Acupressure is the practice of applying pressure to specific points on a person’s skin. An ancient Chinese practice is based on the theory that qi, or energy flow, travels through pathways connected to more than 2,000 points in our body. Practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine believe that the flow of energy directly affects our well-being. When properly balanced, our chi flow will promote health. When our qi is unbalanced or absent, we can suffer from various diseases as a result. It is the qi imbalance that leads directly to sleep problems or other bodily problems that disturb sleep as a side effect. It is believed that stimulation of certain points in the body corrects the flow of energy and ultimately cures diseases.
