Acupuncture and Acupressure

The Chinese believe, "Chi" is the Universal life force, which exists throughout space. This life force or "Prana" as known to the Indians flows continuously through out your body and, in the process, connecting all the organs inside. This life force energy or, "Chi" flows along specific channels known as "meridians". According to Chinese, human body comprises of two opposite natural forces called "YIN" and "YANG". These forces are both opposing and complementing each other. Yin is known to be female - passive, balanced and calm. Darkness, moisture, cold, swelling are represented by Yin. Yang is considered male - aggressive and exciting. Brightness (light), dryness and contraction are represented by Yang. Yin and Yang should always be in balance in your body. The imbalance only shows sickness. If "Yin" is in excess in the body, then you will have, a feeling of 'drained out', cold etc, and if the 'Yang' is in excess, then you will have headache or blood pressure. The system of Acupuncture, or for that matter, Acupressure, or even Acutouch, restores the balance of Yin and Yang by the use of needles in Acupuncture and finger tips in Acupressure and Acutouch. In other words, the Yin and Yang balance can be achieved through regulating the flow of life force energy "Chi", by applying pressure or by pricking through a needle on the "meridians".

The principles are almost same in Acupuncture, Acupressure or Acutouch, viz., ensuring smooth flow of "Chi" in the body. Meridians are located both on the back and front of the body. Each meridian joins various "chakras" and body organs. Along each meridian there are points, which allow the flow of energy along the meridians. All the 3 systems are based on the flow of life energy "Chi".
