Discomfort to Calm: Acupressure for Alleviating Heart Pains


Heart pains, often called angina, result from reduced blood flow to the heart muscle. Causes include coronary artery disease, stress, and physical exertion. Symptoms vary from tightness or pressure in the chest to radiating pain in the arms, neck, or jaw. Treatment includes medication, lifestyle changes, and sometimes procedures like angioplasty. Immediate medical attention is crucial for severe or persistent symptoms. Acupressure can help to bring relief.
