Guidelines for Accupressure Beginners

Accupressure guidelines will help you in applying acupressure to yourself. This may also answer some of your basic questions about how to apply pressure to the acupressure points. With these guidelines use common sense, and you’ll find acupressure is safe.

Apply pressure gradually and slowly. Hold with a light, steady pressure for 1 to 3 minutes. If you are sore, use less pressure. If less pressure is still tender use light touch. However, if you’re muscular or like deeper pressure, you can increase the pressure until it hurts good. 

1.Always hold the acupressure points lightly for a minute before coming off the points.  For best results, relax in a very comfortable position with your eyes closed, and breathe deeply for at least 5 to 10 minutes afterward. This deep relaxation enables the acupressure points to balance the systems and healing energy within your body.


2. Avoid pressing on cuts, wounds, tumors and stay away from pressing near your throat. Warmth and some tingling can be a good sign that blood circulation is increasing to heal those areas. However, if you get too dizzy, press the center of your chest.

3. If you are an Acupressure beginner, do not press longer than 3 minutes on any one point. Always apply pressure slowly.

4. If you have a medical condition or on medication, hold the points more gently, for just a minute each. Be sure to get medical care. Acupressure can enhance your health and relieve common ailments but it is not a substitute for getting medical attention and treatment. Please see a doctor, and get a second medical opinion, if you have severe health problems.

5. Breathe slowly, smoothly, and deeply while holding the acupressure points and during the deep relaxation, immediately after applying self-acupressure. If you hold a point for only a minute or two and do not have the time or a good place to relax, a deep relaxation period may not be necessary.
