Acupressure for Health

Am I correct in assuming your 30 minute program
includes acupressure for all parts of the body?
I saw a demo of this on my mother's "Tai Chi for Seniors" video. It seems helpful although I only did it once.

Also, it true that there are hardly any people in China using wheelchairs? A Chiropractor I know is studying acupuncture to use on both her human and animal patients told me this was something she learned in her studies. Really?

Thanks for your help.

Acupressure for Body, Mind, Spirit
by: Matthew Scott

Hi, thanks for your question about acupressure techniques in my holistic health and exercise programs. There are 3 acupressure points in the Chinese Long Life Exercise Program, and another 5 acupressure points in the programs for Sleep, Headaches, Colds and Neck.

These 8 acupressure points are VERY commonly used in acupuncture and acupressure for improving overall physical, mental and emotional health AND for treating common health complaints like headache, insomnia and the common cold.

In addition to acupressure, the programs contain 6 self-massage techniques - 3 for face and head problems like headache and blocked nose; 1 for stiff neck and shoulders, 1 for the lower back and kidneys and 1 for the abdomen. Like acupressure, self-massage is a simple yet highly beneficial way to improve and maintain good health - physically, mentally and emotionally.

If you ever come to China you'll see people in parks EVERYday tapping, slapping and pressing acupressure points on their body and doing self-massage - along with stretching, strengthening and breathing exercises as part of their daily exercise workout.

Regarding wheelchair use in China, sorry I have no reliable knowledge of this.

Any further questions about the acupressure, self-massage techniques or exercises in the Long Life Exercise Program or other programs please post them.

All the best,
