A pressure point is any point in the body at which a pulse can be felt, and the artery can be pressurized to stop bleeding at the distal point. Understanding the location of such points in the human body is crucial for controlling bleeding.
The practice of using pressure points falls under the disciplines of acupressure and reflexology, which study how one part of the human body relates to another. Many of the body’s most powerful pressure points are believed to be in the hands.
