Acupressure Information

Acupressure is an ancient Chinese healing method that involves applying pressure to certain meridian points on the body to relieve pain. It has many of the same concepts as Acupuncture but does not involve needles. Acupressure balances the body's energy by applying pressure to specific points along energy channels (meridians).
According to Chinese medicine, the body transmits energy or qi (chee) through meridians or pathways in the body. The unimpeded flow of this energy is essential for a person's overall health.
These meridians start at the extremities, connect to the brain, and then connect to the organ associated with the specific meridian.
Traditional Chinese Medicine recognises over 1000 vital energy points along the meridians that run from the head down to the heels. Each point has a specific therapeutic effect on the related organ. Acupressure uses finger pressure to massage these points, and the corresponding body areas receives specific therapeutic treatment.
Acupressure is used to balance and relax the body relieving stress and tension, increase blood circulation, treat internal organ diseases, relieve internal discomfort; or to generally promote overall well-being of the body; strengthening the resistance to ill-health and disease. It can be effective in helping relieve headaches, eye strain, sinus problems, neck pain, backaches, arthritis, muscle aches, and tension.
