From the Inside Flap
Acupressure stimulates the same points used in acupuncture, but instead of needles, firm finger pressure is used on the surface of the skin. The pressure releases neurochemicals called endorphins that relieve pain. As in acupuncture, specific pressure points are connected with internal organs and energy pathways in the body (called meridians) that regulate the flow of electrical energy to all systems. Unlike acupuncture, acupressure can be used safely by anyone, with only the hands as equipment.
ACUPRESSURE FOR EMOTIONAL HEALING offers a comprehensive A-Z guide to emotional ailments (from abandonment to worry and obsessive thinking), with fully-illustrated instruction on dozens of precise acupressure point locations and how to activate them, combined with yogic breathing, stretching, and movement routines. Case histories from the authors' practice further illuminate each condition and the path to emotional balance and healing. Most routines can be used independently for self-care and on-the-spot relief. There are also sections on how to use the techniques to help others, with appropriate safeguards.

For starters, this book has numerous detailed photos, illustrating which pressure points are most effective, as far as alleviating feelings of sustained trauma, stress, depression and mood disorder. I will be candid in saying that I struggle with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) from years of exposure to imbalanced behavior and abuse, as a youth. I also deal with depression, that is, at times, debilitating. What's more, I have had to work through panic attacks, since I was six years old. The articles about the points were amazing and eye opening. The authors give examples of clients who reaped the benefits of acupressure, in addition to modifying diet, and seeking out massage/counseling. Immediately, I began to feel less alone in my situation. The acupressure points really do work in lifting out residual emotional anguish. What's more, they ask that you hold the points for up to two minutes, as well as breathing in and out, really focusing on the pain (emotional/physical) that hurts you the most.
I cannot recommend this enough. Truly. I have combined the acupressure regime with daily exercise, meditation, intentional thought and art. Therapeutic and awakening.
Another reviewer said that life just got better and better...and I agree. We all have complex things that happen to us in the course of a lifetime; here is a way to finally let go and move forward.
Bravo to the authors.
