Many people are unaware of the tremendous benefits of acupressure. It's an effective non invasive technique that uses pressure on traditional acupuncture points with fingers instead of needles. In recent evidence based research acupressure has been shown to be calming, relieves pain and induces relaxation.
It's an ancient Chinese method that involves applying pressure to meridian points on the body to relieve pain. The human body has 365 pressure points and 12 main meridians that carry energy through the body. These meridians connect to the brain and the organs associate with the specific meridian.
Acupuncture and acupressure use the same point, acupuncture uses needles but acupressure at the hands of a trained therapist uses gentle but firm pressure . Acupressure deals with all aspects of a person as whole and not as separate parts. It relaxes muscular tension and balances the vital life forces of the body.
