Acupressure therapy to improve short term memory

Acupressure therapy can help you improve your memory. It is one of those alternative therapies which can be adopted without any risk of side effects.

The rule with acupressure is if a point is tender, it will probably benefit from being pressed. Next time it should be less tender as progressively the energy clears. However some points are far more sensitive than others - S36 for example is nearly always a little bit tender, even in healthy people.
