Acupressure is a therapy that uses principles that are similar to acupuncture. In this alternative treatment, it is believed that ‘life energy’ flows through ‘meridians’ in the body. When physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points, blockages in the target meridians are removed, thereby promoting healing. Pressure may be applied by hand, elbow, or using various devices.

Medical studies have suggested that acupressure may be effective in managing nausea and vomiting. It may also be helpful in treating lower back pain, tension headaches and stomach ache, among other problems; however, such studies are believed to be biased by some experts.
