The ancient art of acupressure is a 5000 year old tradition originating in Asia. The idea behind the technique is that there are points on the body which can be activated to promote healing.
These points are found on every part of the body and can be used to:
- Boost the Immune System
- Release Tension
- Increase Circulation
- Relieve Stress
Acupressure is similar to acupuncture in that they use the same points of reference to heal the body. However, acupuncture utilizes needles to activate the points where acupressure used light to firm pressure with the therapist’s fingers, hands and arms.
The pressure points are found along the meridian pathways of the body. Meridian pathways are found in every animal as they are the channels of our life force. These channels, according to ancient Asian traditions, govern the proper functioning of the nervous, digestive, endocrine, vascular, lymphatic, and reproductive systems. Blockages in these channels are harmful to the proper functioning and maintenance of the body and it takes an individual trained in the art to reopen these pathways.
