According to an old Japanese legend, a father gave his son an extremely valuable knowledge that he has learnt from his own father.
He revealed the secret about a point which can lead to longevity, as it can prevent a hundred diseases. The son followed his father’s advice and regularly massaged this point on his body.
As his father claimed, this practice has helped the son live long enough to see the birth and death of many emperors.
Our body contains 365 points and 12 major meridians, the same in number with the days and months in a year. Acupressure is based on the system of these meridians and channels, and their link to different body organs. Acupressure includes the technique of pressing certain points of the body with the fingers.
