Acupressure & Bodywork
Acupressure is an over 2,000-year-old East Asian bodywork tradition that emphasizes circulation, relaxation and immune function. Based on the manipulation of energy channels in the body, acupressure is used to influence and balance the body’s functions.
What is the difference between acupressure and acupuncture?
Acupressure DOES NOT USE NEEDLES. Based on a tongue, pulse, and interview assessment, your practitioner determines the patterns of energetic disharmony in your body and promotes balanced functioning through direct pressure on specific points that promote an even flow of energy in those blocked areas. Blockages of energy and circulation create pain, so by allowing for the smooth free flow of energy, pain and other symptoms are relieved.
