What is acupressure?

Acupressure is an ancient healing technique and applies the same principles as acupuncture to stimulate your body’s natural healing power. However, unlike acupuncture which uses needles, acupressure is applied by hand and follows your body’s meridians to find and apply gentle to firm pressure to your acupoints.

The goal of acupressure is to restore health and balance to your body’s channels of energy and to regulate energy forces.

Conditions treated include:

  • Women’s health
  • Chronic and acute pain
  • Anxiety, stress and depression
  • Migraines
