Acupressure is form of healing using the fingers or electrical stimulator to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body's natural healing abilities. Pressure on these points with the use of fingers or electrical stimulation release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body's life force to aid healing. Acupressure utilizes the same points as acupuncture but does not employ needles. The healing touch of acupressure reduces tension, increases circulation, and enables the body to relax deeply. By relieving stress, acupressure strengthens resistance to disease and promotes wellness. I incorporate acupressure in with massage and triggerpoint therapy to enhance their healing benefits.
