What is Acupressure?

Acupressure (a blend of “acupuncture” and “pressure”) is a technique derived from acupuncture. In acupressure physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points by the hand, elbow or with various devices.

How does Acupressure work?

The purpose of acupressure is to stimulate the body’s own recuperative powers by stimulating the various points on the body. The stimulation removes energy blockages by diffusing the toxic build up that accumulates in the muscle tissue. The accumulation of toxins causes stiffness throughout the body. Stiffness in muscles puts abnormal pressure on nerves, and blood and lymph vessels. The pressure on blood and lymph vessels affect both skeletal systems and internal organ functioning.
