Acupressure is an ancient Chinese healing method that involves applying pressure to certain meridian points on the body to relieve pain. It can be used to treat most of the same conditions as acupuncture. Indeed, for people who are very sensitive to needles, or who fear needles it is treatment of choice.
Practiced for thousands of years and originating in China, acupressure is the most effective method for self-treatment of tension-related ailments by using the power and sensitivity of the human hand. It deals with all the aspects of a person as a whole: body, emotions, mind, and spirit as one, not as separate parts.
Acupressure relaxes muscular tension and balances the vital life forces of the body. Like most body work treatments, the physical effects include stimulated blood flow, increased oxygen, decrease in muscle tension, reduction of pain, increased mental relaxation and a release of feel-good endorphins from the brain.
