Aupressure is an ancient healing art using the fingers to press key points(‘energy centers’ , also called ‘acupoints’) on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. When these acupressure points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force energy to aid healing. The accumulation of toxins causes stiffness throughout the body. Stiffness in muscles puts abnormal pressure on nerves, and blood and lymph vessels thus disturbing their normal rhythm and thereby bringing imbalance in the body.
Acupressure treats the body as an energy system and works to relieve person’s individual symptoms by identifying and releasing ‘blocked’, or ‘congested’ energy centers in the body. It stimulates and activates the body’s own energies to help fight illness and restore harmony. It can help alleviate ailments such as tension, stress, aches and pains, arthritis or menstrual cramps. It can also be used for general preventative health care. Migraines, insomnia, depression, toothache, dizziness, muscular tension, menstrual pain, digestive problems, constipation, morning sickness, stress, poor memory, poor concentration are some of the problems which are being helped by acupressure therapy.
