In my 40 years of experience using acupressure and yoga therapy, I found that the most effective exercises and healing techniques stimulate a series of special acupressure points along the spine on both sides. These spinal points and back care exercises, detailed and illustrated in my Back Pain Pack, are therapeutic to all your internal organs. The proper use of these back acupressure points benefit your overall wellness and hundreds of health problems.

Yu Points (also known as Shu points) are the most effective treatment points on the body. I realize – that’s a powerful statement, but my 40 years of experience has shown this to be true – so I’m sharing it with you. These back points, on both sides of the spine, benefit all the internal organs.
Directions: Here’s a great way to stimulate these points and gain enormous health benefits. Place two tennis balls in a sock and tie the end with a string, rubber band or twisty, so the balls stay together. Place them on a carpeted floor and lie down gradually on the balls, with you spine between the two balls. If it hurts because the balls are hard, double a thick towel over them for padding. After lying on the balls for five to ten minutes, deeply relax laying flat on your back with your knees bent, eyes closed, and take slow, deep breaths for another ten minutes to discover the benefits.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine:
* Lower Back Problems are connected to the condition of the kidneys;
* Mid-Back chronic tension and pain is associated with the digestive system, governed by the stomach, spleen, liver, and gall bladder meridians;
* The Upper Back is related to the function of the heart (cardiovascular system) and lungs (the respiratory system).
How to do Acupressure Massage on all your Yu Points – without your hands: You can stimulate all these therapeutic back acupressure points by rocking on your spine, back and forth, over a carpeted surface. I call this acupressure technique Rock n’ Roll. If your back is flat, then roll gently from side to side. After rocking on your back for a minute or two, relax deeply with your eyes closed and take deep breaths for five to ten minutes to obtain the full health benefits.
Summary: This is a powerful, natural method of self-treatment, which I encourage you to do regularly enhancing your health on many levels. After practicing the simple tennis ball or rock n’ roll techniques regularly for over two months to stimulate your back acupressure points, I believe you’ll have remarkable health results.
