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