Health at your fingertips for all common ailments
What is acupressure?
Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’’s self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote circulation of blood and the body’s life force to aid healing. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same points, but acupuncture uses needles while acupressure uses the gentle but firm pressure of hands (and even feet).
What can it help with?
Acupressure can help relieve headache; neck, upper and lower back pain; eyestrain; sinus problems; arthritis, joint and muscle pain; stress related tension and anxiety; indigestion, constipation, ulcer pain and menstrual cramps;and can help healthy sleep.
Acupressure point therapy is combined with various western style massages (Swedish / Californian / sensitive / sports), as well as with organic essential oils, to create Acupressure Oil Massage.
