Many  new sophisticated instruments are available in the market which include a few handy instruments like-hand massager, wooden clips, rubber bands, copper wire, aluminum combs and wooden rollers with grooves along with costly instruments like fancy wooden rollers, sandals, mats etc. Actually these instruments only activate the organs but not in diagnosis of the disease.

Acupressure is beneficial, but it should never be taken as a substitute for medical consultation, advice and supervision. Similarly, before or while giving an acupressure treatment, there are certain precautions to be kept in mind. 


Precautionary Methods:

  • Acupressure should not be performed on people suffering from diseases that could get aggravated by use of external force. For instance, people suffering from internal bleeding, ulcers, duodenal ulcers, hemophilia, etc. 

  • People suffering from contagious diseases like measles, whooping cough, malaria, etc. or any other disorders involving organs such as heart, liver, kidney, lung, or cancer, sarcoma, infectious diseases, broken bones etc. should not be treated.

  • While performing acupressure on a person, it is advisable to know the person's background through consultation, physical examination and other tests and diagnosis. 

  • One should not stimulate relief points more than required, just for the sake of getting more relief, as it may result in the production of toxins which can make the body system weak.

  • Acupressure should be avoided by pregnant women unless recommended by a physician.

  • Treatment should not be given if the person is feeling hungry or has had a big meal. Usage of sharp objects should also be avoided. The delicate area around the eyes should be treated gently.

  • Alcoholic drinks as well as sour and iced foods should be avoided during and immediately after the treatment.
