• Explains how acupressure stimulates the body’s natural healing ability

With the simple touch of your fingertips you can quickly and easily bring comfort and relief from pain and illness. In this illustrated guide to acupressure for self-care and care of your loved ones, Roger Dalet, M.D., shares step-by-step treatment protocols for more than 100 diseases and disorders—from illnesses such as cold, flu, or digestive upset to chronic conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, thyroid disorders, and heart problems to nervous system and mental health disorders such as depression, epilepsy, and bipolar disorder.

Exploring how acupressure works, the author explains how massaging specific healing points stimulates the body’s own natural healing ability. Within each treatment protocol, he offers guidance on how acupressure can best help the situation—whether it is capable of completely curing a condition or whether it should be used to support other healing modalities. In addition to detailed diagrams of the commonly known and prescribed acupressure points, Dr. Dalet includes important new acupoints discovered by contemporary Chinese medical researchers that address ailments resulting from our more sedentary lifestyles and use of computers, such as obesity and eye strain.

A valuable resource for any home, the acupressure treatments presented in this handbook can provide immediate relief for pain and injuries as well as be used preventively. Most important, they offer an effective method of self-care and a way to provide comfort and relief to ailing loved ones and especially for the delicate immune systems of children.
