What is Acupressure?

Acupressure is an alternative medicine technique similar to acupuncture in purpose and practice. It is based on the concept of energy which flows through "meridians" in the body. In treatment, physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians leading to increased circulation throughout the body.

What Can I Expect During Acupressure treatment?

During Acupressure Services, the thumbs are used to aim directly at muscle lumps and knots in the deep layers.  The therapeutic massage utilizes qi energy to stimulate the circulation at deeper level.  Acupressure improves circulation throughout the whole body, while helping to reduce inflammation to promote the healing of the local areas of pain.

How Does Acupressure Help You?

Acupressure Therapy is effective in the relief of stress-related ailments, preventive health care for boosting the immune system, and pain resulting from swelling and inflammation. Acupressure releases tension, increases circulation, reduces pain, and develops spirituality and vibrant health. Medical studies have also suggested that acupressure is effective at helping manage nausea and vomiting, for helping Lower back pain, tension headaches, stomach ache, among other things, although such studies have been found to have a high likelihood of bias. Like many alternative medicines, it may benefit from a placebo effect.

What are the Common Uses of Acupressure?

Acupressure can be used for -

  • Beauty Treatment
  • Back Care
  • Healing Trauma & Emotional Pain
Beauty Treatment
The Chinese used acupressure points as a beauty treatment for thousands of years. An acupressure beauty treatment enhances muscle tone and increases circulation. The Heavenly Appearance and Facial Beauty acupressure points improve skin condition and the tone of facial muscles and connective tissue. This can lessen the appearance of wrinkles without drugs or surgery. After years of pulling and stretching the skin, the connective tissue is weakened, loosening the skin. Simple finger pressure on the Heavenly Appearance points, along with therapeutic facial exercises, relieves congested areas and relaxes the muscles. Thus toxins are released and eliminated, which of course benefits your outward appearance. Acupressure points release the flow of life energy, which improves both how you feel as well as how you look.
Back Care
Acupressure Therapy is highly effective for relieving muscular tension in all areas of the back. Important points are located along either side of the spine and on the upper back. For self back care, lie down on a couple of tennis balls tied in a sock. Many people especially appreciate the release of tightness associated with Lower back pain and sciatica. Acupressure, Shiatsu, Thai Massage, and self-acupressure for relieving back pain can also be an effective adjunct to chiropractic treatment. By relaxing and toning the back muscles, Acupressure makes the spinal adjustments easier and more effective, and the chiropractic results last longer. In fact, Acupressure and chiropractic treatments were originally practiced together in ancient China.
Healing Trauma & Emotional Pain
Long known for its ability to alleviate physical pain, the ancient healing art of Acupressure can also relieve emotional pain. From day-to-day pressures to life's most significant trials, emotional stress causes the body to shut down, which keeps negative feelings stuck, resulting in physical ailments and emotional imbalances. Acupressure techniques release this muscular tension and restore the flow of vital energy, making resolution possible.
