Acupressure is an ancient Chinese technique used to alleviate pain and promote overall health. Acupressure uses fingers placed along neurological meridians or pathways throughout the body. Today, Acupressurists also use lasers, magnets and electric pulses. Each neurological meridian point has a specific effect and can unblock and repair the power through enhanced energy channels or chi. Through the stimulation of the neurological meridians, an Acupressurist is able to restore balance and enhanced health for the patient.
Acupressure is used to treat a wide range of health problems, such as:
- Persistent lower back pain
- Chronic tension-type headaches and migraines
- Neck pain
- Joint pain
- Postoperative pain
- Depression and anxiety
Acupressure takes a holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes, and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment.
