Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses pressure points on the body to stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities and encourage health and wellbeing. By placing pressure on key points of the body, blood circulation is stimulated and tension is released.

The difference between acupressure and acupuncture is that acupuncture uses needles, while acupressure relies on natural pressure placed on the body by hands, or even feet. Acupressure is older than acupuncture and is the more natural method for stimulating blood circulation and releasing tension and stress as it does not use needles or electricity.

Acupressure is the most effective method of self-treatment for tension and stress. It is also the safest natural method of healing yourself and others – there are no dangerous side effects, as no drugs are used. Acupressure can be practiced anywhere, anytime just by following guidelines and using the human hand to improve health and harmony.

Acupressure can be used to help relieve and heal many ailments; headaches, eyestrain, neck pain, backaches, muscle pain, arthritis, sinus problems and tension caused by stress. Acupressure is also believed to help ease pain caused by ulcers, menstrual cramps, constipation and indigestion by encouraging blood circulation and opening up the body’s natural healing capabilities. Acupressure also relieves anxiety to encourage sleep at night.

Acupressure is a gentle treatment that will also help to balance the body and encourage good health and physical wellbeing. Acupressure will encourage natural and deep levels of relaxation that will promote wellbeing and increase immunity to sickness or disease.
