Acupressure

Acupressure stimulates the acupoints with the fingers rather than with needles. It may be used prior to acupuncture to enhance treatment. Acupressure alone is not as effective as acupuncture. It is part of Oriental Medicine and is best done by the true master of Oriental Medicine -: a licensed acupuncturist.

What is Acupressure?

Acupressure - a traditional Chinese medicine of the ancient healing art that uses the fingers to gradually press the key healing points that stimulates a body's natural self-curative abilities. Developed in Asia thousands of years ago, it involves applying physical pressure to pressure points on the body by the hands, elbows, and/or various devices. This procedure is effective in bringing about balance and fluid circulation in the body which relieves stress-related ailments. This is an ideal self-treatment preventative health care procedure that can boost a person’s immune system.

Acupressure is similar to Acupuncture in that they use the same pressure points and meridians, however, Acupuncture employs the use needles while Acupressure employs the use of the hands to administer gentle to firm finger pressure on those points.. When acupressure points get stimulated, it releases muscular tension, increase blood circulation, and potentially enhances a body's life force energy that aids in its healing. Acupressure therapy can be used for pain relief, fortifying the body’s sexual reproductive system, body detoxification for better health and beauty, and muscle toning of the face and back.
