There have been a number of impressive researcher studies That support the efficacy of the use of acupressure and its effects on the physiology including on the brain, the heart and the nervous system. There are studies from Harvard Medical School, the Yale University School of Medicine, the
University Hospital in Vienna, St. Savas Hospital in Athens, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, which is in Boston and a Harvard teaching hospital. Research at Harvard Medical School on pain relief points such as Large
Intestine 4 and Stomach # 36 have shown that activating these treatment points cuts blood flow to key regions of the brain within seconds. Here is a slide that shows the location of Large Intestine
# 4 which is located on the back of the hand between the index finger and the thumb, between those bones in the fleshy area. In other words, if you put three
fingers between uh, and sorta in this fleshy area here, the index finger will be right on the acupressure point. The other treatment point, Stomach number 36 is is shown in this slide and it is located just below the kneecap. If you were to come to the kneecap and drop straight down, you would feel a little bump at the top of the lower leg bone. If you go to the bottom of that bump and slide just barely to the outside, you will be between the tibia and the fibula in that hollow area between those two bones and that’s the location of this acupressure point. What the researchers at Harvard found was that where there was less blood flow, the
brain wasn’t working as hard so it turned out that less blood flow to
certain areas of the brain was correlated with less pain, more blood flow to those
areas was correlated with more pain. What they found was that acupressure was
quieting down key regions the brain. So let’s take
a look and see which regions they were talking about.
Signal intensity decreased during acupuncture
stimulation to the following areas: the anterior cingulate cortex, the orbital and basil gyri, and our old friend the amygdala formation and the hippocampal complex. The researchers said that the specific brain areas affected are
involved in mood, pain and cravings. The reduced blood flow could lead to dopamine changes that
trigger a cascade effect, releasing endorphins, the brain’s natural pain-relieving and
comforting chemicals. This could explain the
usefulness of these acupoints in counter condition anxiety, trauma and distress. In traditional Chinese medicine there are 361 acupressure points. However there are an additional forty-some points that are considered extra points. The next point that I’m going to share
with you, in most texts, is considered Extra Point number 1 and it is renowned for its ability to ease anxiety in traditional Chinese medicine. The point is located right between the eyebrows. So an easy way to find this acupressure point is to put one finger on one eyebrow, one finger on
the other and then with your fingers level, your middle finger will be right on the acupressure point. You won’t be too high or too low and this is very profound acupressure point for calming and soothing the nervous system. Three different studies have shown that treatment at Extra Point number 1 has produced profound changes in
frontal and temporal EEG activity. In fact, slowing the EEG activity to levels that are similar to those of anesthetized patients. It was also found in these studies that this treatment effect was not a placebo effect. EEG activity calmed three times more at Extra Point
number 1 than it did at a fake acupressure point. And, subjective experiences of stress eased five times more at Extra Point
number 1 than at a fake acupressure point. In addition to the regular acupressure
points in traditional Chinese medicine, there is also an entirely separate group of acupressure points located specifically in the ear. These are referred to as ear
acupressure points. One of the ear acupressure points that I utilize in the Quick REMAP process is simply referred
to as the Ear Relaxation point. And it is located, if you come to the top of the ear and drop just below this little
ledge and then rotate your finger forward, you will be in the upper hollow area of the ear and on this upper slope is where the Ear Relaxation Point is located. It has been found in several
research studies at the Yale University School of Medicine that this acupressure point decreases acute anxiety, depression and stress on psychological inventory’s. Activating this acupressure point has
also been shown to lower heart rate and ease the perception of pain. The State-Trait Anxiety Inventory
is one of the oldest and most widely researched anxiety inventories in existence today. Research on this instrument has shown that it correlates with sympathetic nervous system activity. So the more the sympathetic
nervous system is aroused, the higher scores appear on the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory. Researchers at the Yale University School of Medicine have found that when the Ear Relaxation Point is
activated that it produces significant changes on the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory,
which means activation of this point is calming and soothing sympathetic nervous system. The researchers at Yale found that after
treatment at the Ear Relaxation Point, that patients
were significantly less anxious at 30-minute intervals and 24 hours after treatment and they remained calmer and less anxious even up to 48 hours after treatment. Research at the
University Hospital of Vienna in conjunction with the Vienna Red
Cross and the Yale University School of Medicine
found that treating patients at the Ear Relaxation
point during emergency ambulance transport produced significant reductions in stress and anxiety upon arrival at the hospital. In fact, they found that the patients that were treated at the
the Ear Relaxation Point arrived at the hospital more relaxed, calmer, in less pain and with less stress. Patients that were treated with a
placebo point arrived at the hospital with more
anxiety, and feeling more pain. The 4 acupoints that we have just gone over have great research backing them up and they’ve produced profound changes physiologically and emotionally in patients treated with them. That’s why I’ve chosen those four points as the first points that I work with in Quick REMAP.
Although the Quick REMAP process works with 12 evidence-based acupressure
points and four additional points, these four points that we have just reviewed are among the most powerful and they are the ones that I typically begin
treatment with. So let’s quickly review these
acupressure points one more time. The first one is located here on the back of the hand, it’s Large Intestine number 4. The next one is located just below the knee, if you come down below that little bump at the top of the lower leg bone, move just to the outside, barely sliding off the bone you’ll be at Stomach number 36. Extra Point number 1 is located
directly between the eyebrows and the Ear Relaxation Point is here in the top hollow area of the ear. So, now that we’ve become
familiarized with these treatment points, let’s now try an exercise so you can begin to experience for yourself some of the benefits that may be derived from working with the Quick REMAP process.
