Acupressure

Acupressure is an alternative medicinal technique that is a combination of acupuncture and massage techniques. It has been derived from the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture and many believe that it can cure numerous aches and afflictions. Therapists apply physical pressure instead of needles on acupuncture points of the body by using their hands, elbows, fingertips, etc. Special devices are also used to apply pressure.

This process is said to improve the flow of “chi” or energy throughout the body. Blocked points of “chi” can cause various ailments and this procedure removes these blockages and also enhances blood circulation. Some believe that this procedure increases the level of pain-relieving endorphins in the body. Patients can perform acupressure on themselves without the help of qualified therapists.
