Acupressure has been practiced in Asia for thousands of years but has only gained wider acceptance in the West in recent years. Traditional Asian medicine emphasises the personal responsibility we each have for our own health.
Acupressure therapy is considered to be the 'mother of acupuncture', in that it was used as a means to stimulate the body's energy flow long before needles were used for that purpose.
Based on the same principles as Acupuncture, Acupressure uses pressure rather than needles. Acupressure works by stimulating specific reflex points located along the lines of energy which run through the body.
Acupressure is NON invasive and works without drugs and without side effects!
Acupressure is also known to be positively beneficial to health in a number of other ways – including reducing stress and tension; increasing blood circulation; aiding in the removal of toxic wastes; providing relief from head-, neck- and shoulder aches; promoting healing; increasing energy levels; and increasing feelings of well-being.
By learning how to stimulate your own pressure points, it is possible to relieve minor or moderate symptoms, and reduce the need for non-prescription drugs. Unlike drug therapy, relief is usually immediate.
