Science & Sunnah of Tasbeh (zikr): -

The main tenet of acupressure is, every organ (element) in the human body is directly related to specific points of your palm and sole. The type of relation of these points and organs has not been found yet, but it is known that there is a reciprocal transfer of energy between the points and the elements. Certain points of your palm and sole represent certain organs in the system. By applying pressure on these points the energy flow can be directed to the related element. Pressure cannot be applied haphazardly. There is a certain way of doing it. With the help of pressure the efficiency of the related element can be increased and that organ can be made disease free. How exactly does this technique work, no one has been able to find out yet; but it sure does work and there is no second thought about it.
Dr. Fitzgerald, the Founding Father of Zone Therapy, says that the ends of arteries in palm and sole get hidden due to some factors blocking free travel of the electro-magnetic waves inside our body. The pressure applied on those points allows the free movement and makes us healthy. Every organ’s respective point is present on both the palm and sole, but still the experts recommend and give more importance to the points located on the sole for the treatment of the disease.
Acupressure stimulates the body to cure itself. Acupressure is defined as an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to gradually press key healing points, Acupressure relieves energy blockages. The energy flow in your body affects everything — how you feel, how you think, and how you breathe. While negative thoughts can block your energy flow, positive thoughts can increase your healing energy. These energy blockages occur at the acupressure points.
Acupressure Therapy is renowned for its ideal for self-treatment and preventive health care by boosting the immune system, Release tension, Increase circulation, Reduce pain, Develop spirituality and vibrant health, Acupressure uses gentle to firm finger pressure in the pressure points.
