Acupressure is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) healing art that uses the fingers and other parts of the body to skillfully press key points, to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities.


Both in acupuncture and acupressure the same pressure points and meridians are used, but acupuncture uses needles, while in acupressure gentle to firm pressure is applied using hand, elbow, or with various devices. Pressure on these trigger points release muscular tension, and promote circulation of blood, and the body's life force energy to aid healing. Acupressure is effective in relieving pain, balancing the body, and maintaining good health. Studies have shown that acupressure massage provides some long-term benefit for low back pain. Acupressure's healing touch helps to decrease tension, improve circulation, and relaxes the body. Relief of stress increases a person’s resistance to disease and promotes health.
