Practitioners in acupressure believe there are various pressure points located on the body. The points shown here are related to chronic pain and occipital headaches. By pressing and holding for several seconds, acupressure advocates believe a person can sense some relief of pain.
As a personal trainer, I not only work with women who want to sculpt their bodies, but I also work with women who are rehabbing after surgery and women with chronic pain diseases. My chronnies use this exercise to keep their pain at bay.
