To activate your body’s self-healing power, first locate of the acupressure points that you need to work on for your specific needs. Apply firm pressure is the most fundamental technique. Use thumbs, fingers, palms, the side of the hand, or knuckles to apply steady, stationary pressure to the point for 1-2 minutes.
A general guideline to follow is that the pressure should be firm enough so that it hurts a little. The more developed the muscles are, the more pressure you should apply. If you feel extreme sensitivity or pain, gradually decrease the pressure until you find a balance between pain and pleasure. Do not continue to press a point that is excruciatingly painful.
2 Basic Acupressure Techniques Pressing Techniques: Position your finger directly on the acupressure point and direct the pressure firmly on the surface of the skin. Hold for about 30 seconds, then gradually release the pressure. Pressure should be applied gently at first and gradually increased until you feel a mild sensation. You may apply deep breathing techniques while holding pressure on the point until you feel a regular pulse or until the soreness at the point decreases, then gradually release the pressure. This is recommended with points on the mid-line of the body, such as the torso points and head points.
Rubbing Techniques: Position finger on the acupressure point and direct the pressure firmly on the surface of the skin. Instead of holding the pressure in one place, rub the acupressure point in a circular motion for about 30 seconds, then gradually release the pressure.
