Abstract: Acupressure has been practiced as a healing art for at least 5000 years that use the fingers or any blunted objects to press key points called ACUPOINTS (Energy points) on the skin to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release not only muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood but also enhances body's bio-magnetic energy to aid healing. There are 14 main meridian lines each of which corresponds to an individual organ of the body. When stimulated, the bio-magnetic energy is able to flow freely without any short - circuit through the meridians in a balanced and even way, the result is good health. If one experience pain or illness it is an indication that there is a block in the flow of bio-magnetic energy within the body. In this research article, a maiden attempt has been made to find an alternative non - pharmacological path -way to alleviate depression and anxiety disorders faced by a 54 year old male patient through a regular and continuous practice of the physical exercises including acupressure 14 points exercise combined with Simplified Kundalini Yogic (SKY) exercises for one year designed by Swamiji Vethathiri Maharishi to enhance the free flow of body's Bio-magnetic energy for a significant recovery from depression and anxiety disorders. Thus Acupressure 14 points exercise coupled with SKY exercises play a significant role in treating various physical and mental illness which arise due to hurly-burly and hustle and bustle life of the present day modern world.
