In brief: Depends
Depends on what you mean by common diseases.
If you are referring to asthma, allergies... Yes, it can help. We believe that acupuressure and acupuncture change the behavior of the immune and hormonal systems, hence how they can help. Now, food reactions and a whole host of other problems can also lead to the same symtpoms, in which case acupressure may be less effective.

It really works for some diseases. Why it works is debatable, but it works. Sometimes you have to do what you can to help people even though you cannot prove why it works.
