A growing amount of research indicates that acupressure, a complementary and alternative medicine technique that involves applying pressure to specific body spots called acupoints, can successfully manage symptoms suffered by cancer patients. Acupressure helps reduce cancer-related nausea, exhaustion, disturbed sleep, and discomfort, according to recent studies. The majority of the expanding corpus of literature touting the advantages of acupressure describes procedures carried out by licenced acupuncturists. We do not, however, fully comprehend the efficacy of self-acupressure, the practise of applying acupressure to oneself. A group of researchers looked through published research on self-acupressure for cancer patients’ symptom management in order to examine the potential advantages of the practise. A recent issue of the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management has the review.
