We all know somebody, or at least have read about a celebrity who’s tried acupressure for weight loss or other ailment and swears by its healing powers.

So why is it that an ancient healing art that has over 2500 years worth of proven results, with over a billion faithful followers, can’t seem to gain a strong foothold in western culture?

On the other hand, Eastern culture fully embraces natural therapies, with Chinese lawmakers recently allowing TCM a bigger role in the hospital system.

Unfortunately, in Western culture, big pharma tends to strangle natural healing practices. They do this to protect their market share.

The pharma industry has spent a great deal of money convincing doctors, Universities, hospitals, and the general public.

They claim that the only way to get relief is by masking pain and disease with toxic drugs (that need to be taken for a lifetime) rather than curing the disease naturally (once and for all) at the root cause.

This problem is reinforced with the convenience of popping a pill compared to the prospect of changing one’s lifestyle, diet, or applying specific exercises.

But the natural approach to curing pain and losing weight can be cheap, quick, and easy, requiring far less commitment than going to the gym or strict dieting.

Besides using acupressure for weight loss, what else does it help with?

  • The essence of this miraculous healing modality is restoring balance within your body
  • Good health is a representation of perfect balance within your body
  • Pain and disease stem from external and internal imbalances
  • Whether it’s an external imbalance such as an accident, lifestyle choices, exposure to chemicals, or radiation…
  • Or an internal imbalance such as negative thoughts or bottled-up emotions
  • Most chronic pain and ailments can be healed by restoring energy imbalances within your meridian system via pressure points (acupoints)

The World Health Organization has cited over 100 different ailments for which acupuncture treatment and acupressure are proven to be highly effective.

Relief ranging from:

Most people have heard of the miraculous effects of acupuncture as well, but are not aware of acupressure just yet.

This ancient healing art is based on the same principles as acupuncture, but instead of sharp needles, manual finger pressure is applied. Historically, acupressure predates acupuncture.

When acupressure treatment was first developed, they did not have the technology we have today to make needles. Instead, they used their fingers, bones, or stones to apply pressure to specific pressure points.

These pressure points (acupoints) release blocked energy. This is the cornerstone of acupressure and acupuncture.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has proven that our bodies contain a flow of energy that needs to circulate. The Chinese call this energy: flow ‘Qi’ (pronounced ‘chee’). Qi is the energy force that supports all life.

The Japanese call it “Ki”, Gurus of India call it “Prana” and some Polynesian cultures call it “Mana”.

Qi needs to circulate through our bodies freely for us to maintain our physical and mental health. Qi circulates through the body via our meridian lines.

Should your energy flow (Qi) slow down in one or more of these meridian lines, or if there is a blockage in your meridian system, an energy imbalance will occur.

It’s all about energy

And if not treated, pain, illness, and disease will manifest. Chinese medicine restores the natural flow of energy by stimulating specific pressure points (also known as acupoints).

Acupoints are like little whirlpools of energy that are dotted along your meridian lines.

By stimulating specific acupoints, a burst of energy will restore the circulation of a blocked meridian. This restores balance and harmony, which accelerates the healing process.

Many studies have proven the Meridian system. But one of the most popular was conducted by French Physicians Jean Claude Darras MD and Professor Pierre de Vernejoul.

They injected the isotope tracer Te99 into the acupoints of volunteer patients and then monitored the tracer’s movements using a gamma imaging camera.

The tracers traveled along the exact meridian lines within minutes after injection. To challenge their findings, they injected non-meridian points finding that the tracers pooled up and remained in the same spot.

Interestingly, tracers flowing through diseased parts of the body slowed down dramatically or stopped compared to a fast flow around healthy parts of the meridian system.

Some skeptics dismiss acupressure citing the “placebo effect” – where 30% of people will be shown to heal in experiments when given a sugar pill instead of the “real medicine.”

However, the placebo effect has been debunked because all kinds of animals, who can’t comprehend suggestions, also respond incredibly well to acupoint therapy’s healing properties.

Electricity is also an effective means to stimulate the meridian system. Chinese hospitals combine electricity with acupuncture to achieve faster and longer-lasting relief, but the idea of electrified needles puts many people off.

The form of sound waves is another highly effective means for unblocking a congested meridian system. Most people don’t realize that everything (on an atomic level) in the universe vibrates at different sound frequencies.

When the meridian system is blocked or congested, it means that one or more of our meridians isn’t resonating at its optimum natural frequency.

Using the science of Entrainment (not entertainment), you can use frequencies to restore your meridian system to its natural state.

You have probably heard of the concept of entrainment before but not the name of it. Entrainment is defined as “a synchronization of two or more rhythmic cycles” – it’s a law of physics: when two objects are entrained/synchronized with each other, they expend less energy.

It is this phenomenon that causes:

  • Female roommates’ menstrual cycles sync together
  • Our heart rate and brain waves entraining/syncing to a hectic or a quiet environment
  • Fireflies that blink together at the same time
  • And the resetting of the internal body clock, after a very long flight
  • It doesn’t stop at biology
  • Entrainment happens with machines too, such as pendulum clocks to electric driers.
  • Entrainment can also be defined within Physics, engineering, biomusicology, hydrodynamics, and also brainwaves

Studies from Concordia University, Montreal concluded that the therapeutic use of entrainment frequencies resulted in:

  • Strong pain relief
  • The release of emotions and trauma
  • A lasting switch from negative – to positive thought patterns
  • Profound relaxation – akin to deep meditation

With after-effects extending and evolving for days, weeks, and even months after a session!

This is where it gets really interesting…

Much like electro-acupuncture, entrainment therapy can be paired with acupressure to deliver incredible results – a process that triggers the release of 4 different opioid endorphins (natural painkillers). One of these natural pain-killing endorphins, “beta-endorphins,” is stronger than morphine.

Now you can reap the incredible benefits of electro-acupuncture without the fear and discomfort of electrified needles!

Acupressure combined with entrainment therapy is perfect because you don’t need the needles. It’s safer, there’s no pain, you don’t need to sterilize needles, and you don’t need to rely on visiting a practitioner, meaning you can apply it anywhere, whenever you need instant relief.

You can expect fantastic results using either therapy (acupressure or entrainment therapy) on its own, but combining them accelerates your ability to heal and restore your body and mind. It’s called Acu-Frequency TM.

Acu-Frequency is a breakthrough in natural pain and ailment relief based on Traditional Chinese Medicine. Together with targeted sound frequencies, which modern medicine has been using for decades.
