fingertips, has been gaining recognition from branches of medical science. Originated from China, acupressure is used to treat an imbalance in the flow of body energy called Qi in the rivers of energy which are called meridians. There are 12 meridians that represent 12 major organs of the body such as the heart, kidneys, liver, lungs, colon, spleen and bladder. Meanwhile, there are eight regulatory channels acting to gently restore balance of the whole body.
