How Does Acupressure Work?
Acupressure, an ancient healing art, uses the pressure to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they help relax muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body's life force to aid healing. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same points, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses the gentle but firm pressure of the hands or feet, or use the blunt spikes of acupressure balls or mats.
What Does Acupressure Do?
While Acupressure isn't a cure-all, there are advantages to using acupressure as a way to balance the body and maintain good health. The healing touch of acupressure helps reduces tension, increases circulation, and enables the body to relax deeply. By relieving stress, acupressure strengthens resistance to disease and promotes wellness.
