The Acupressure is an ancient Chinese healing technique , which uses hands to massage to stimulate the body's vital energy and thus unlock blockages that are causing ailments. One of the techniques of acupressure is thermal massage . Let's see what they treat and what are the benefits of acupressure thermal massage .
What is thermal acupressure
The acupressure stimulates, by massaging hands, some specific points of the body to unlock energy blockages and restore the flow of vital energy ( qi or chi ) in the physical body.
In the case of thermal acupressure , elements of heat stimulation, such as herbs, hot stones and moxibustion , are used to deepen the therapy .
These heat therapies stimulate the work of acupressure by raising the temperature around the spine and stimulating blood circulation in the area by transferring heat to the blood vessels, thus unblocking the energy blockages.
The thermal acupressure can remove nods, improve strength and reduce stress levels and improve blood circulation and overall response of the immune system. It also helps to detoxify the body, relax it and improve symptoms of chronic pain and inflammation.
It is very useful for swellings and inflammations since these techniques stimulate the blood flow and the good functioning of the lymphatic system.
Thermal acupressure works very well in cases of chronic disorders or very advanced diseases. The particular use of moxibustion has a positive impact on the production of white blood cells, which increases the body's defense system. The thermal massage relaxes muscle spasms and reduces inflammation in the joints.
If the patient tends to blush, suffer from rosacea or eczema, from the point of view of traditional Chinese medicine, this person is already suffering from an excess of temperature in their body, so heat therapy and acupressure will not be what is indicated for her. It is best to consult with a certified acupressure therapist.
In the traditional thermal massage, the technique of moxibustion or thermal massage is also used, also called Tui Na , which creates heat through the intense rubbing of the skin.
There are also modern techniques of thermal massage with acupressure through therapeutic stretchers that generate heat, stimulating the same points as in traditional work with thermal acupressure.
