‘Get pregnant with acupressure’ is a simple to use application for your mobile phone or tablet that leads you step by step through a daily acupressure massage routine – one of a series of such apps aimed at specific conditions. A sequence of beautifully presented video clips uses a model to help you locate each acupuncture point with clarity. You are guided to add one new point each day in order to build up the momentum of the treatment. As an experienced acupuncturist I found the point locations to be both accurate and clear. Acupressure massage uses the same treatment points as acupuncture, and whilst possibly less effective than needle stimulation, it is a readily available tool which can be used over and over again.
Based in Germany, Dr Jakob Bargak is a medical doctor with more than 30 years patient experience. According to his website – ‘during [this] time I have always used treatment methods that help people fast and effectively without side effects’. There are numerous other titles in his acupressure series including apps for menopause, migraine, irregular periods, back pain, male sexual potency and allergy.
Each app is available for both iOS and Android, with some free and some requiring a small purchase. Once downloaded from your app store it will work offline. Do give them a try – and don’t forget to let us know how you got on. Did you find it helpful, was it easy to use?
