What is a Jimmy also spelled as Gimmy sometimes?
A Jimmy is a wooden stick of approximately 11-15 cm length and an average diameter of approximately 1.5 cm. Its both (and sometimes one end) are rounded off. One end is thick while the other end is usually pointed. Most/some of the length of the jimmy is serrated/grooved depending on the usage.
In acupressure therapy, a Jimmy is used like a diagnostic and treatment probe i.e., used to diagnose sensitive acupressure points but which are bigger in size.
It is also used to treat these very points. The jimmy can also be used to give a generalized massage on any part of the body.
Use: Move the rounded end of the jimmy over the search area of the body with uniform pressure. The most sensitive point will respond with a typical, sharp pain and is the acupressure point. To treat the acupressure point, press the same with the jimmy for the required length of time. Use the serrated/grooved portion along the length of the jimmy to roll over the required body part to give generalized acupressure treatment.
Precautions/Cautionary Note: Apply just adequate pressure. Sharp pressure may cause intolerable pain to the patient. Just like any therapy, knowledge and application by the right practitioner is the key. Use it at your own discretion or under the able guidance of an expert.
Acupressure is an ancient art of massage and therapy practiced in Asia. The belief and use of tools related to acupressure are completely on a user's discretion.
Acupressure is a form of touch therapy that utilizes the principles of pressure on specific points on the body. In acupressure, the same points on the body are used as in acupuncture but instead are stimulated with finger pressure or instrument/probe instead of with the insertion of needles. Acupressure is believed to relieve a variety of symptoms and pain. Traditionally, Asian cultures conceived of the points as junctures of special pathways that carried the human energy that the Chinese call chi and the Japanese call ki. Other known benefits:
Besides relieving pain, acupressure can help rebalance the body by dissolving tensions and stresses that keep it from functioning smoothly and that inhibit the immune system. Acupressure enables the body to adapt to environmental changes and resist illness. Tension tends to concentrate around acupressure points. When a muscle is chronically tense or in spasm, the muscle fibers contract due to the secretion of lactic acid caused by fatigue, trauma, stress, chemical imbalances, or poor circulation.
Precautions/Cautionary Note: Just like any therapy, knowledge and application by the right practitioner is the key. Practice acupressure at your own discretion or under the able guidance of an expert.
