Acupressure is a form of traditional Chinese medicine; hence, you might be interested to know how to grow taller with acupressure. Acupressure is very similar to acupuncture, where needles are inserted into the body at specific points. However, in acupressure, there are no needles involved. Instead of inserting needles, the specific points in the body are massaged. These specific points are also called reflex points or acupuncture points. See, in traditional Chinese medicine, all body functions are guided by an energy flow named Qi. The main concept is that through acupuncture or acupressure the energy flow can be stimulated and also enhanced, thus improving someone’s health. At this point it must be said that scientific research hasn’t been able to reconfirm the effectiveness of acupuncture and acupressure. However, are there ways to make use of acupressure to grow taller?
Acupressure can help you grow taller in two ways:
1) General relaxation and;
2) Release of growth hormones.
Both of these ways are extremely helpful, let me show you why. Firstly, growing taller is all about lengthening your limbs. It was found that even adults can still stretch their limbs and thus grow taller by several inches. The reason for this is that both our spinal column and our legs are susceptible to certain stretching exercises. These stretching exercises are more impacting if you have a relaxed body. Acupressure can help you have a more relaxed body, which in turn benefits more from such stretching exercises. Moreover, sleeping plays a major role in lengthening your spine. As a matter of fact, it’s a very effective way to decompress your spinal column. All day long, gravity puts pressure on your spine and thus compressing it. When you are sleeping flat on your back, your spinal column has time to relax and decompress. A relaxed and healthy body, which can be achieved through acupressure, is beneficial to this process, as well.
Secondly, we have glands in our body that are responsible for releasing growth hormones. In acupressure, not only does the massage of certain reflex points help you improve your Qi flow, all of these reflex points are also connected to certain body parts. For example there are reflex points in your hands that are connected to your eyes. There are also reflex points that are connected to glands. In other words, massaging certain reflex points can stimulate your glands to release more growth hormones into the system. One such reflex point is located in the pad of your thumbs. Another one is located in your neck area. However, please consult with a physician first before you attempt to massage reflex points by yourself.
As you can see, there are ways to grow taller with acupressure. Even though they are very subtle, they can be of great support. However, acupressure alone isn’t going to increase your height. It must be used in combination with the right exercises, sleeping patterns and foods.
