Acupressure by Tim Mooney

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

Acupressure interests me greatly. Whilst I get little attacks of fatigue I have long been a user of acupuncture as a balancing tool for the body’s energy systems. Recently I rediscovered Acupressure in a dedicated book given to me by my book printer in Singapore. Simple system, stunning results.
Self treatment is possible and delivers results. One of the best points on the body for getting rid of most pain is on the hand just back from the junction of the thumb and first finger.

Don’t use this point during pregnancy

I massage this point a lot to get rid of minor headaches and general pain. It works. Try it.

Lighting plays an important part and its best to use as little as possible introduced lighting.
Always have a big glass of water with you when doing food photography. Why? Well when you get the hungers and you want to demolish the meal … have a glass of water instead … or you’ll end up the size of a bus.

Yes I’m now a statistic. Just before the October long weekend I got pneumonia and that quickly took on Swine flu as its partner.

Two weeks in hospital saw the stuffing knocked out of me and possibly injected a good dose of intolerance. Thanks to all those that carried me thru. Apologies to those that couldn’t get on to speak. TM
