With the fast pace of modern living, people need ways to release stress more than ever before. Acu-Yoga is a powerful, practical tool that people can easily learn and use to relieve their stresses and tensions, and replace them with energy and vibrant health. Look around you and see how most of us deal with stress nowadays. Mostly what we do is avoid it or try to suppress it by overeating, smoking, drinking or using over-the-counter medications or other drugs. Of course, all of these only compound the problem.
Many physical disorders such as headaches or backaches are either caused by or worsened by tension. We have the ability to turn these "minor" ailments around, to actively work toward health. Acu-Yoga is a health practice that can benefit many physical disorders, especially problems that involve muscular constriction.
Acu-Yoga is written to serve people with a wide range and variety of experience, from beginners to health teachers and practitioners. Its aim is to show the interconnections between the ancient practices of Yoga and the traditional systems of Acupressure. It is written as a self-help manual. The first section of the Book discusses the Origins and basic principles of Acu-Yoga. The second section contains four exercise series that can be used for daily practice. The last section covers twenty four common disorders that are related to stress and tension. Each section deals with the causes and gives practical self Acupressure techniques.
