Acupressure Effective in Helping to Treat Traumatic Brain Injury

A new study finds that acupressure, an ancient form of medicine, may be effective in helping to treat people with mild traumatic brain injury (TBI).

In acupressure, fingertips are used to stimulate particular points on a person's body, similar to those stimulated with needles in standard acupuncture treatments. The results of the study indicated a link between the acupressure treatments and enhanced cognitive function in study subjects with mild TBI.

Science Daily reports:

“The acupressure treatment type used in the study is called Jin Shin ... According to practitioners, Jin Shin acupressure points are found along ‘meridians’ running through the body that are associated with specific energy pathways. It is believed that each point is tied to the health of specific body organs, as well as the entire body and brain”.
