Acupressure is another ancient practice that uses precise finger placement and pressure over specific points along the body. These points follow specific channels, know as meridians - which are the same channels used in acupuncture.
During treatment there is elongation of the muscle fibers, which contributes to the release of toxins and waste materials within the tissues, and an increase in the circulation of oxygenated blood, thereby promoting cellular nutrition and stronger resistance to disease.
Acupressure helps to re-balance the body, promoting a reduction in emotional and psychological tensions. Acupressure can also be used to help treat many conditions including muscular aches, sinus congestion, headaches, menstrual difficulties, and discomforts associated with pregnancy and labor.
