Acupressure is a traditional Chinese medicine technique derived from acupuncture. With acupressure, physical pressure is applied to targeted acupuncture points of the body in order to enhance their functions, aid in a healing process, decrease muscle reflex activity, inhibit motor-neuron irritability, while promoting relaxation and general well-being.
This APP divides the common functions of acupressure into two groups: ‘Painfree’ and ‘Healthier’. The ‘Painfree’ group includes the functions on how to decrease the amount and degree of pain you may be suffering. The ‘Healthier’ group includes the functions on how to improve your overall state of health. The display icons in the APP are related to these functions as well as the locations of the acupuncture points. You can touch the screen to easily switch to what you want. This APP also provides warning notes, assistance tools and a list of suitable massage methods. You can use the “Camera” to map out, locate, and capture the targeted acupuncture point more easily.
