Using finger pressure on key acu points around the body, acupressure aims to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. It can be particularly supportive for relieving pain, balancing the body’s energy and helping to maintain good health. Acupressure can also help to support the reduction of muscular tension, increase circulation and enable deep relaxation.
Many people choose acupressure as an alternative to acupuncture, with a treatment that works on the same principles but without the use of needles. Acupressure therapy can also be taught to help you self-treat. These techniques are easy to learn, simple to use and a great way to focus on your own health and wellbeing.
