Acupressure Self-Help Overview

Here’s a guide to the acupressure self-help practices you can find on this site:

  • Acupressure Self-Help for Stress: Table of Contents — There are 11 headings on this page, with links to 51 different items. The items are distributed over the following five pages:
  • Page 1 — Movement Practices (Tui Na self massage, tracing the meridians, two qigong sequences)
  • Page 2 — Thera Cane shiatsu massage. Holding acupressure points (how to hold, plus specific points for memory, insomnia, anxiety, & more)
  • Page 3 — 15 Jin Shin Jyutsu acupressure flows (holding a sequence of points) for specific parts of the body (neck, shoulders, back, arthritis, legs, arms, headaches)
  • Page 4 — Nine pairs of acupressure points for specific conditions (upper & lower body pain, neck and shoulder tension, back pain, sciatica, cramps, arthritis, headaches). Also, shiatsu streches for specific parts of the body and acupressure point locations (both TCM and Jin Shin Jyutsu)
  • Page 5 — The body clock. Jin Shin Jyutsu: Holding the fingers, daily flows. Resources (books, videos)
  • Combined table of contents and all items on one page

More Acupressure Self-Help — I have over 100 pages of illustrated handouts that I’ve used in my acupressure self-help classes. I plan to include them on this site as soon as I can, possibly as individual blog posts, which will make the content easy to search.
