Acupressure is a safe and gentle alternative therapy used to relieve symptoms from many common disorders. Acupressure works by placing pressure on specific points on the body to release qi. Application of pressure requires precision because some 365 points are located on the major channels, plus there are over 650 individual pressure points. Similar to the circulatory system’s network of vessels, each channel has a network of connections.
People with high blood pressure and pregnant women should refrain from acupressure therapy. Acupressure is not used to treat open wounds, scar tissue, varicose veins, or areas of
inflammation or swelling. These problems can be treated with other alternate therapies.
Empower Yourself. Heal Yourself
Acupressure is closely associated with other forms of Chinese medicine, such as acupuncture and shiatsu. The philosophy of traditional Chinese medicine originated about the year 600 BC when Taoism was developed; beliefs that center on the human connection to nature.
