(NaturalNews) Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a science dating back thousands of years. This medical science is based on the understanding of the energetic make up of the body. It classifies all the organs and functions of the body into a manifestation and interaction of 5 basic energies, which are wind, heat, humidity, dryness and coldness. These energies flow through their respective meridians (energy channels) all over the body. There are specific points on these meridians through which these energies enter or exit the body. Diseases are caused as a result of imbalance in the energies of the body, and this imbalance can be corrected by application of pressure at these specific points on the body which are the gateways of the five energies. Pressure is applied for 3 to 5 minutes with your finger or a blunt object, which activates these points and balances the energies.

There are 10 golden points out of more than 350 which are the most important for preventing and treating all illnesses.

The 10 golden acupressure points are:
1.Stomach 36 (ST 36): This is the 36th point on the stomach meridian. It balances the digestion power of the body. According to TCM, diabetes begins with increase of stomach fire. So this point can prevent diabetes. It can also prevent aging and weakness for which it is commonly used in China. Locally good for arthritis.

2. Large intestine 11 (LI 11): 11th point on the LI meridian which is one of the best for improving immunity and persistent infections. Also used for elbow stiffness.

3.Large intestine 4 (LI 4): This is one of the best analgesic points for any type of pain, for e.g. headache, body ache etc. It is very helpful to clear excess heat in the body which causes nose bleeds, fevers etc.

4. Urinary Bladder 40 (BL 40): This point is very useful in back pain, lumbago and knee stiffness in arthritis. Lower back pain is a common problem for which this is a panacea.

5.Liver 3 (LIV 3): This is the best point for hypertension, insomnia, diabetes and painful breasts. By regularly pressing this point one can get rid of hypertension for good.

6.Gallbladder 34 (GB 34): This point controls the wind rising up to the head that causes insomnia, migraine and anxiety. Also prevents gallstones and is used for swollen knees due to arthritis etc.

7.Lung 7 (LU 7): This is a very good point for relief in asthma, breathlessness and migraine.

8.Heart 7 (HE 7): This point balances all the emotional issues in the heart and harmonizes its function.

9.Spleen 6 (SP 6): Massaging this point improves digestion and relieves feeling of distention after having food which many people experience. It nourishes the spleen and increases blood production. It relieves feeling of heaviness and tiredness.

10.Kidney 1 (KID 1): This point is very important for the elderly. As we age the kidney grows weaker according to TCM and its fire dwindles. Along with acupressure, warm this point with any kind of heat or immerse feet in warm water for 15 minutes daily.

Acupressure is best avoided on empty or full stomach. Pressure can be applied on these points 30 min after meals. SP 6 and LI 4 should be avoided during pregnancy. Thus, regular application of pressure on the above mentioned 10 acupressure points is very good for maintaining overall health of body and mind.
