— A Special Guest Report from Laura Devlin, Naturecast Products

An estimated 70 million Americans are affected by chronic pain.

This pain interferes with every part of their lives. Whether it’s work, travel, home, or hobbies, pain just really takes the wind out of the sails. And, even worse, chronic pain contributes to a host of secondary problems, such as depression, insomnia, irritability, and anxiety, which are themselves health risks.

The unfortunate thing is that the majority of these people don’t know about a simple ancient system that might be able to relieve their pain without drugs of any type.

The ancient Chinese discovered points on the body that held extraordinary healing power when stimulated. Traditionally, Asian cultures conceived of the points as junctures of special pathways that carried the human energy that the Chinese call chi and the Japanese call ki.

That is why most Western medical professionals used to discount this healing art. But, over time as its popularity grew more studies were done and Western scientists discovered that besides these spiritual explanations there were scientific explanations as to why acupressure seemed to work.

The acupressure points are places on the skin that are especially sensitive to bioelectrical impulses in the body and conduct those impulses readily. Scientists have actually mapped out and proven the existence of this system of body points by using sensitive electrical devices.

Stimulating these points with pressure, needles, or heat triggers the release of endorphins, which are the neurochemicals that relieve pain. As a result, pain is blocked and the flow of blood and oxygen to the affected area is increased. This causes the muscles to relax and promotes healing.

Besides relieving pain, acupressure can help rebalance the body by dissolving tensions and stresses that keep it from functioning smoothly and that inhibit the immune system.
