Therefore, acupuncturists and acupressurists believe that the imbalance or blockage of chi leads to illnesses. In this way, the function of the body organs can be dramatically improved if the energy flow throughout the body is improved.

Each meridian is linked to a different internal body organ and contains pressure points.

The stimulation of these points, either through acupressure or acupuncture, releases the blocked qi, and thus the tension in the corresponding organ. Through pressure, qi is drawn into the channel and invigorates the organ.

The following trick is a completely safe, simple, and easy way to enjoy the benefits of the Chinese traditional medicine.
