Acupressure is a Chinese medicine technique derived from acupuncture. In acupressure, physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points with the hand or elbow that stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. When these trigger points are pressed, they release muscular tension, and promote circulation of blood, and the body’s life force energy to aid healing.

Acupuncture and acupressure use the same pressure points and meridians, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses gentle to firm pressure and integrates bodywork therapies, therapeutic touch, somatic work, healing imagery, energy psychology, and massage therapy techniques.

The advantages of using acupressure include maintaining your good health by relieving pain and balancing the body’s energy. Acupressure’s healing touch reduces tension, increases circulation, and enables the body to relax at a very deep level.
