It is a part of Chinese medicine treatment to treat some of the conditions like back pain, neck pain, etc by applying pressure to different parts of the body known as pressure points. Moreover, Acupressure is safe and gentle.

Acupressure for Back Pain:

There are many reasons for the back pain, from posture to structural problems of the spine. Above all Acupressure can be the option that can help relieve and manage the sufferings arising out of back pain. Here are my all-time favorite pressure points for lower back pain.

Press on your lower middle back:

Known as the kidney tonification point or acupressure point “UB23″( urinary bladder) is one of the vital acupressure points for lower back pain. Stimulating this point can provide relief from lower back pain by reducing muscle tension, and it feels amazing.

Locate this point:

This point can be found on the bladder line. The bladder line is at the middle of the waist, the intermediate point between the rib cage and the hip bone, on both sides of the inner edge of the muscle group around your spine. Press this point with medium pressure and hold, or rub for 60 to 90 seconds. Repeat as necessary—if you can have someone do it for you, you’ll be able to relax into the treatment much better.

Research studies published in the British Medical Journal confirm the successful application of acupressure reliefs pain. Studies indicated after 6 acupressure treatments, participants revealed both an immediate and long-lasting improvement of their condition.

Another study at the National Taiwan University for the management of chronic back pain concluded that acupressure was effective in reducing back pain in terms of disability, pain scores, and functional status. Benefits will be seen in 6 period months.
