What is Acupressure?

Acupressure is an ancient form of Chinese medicine that involves applying pressure to specific points on the body to relieve pain, reduce stress, and promote overall wellness. This technique is based on the same principles as acupuncture but uses finger pressure instead of needles to stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities. Acupressure points can be used to treat a wide range of health conditions, including headaches, back pain, emotional trauma, and sexual healing. By activating the body’s energy pathways, acupressure can help restore balance and promote optimal well-being. Acupressure is a natural and effective way to manage your health.

Too often, we choose to repress the warning signals of a headache by taking aspirin or another pain reliever, instead of dealing with the stress and the real cause.
