There are different reasons for female infertility, sometimes the reason is hormonal dysfunction or certain infections of reproductive organs, and many cases the exact reason is unknown. In some cases of female infertility acupressure can help. Acupressure is actually a blend of acupuncture and pressure - a complementary medicine technique derived from acupuncture. In this technique a physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points by the hand, elbow, or with various devices.
Some studies have shown acupressure is helpful in men too. However, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), including acupuncture and acupressure and other alternative treatments has received various criticisms based on scientific thinking: there is no scientific proof - no known anatomical or histological basis for the existence of acupuncture points or Meridians that represent the door to the healing. But there are also some proves that are on the TCM s side, for example: studies that are based on neuro-imaging suggests that specific acupuncture points have distinct effects that are not otherwise predictable anatomically. As said above, acupressure (acupuncture) pints can help balance hormonal dysfunction naturally by normalizing energy flow. It is known that sometimes specific psychological conditions can depress the function of endocrine system, which is in direct relation with female hormonal system. Acupressure points are located on the low back, anterior part of the pelvis and the calf. Following are the steps that could help you balance your hormones, but it is recommendable to consult certified acupressure specialist before taking following steps:
Stand relaxed, with your spine straight and shoulders relaxed. Put your right palm bellow your belly button. Very gently rub your palm on the area for approximately one minute and slowly increase the pressure to the area. Next step includes placing the pad o your thumb on the points that are located a bit higher than your waist, two finger-widths on both sides of the spine (point B123). Again, very gently press the area for additional 2 minutes. For the next minute use the tips of your index, middle, ring, and little fingers to tap the sacrum area. This is located right along the central line (points B131 - B134). Next step is includes putting both your palms on the sacrum area (located right along the central line (points B131 - B134). Using palms scrub from bottom up until you feel a warm sensation. This is called heat therapy.
