Acupressure is an ancient healing art using the fingers to gradually press key healing points, which stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities.
Using the power and sensitivity of the hand, Acupressure Therapy is effective in the relief of stress-related ailments, and is ideal for self-treatment and preventive health care for boosting the immune system.
Acupressure releases tension, increases circulation, reduces pain, and develops spirituality and vibrant health.
Acupuncture & Acupressure use the same pressure points and meridians, but Acupuncture employs needles, while Acupressure uses gentle to firm finger pressure.
When the Meridians and acupressure points are stimulated, they release muscular tension, promote circulation of blood, and enhance the body’s life force energy to aid healing.
Acupressure therapy can be used to relieve pain, fortify the reproductive system and generally detoxify the body for greater health and beauty, and tone facial and back muscles.
