Dr.Neeraj Mehta profile Authored by Dr.Neeraj Mehta on 4 Dec 2015 - 17:26.


ACU Yoga or Acupressure and Yoga are an integrated combination of two ancient holistic methods of maintaining good health. 
Acupressure releases the tension on muscles and toxins by pressing the several meridian (energy) points which exist at various points on the body.

In Yoga, various asanas are performed along with a breathing technique to correct the body mechanism and to maintain overall health. Introduced in India by international fitness expert Neeraj Mehta, 7 years ago, ACU yoga is a technique of performing Asana with keeping the meridian points pressed.

A PhD in Human Biomechanics and Alternative Medicine and a Yoga practitioner for 35 years, Dr. Neeraj Mehta recommends ACU yoga to prevent and reverse several diseases and health problems. He has cured more than thousand people with ACU yoga and Nervo Therapy (A therapeutic approach by Dr. Neeraj Mehta to cure various diseases.)

The ACU Yoga Technique:

  • Each ACU Yoga posture naturally presses and stretches the targeted muscles, nerves and acupressure points with a breathing pattern.
  • The target is to awaken the meridian points and releasing the muscle tension and toxins from the body.
  • When the tension gets released from the points, that vital “life force energy” termed as “Prana” in Yogic terms, can flow freely in the body.

Benefits of ACU Yoga
