Acupressure is a general term, an umbrella of various methods that stimulate and balance energy in the body by applying pressure to the same points and meridians used in acupuncture. When these points are stimulated through gentle touch or massage they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body's life force (chi) to aid healing.
Acupressure can heal your body in many different ways including muscle tension and pain relief, balancing energy in the body, increased circulation, a strengthened resistance to disease, and overall wellness. It can also help with addiction recovery, chronic conditions, mental stress, fatigue, emotional issue treatment, and pain management.
