Activating the energetic channels and self healing
Acupressure uses the same principles of activating the energetic channels and self healing in the body as acupuncture, but without the use of needles. It is a great supporting treatment between the acupuncture sessions and a useful tool for self care at home when you cannot attend the sessions of acupuncture in person.
It is important to understand that acupressure is NOT an alternative to acupuncture, but a stand-alone treatment option that is useful for mild symptoms and for general health maintenance. It can also be used preventatively to boost the immune system, reduce mild and non-chronic pain and to improve sleep.
