Chinese have a very descriptive term for taking advantage
of a combination of two or more healing systems. They say the' patient
is "walking on two legs."
When giving an acupressure treatment, your tools are your hands, notably your thumbs and fingers, and occasionally your palms. For the most part, you will be using the balls of your thumbs and fingers, never the nails. Before administering acupressure, make sure your fingernails are clipped short, so that you do not inadvertently scratch the patients.
Work right-side and left-side acupressure points at the same time. Use fingers or thumbs to apply threshold pressure to the point. Threshold pressure is firm pressure, just on the verge of becoming painful. The idea is to stimulate the point without causing the body to tighten up or retract a the pain. The pressure doctor exert should not hurt patients. Firm but gentle is the rule.
Apply from one to five minutes of continuous pressure. Or apply pressure for ten seconds, release for ten seconds, reapply pressure for ten seconds, release for ten seconds. Repeat this cycle five times.
