Acupressure is based on acupuncture, one of the oldest and highly developed healing systems in the world. Acupressure uses thumbs and fingers rather than needles to stimulate and balance the “meridians’ or energy pathways that run through the body and help govern the functions of cells, tissues and organs.
Each meridian has several ‘points’ along it that may be stimulated by needles or finger pressure. These meridians effect how every part of our body works. Whether the ailment is a cold, tennis elbow, or a problem with an internal organ, acupressure treatments can bring a variety of benefits.
