The rules of Acupressure (part-3)

The rules of

Does the pain point change its location ?
People`s pain point is individua1 to them and is not always in exactly the same area of the point. Also pain points can change location within the point when one starts acupressure.

Can one pressure point have more than one pain point ?
In our experience we have found that this is rare but if there is more than one pain point then both should be pressed. Generally we find more than one P.P. in points 8, 9, sciatica points, and the points of the nervous systems.

What are the rules regarding the pain points ?
When we find a pain point we should press it twice as many times as we press the rest of the point. E.g. the thyroid P.P. should be pressed 70 times and the rest of the point 30 times.

What is the process in starting pressing ?
We should never start pressing our points  suddenly.  Slowly touch the skin with the pointer before applying pressure, in this way if there is unbearable pain it will be more tolerable.

What does it mean when the pain lessens ?
With regular acupressure the pain will lessen which means that the flow of bio-electricity is improving and the resulting toxins are being eliminated from the body.

What does it mean if I have no pain ?
If there is no pain, when any to the points are pressed, it generally means that you are in good health. But, for the prevention of any disease, you should press every point at least 30 times and the important ones 50 times. If time is a problem then 10-15 times per point will suffice.

What is the meaning of the perfect treatment ?
Acupressure is a natural God given treatment devised by the sages and holy men who wanted people through this therapy to perfect themselves.
Also they wanted to create and establish a connection with God thereby enabling a real physical, mental and spiritual cure. This can only be done with a full meditative concentration when pressing one's points.
When doing acupressure one should avoid being distracted. One should be aware of the pain so that on a daily basis we can start to feel the curative process at work.
When we count the number of times we are pressing a point it enables us to fully engage with the healing process. We can try and maintain this awareness by focusing on each number while we do the pressing so that the whole process becomes a meditation for the body, mind and spirit.

What problems may arise ?
If we press too quickly or too roughly we could hurt ourselves. If we injure ourselves then we should stop doing our points for a few days, and start again just using the fingers.

How much time should we spend on the treatment each day ?
This depends on the disease, dedication and time of the patient. In our experience, we have found that if a patient is very dedicated in doing the treatment, then, 1 hour 15 minutes per session should result in a good level of cure in approximately 3 weeks.
If treatment is carried out by a practitioner, it could take up to 2 hours but if it is done according to one's own disease then it should take about an hour. After 3 weeks, 40-45 minute per session should be enough.
