The best care
Similar to reflexology, acupressure is based on the Traditional Chinese Medicine theory which says that stress impedes the flow of the “vital energy” that exists in each human body. Reflexology is done mostly on the feet and hands while acupressure can be applied to all over the body.
Acupressure does not use needles or cups, but rather various massage techniques to activate or harmonise energy channels. It is good for muscular aches and pains, total relaxation of the mind and body, improve the functions of digestive and immune systems, boost circulation and more.
Some acupressure points are powerful inducers for labour, so if you are pregnant or is considering getting pregnant, consult with a knowledgeable practitioner before receiving a treatment.
Acupressure is not a substitute for necessary medical advice and/or intervention.
Acupressure in summary:
Acupressure therapy is used to improve energy flow in the body which is referred to as qui or chi in China, ki in Japan and prana in Ayurvedic Medicine.
Acupressure is believed to improve the body’s circulatory, lymphatic, immune and hormonal systems. Overall, it’s used to boost the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Acupressure is the non-invasive form of acupuncture. It does not involve any equipment and is a milder and more gentle form of energetic treatment to assist healing..
Recent studies show that acupressure point manipulation can help a wide range of health problems including chronic pain (like headaches and backaches), PMS, sleep difficulties and nausea. It’s also employed to encourage labour in pregnant women.
