Acupressure • Overview

Acupressure is an ancient Chinese technique based on the principles of acupuncture, and involves the use of finger pressure (without needles) on specific points along the body.

Acupressure is a way of accessing and releasing blocked or congested energy centers in the body. Chinese cultures believe the points to be junctures of meridian pathways that carry energy called Qi. Western scientists have also mapped out and proven the existence of these points using electrical devices.

Acupressure massage therapy stimulates and activates the body’s own energies to help fight illness and restore harmony. Some of the acupressure points are significant as they relate to a specific part of the body while others are more general in their effect. Acupressure can help alleviate ailments such as 'tension, stress, aches, pains and a lot of symptoms'. Acupressure can also be used for general preventative health care.
