Using an understanding of the meridian system, acupoints are pressed and manipulated to release tension and to promote the flow of qi (vital energy). This is a relaxing and invigorating treatment which re-energizes and brings balance to the body and mind.
We often treat musculo-skeletal pain with acupressure in combination with acupuncture and exercises. For patients who do not feel comfortable with acupuncture, acupressure in conjunction with cupping can be an alternative method to the treatment of many conditions. It can also be used as a preventive and maintenance treatment to combat many of our daily stresses.
This type of acupressure stimulates the point, causing a mild endorphin release, helping them to regain their willpower.
