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. To address the potential benefits of self-acupressure, a team of researchers conducted a systemic review of published data on self-acupressure for symptom management in cancer patients. The review appears in a recent issue of the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management.
