Natural Pain Therapy
Pressure Point Healing
Pressure Point Healing™ is a radical new approach and understanding of acupressure for pain relief, weight loss, stress reduction, and rejuvenation. It is a method of contacting and releasing the vital nerve centers of the body where toxic irritations have accumulated. It has no doubt been established that internal organ irritation projects itself upon the skin and subcutaneous structures as tender points. What has not been understood is that these nerve centers of chronic irritation pool an accumulation of toxins that accentuate the pain when palpated.
These pressure points also correspond to many homeopathic remedies, based on the findings of Dr. Weihe and my mentor Dr. Charles McWilliams.
Pressure Point Healing at its root modality is treatment by counter-irritation. The typical bodywork treatment is called Direct Ischemic Pressure [DIP]. It is the epitome of simplicity. Apply direct pressure onto the trigger point until the maximum pressure and referral pain has been achieved. Then simply maintain that level of pressure. After a few seconds, the referral pattern will start shifting and disappear until it is only under the pressure point. After that has been achieved, the pain level will decrease to the point where it is merely sensed as pressure and no longer painful. Unlike injections, this DOES have the potential over time to cure the problem. It is something that people can easily be taught do for themselves. For generations, so many cultures have used counterirritant therapies to bring about healing. We have all kinds of analgesics and painkillers today, but society has long forgotten the practice of counter-irritation: An agent or force that induces local inflammation to relieve inflammation in underlying or adjacent tissues. The therapeutics of it in medicine is also called revulsion: the diminution of morbid action in one part of the body by irritation in another.
All common disorders that people suffer will be genuinely helped by pressure point healing. Even the emotional centers of the brain can be reached giving the client a wonderful feeling of relaxation and psychic relief.
This is very effective for those suffering with Fibromyalgia and other chronic myofacial dysfunctions.
