What is acupressure?
Acupressure is a therapy developed over 5,000 years ago in Asia and thought to be mainly Chinese, known as one of the Traditional Chinese Medicines. It uses precise finger placement and pressure over specific points along the body. These points follow channels known as meridians. According to Asian medical philosophy, activation of these points with pressure can improve blood flow, release tension, and enhance or unblock life-energy, known as “qi” or “chi.” This release allows energy to flow more freely through the meridians, promoting relaxation, healing and the restoration of proper function.
