5 Reasons to Try Pressure Point Therapy

Chronic pain and stress are all-too-common issues among adults in the United States today. While some people rely on massage therapy or other natural means to manage their stress and pain, far too many rely on prescription drugs like opioids and psychotropics. That may sound like a reasonable solution until you realize that not only do these drugs not cure anything, they also come with long lists of terrible side-effects that are, more often than not, worse than the conditions they claim to “treat.” Instead of using drugs that do more harm than good, you should try Pressure Point Therapy for relief from chronic pain and stress. 

What is Pressure Point Therapy? 

Pressure Point Therapy is a technique where pressure is applied to strategic points along your body’s nerve pathways. By applying pressure to these points, we can loosen muscles and painful knots of energy to help you find relief from stress and chronic pain.

5 Benefits of Pressure Point Therapy 

There are many health and wellness benefits to receiving Pressure Point Therapy. Here are the top five reasons we recommend this technique at our practice: 

1. Relieve Pain Naturally

Pressure Point Therapy helps relieve pain naturally by targeting specific areas of the body where tension accumulates. By releasing this tension, Pressure Point Therapy can decompress your nerves and enable their energy to flow as it should. This reduces pain and relieves stress in your body. 

2. Improve Blood Circulation 

By targeting those specific areas of your body and relieving the tension compressing your nerves and muscles, Pressure Point Therapy helps to improve your blood circulation, as well. This increased blood flow helps relieve pain, nourish cells, and promote healing throughout the body.

3. Lower Blood Pressure 

Pressure Point Therapy releases tension in your muscles to help them relax, which is a proven way to reduce your heart rate. With routine treatment over time, this therapy can help lower high blood pressure by removing the stress from your body. 

4. Reduce Stress Levels

As explained in the points above, targeting specific points in your body with the right amount of pressure decreases muscle tension, improves your blood flow, and unblocks your nerve pathways. Many people experience mental or emotional stress in their bodies—tense muscles, racing heartbeats, etc. Pressure Point Therapy relieves those symptoms and can help you relax more easily after a stressful day. 

5. Restore Energy Levels

Tense muscles leave you feeling sore and tired. They block your energy and make it difficult for your body to heal. Regular Pressure Point Therapy sessions can keep your muscles more relaxed, which helps restore your energy levels similar to a good night’s sleep in a comfortable bed.
