Why you should read this book

When health is absent…
Wisdom cannot reveal itself

Strength cannot be exerted
Wealth is useless and reason is powerless

  • Heraphilies

Without our health, we have nothing, and there is a great deal we can do to keep ourselves and our families healthy. With the advent of modern-day medicine and an emphasis on rigorous scientific research we now have available to us an abundance of knowledge about the right foods to eat, the importance of physical activity, and the ways in which we can keep ourselves well psychologically (i.e. relaxation, meditation, changing our thought patterns etc.). Modern medicine has not only saved billions of lives it also helps us to maintain a good quality of life by offering ways (e.g. medicines) to treat everyday physical ailments.

Whilst we are indebted to modern medicine, there exists a whole ancient healing tradition that came before which has been used and refined over thousands of years to successfully prevent and treat physical ailments. These methods aim to promote the body’s own natural healing mechanism and keep the body in harmony and balance. There is a great deal of value in these ancient methods that can be usefully be bought into the present day to promote health and wellness. One of the simplest and most effective of these is acupressure, the subject of this book.

This book is an easy-to-follow practical guide to acupressure. It describes the acupressure technique, how it is believed to work and demonstrates how to apply the technique for common physical ailments. It also provides a basic overview of the science behind acupressure and the research that demonstrates its effectiveness.

This book can be useful without reading the whole book. The reader can simply jump to the issue/area of concern in the contents page and view the relevant images and video material. This book is the result of thousands of hours of practice and study related to acupressure. I hope you find value in the techniques, in helping yourself and your loved ones.

Guided Relaxation Exercise For Chronic Pain

Just about everyone feels pain from time to time. When you cut your finger or pull a muscle, pain is your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. Once the injury heals, you stop hurting.

Chronic pain is different. Your body keeps hurting weeks, months, or even years after the injury. Doctors often define chronic pain as any pain that lasts for 3 to 6 months or more.

Chronic pain can have real effects on your day-to-day life and your mental health. But you and your doctor can work together to treat it.

What Makes You Feel Chronic Pain?
The feeling of pain comes from a series of messages that zip through your nervous system. When you hurt yourself, the injury turns on pain sensors in that area. They send a message in the form of an electrical signal, which travels from nerve to nerve until it reaches your brain. Your brain processes the signal and sends out the message that you hurt.

Usually the signal stops when the cause of the pain is resolved — your body repairs the wound on your finger or your torn muscle. But with chronic pain, the nerve signals keep firing even after you’ve healed.

Which Conditions Cause Chronic Pain?
Sometimes chronic pain can begin without any obvious cause. But for many people, it starts after an injury or because of a health condition. Some of the leading causes include:

Past injuries or surgeries
Back problems
Migraines and other headaches
Arthritis
Nerve damage
Infections
Fibromyalgia, a condition in which people feel muscle pain throughout their bodies
Symptoms
Chronic pain can range from mild to severe. It can continue day after day or come and go. The pain can feel like:

A dull ache
Throbbing
Burning
Shooting
Squeezing
Stinging
Soreness
Stiffness

Sometimes pain is just one of many symptoms, which can also include:

Feeling very tired or wiped out
Not feeling hungry
Trouble sleeping
Mood changes
Weakness
A lack of energy

The guided exercise below will help you manage chronic pain.

Our Marriage Q&A – Real Talk – Helpful Advice for Young Couples – 7 years Anniversary Special

The biggest contributor to happiness in your life is your relationships and our partners are the closest relationships we have in this world.

Our 7 year anniversary recently passed and we wanted to do another marriage Q&A to share what we have learnt so far. We are hoping that our experiences may help other couples who are just starting out in their marriage journey.

The dynamics of each relationship are different and what works for us may not work for you.

Being Sikh, young professionals, having our own baggage and being new parents all add layers of complexity to our relationship. We are trying our best and have made it this far but are still struggling and taking each day as it comes.

This is advice based on our experience but if you’re going through challenges we hope this real talk helps you and makes you realise it’s normal and that you benefit from our experience and do things better than us.
