According to well established ancient belief, our whole body is made of five principle elements: earth, water, fire, sky, and air. The guiding force behind these five elements is our body's inherent bio-electricity or bio-energy. According to this technique's fundamental belief when this energy starts 'leaking' from certain points, they become sick. By giving pressure on these 'leaking holes' these are plugged to restore the body's health as the Acupressure term deals with pressing the pressure points on the body hands and feet using hands.

Acupressure term deals with pressing points on the body hands and feet using hands. Though various techniques for giving pressure are being practised throughout the world but there are few basic working techniques. The use of these techniques develop an efficient sensitivity and the ability to conserve the energy by minimising the use of effort on part of therapist.
All these techniques can be used on both the feet and the hands. The amount of pressure exerted varies from individual to individual under treatment. For example, very gentle pressure should be given to frail and weak children and elderly people.
To work on with these techniques, it is equally important to hold the reflex areas properly.
It is also advised to practice these techniques first on one's own hand before dealing with the patients.
