What are the pressure points on the body?
The American Heart Association has distinguished 11 known pressure points on either side of the human body. In diagnosing Fibromyalgia, doctors check eighteen specific points on the body, if the patient has eleven of the eighteen causing them pain, then they are diagnosed as having fibromyalgia.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has defined hundreds of points on the body, though less than 100 are used in regular therapy.
There are also what are called endangerment points that are in areas that have nerves and blood vessels. These areas require special training in order to use them therapeutically or as a form of self defense.
There is no way to know how many pressure points are in the body.
Pressure points differ from each person. A muscular person would be more prone to pressure points than an obese person, and just striking or holding a pressure point might not be enough.
Self-defense Answer A pressure point can typically be found at any space between bones.
When a person is severely cut and begins to bleed, it is time for quick action. First air for severe bleeding involves applying pressure over the wound. Sometimes it is possible to press the artery above the wound against the bone behind it, and stop the bleeding. This place is called a pressure point. A pressure point is also an excellent location to take a person's pulse.
Understanding Pressure Point Strikes:
Striking to a hyel does not necessarily immediately knock a person out or cause a body part to become instantly numb, as has been propagated by many martial arts charlatans. Self-defense may be understood by the analogy of a body part that has fallen asleep, when proper circulation has been cut off from it.
When applying forced pressure to specific hyel, your goal is not to magically tender your opponent lifeless. What you are planning to achieve is both short term and long term interruption of your attacker's energy. A listening carefully pressure point strike is initially accomplished by focusing your energy.
The Important Pressure Points for Hemorrhage:
The loss of a small amount of blood will cause no problem for a healthy adult, but loss of one liter or more of blood is life-threatening. The first step to control bleeding is the application of direct pressure to the wound using a clean cloth. An assisting person should wear gloves to protect from blood-borne diseases. A bleeding extremity should be elevated above the level of the heart. In cases of severe, persistent bleeding, application of pressure where a local artery can be pressed against a bone slows the bleeding. The most important of these "pressure points" are the following:
- The facial artery, which may be pressed against the lower jaw for hemorrhage around the nose, mouth, and cheek. One can feel the pulse of the facial artery in the depression about one inch anterior to the angle of the lower jaw.
- The temporal artery, which may be pressed against the side of the skull just anterior to the ear to stop hemorrhage on the side of the face and around the ear.
- The common carotid artery in the neck, which may be pressed back against the spinal column for bleeding in the neck and the head. Avoid prolonged compression, which can result in lack of oxygen to the brain.
- The subclavian artery, which may be pressed against the first rib by a downward push with the thumb to stop bleeding from the shoulder or arm.
- The brachial artery, which may be pressed against the arm bone by a push inward along the natural groove between the two large muscles of the arm. Hand, wrist, and forearm hemorrhage will be stopped by this pressing.
- The femoral artery, which may be pressed to avoid serious hemorrhage of the lower extremity.
It is important not to leave the pressure on too long, as this
may cause damage to tissues, including nerves supplied by arteries
past the pressure point.
Um, another good question. Well there are a lot of them so it depends on the person you are striking and how precisely you hit their pressure point. For example there is one called ''stomach point nine'' you have to hit this point with your finger with over 20 pounds of force to activate it properly.
There are many pressure points on a person there are gates way and pressure points. It is good to know one from the other. There are 16 main pressure point in your chest two of them are right under your collarbone if you press a inch & half you will find it in the whole body 187 pressure point & 26 gate ways
They are called the pressure points. These are the same as those used in Acupuncture, energy points that are part of the meridian system (lines of energy that run through out the body) It is possible to measure and track these throughout the body using scientific methods, but through training it is also possible to sense the meridians and pressure points with the finger tips and thumbs

What many people refer to as pressure points are also referred to as trigger points, tender points, knots, acupressure points, or reflexology points. They are all slightly different, but are closely related. They are located all over your body and generally follow lines. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) these lines are called meridians, channels, or vessels. In Traditional Thai Massage they are referred to as sen sib lines. Many of the points are used for…

Temporarily Paralyzing Someone Places exist on the body called pressure points. Pressure points can be used to cause temporary paralysis, but it can also result in permanent paralysis or death.

Even with proper training, there is no guarantee that permanent paralysis or death will not result from this method.
