I have had accupressure, with astounding results considering that, going into it, I thought the whole practice was ridiculous. Turns out it was the only thing capable of curing my lower back pain. There was never anything about chi or balancing energies or any of that, it was just explained as manipulating pressure points. The one for my tailbone pain was located in the uppermost portion of my inner ear, which I scoffed at, but the relief was obvious and immediate.

2 years ago, after not getting any relief of Plantar Fasciitis from traditional treatments, I visited a licensed professional provider of Acupuncture. After about 6 sessions, the plantar fasciitis was gone! I am believer in Accupressure, pressure points and chi!
Acupressure DOES work & is awesome!!! I think is it not widely accepted by western medicine because of their somewhat mystic description: "problematic symptoms by balancing and circulating body energy, or chi..." HOWEVER, my acupressurist explained to me how all the muscles connect with others. If one is tight, it can pull & cause pain elsewhere. There have been numerous occasions where I thought my back was out & I needed a chiropractic adjustment, but actually it was from overuse of another muscle which caused 'pulling & pain' in my back! How do we know that was the cause? Because after working the tense muscle, my back was fine!!! =)
