The origins of Acupressure are as ancient as the instinctive impulse to hold your forehead or temples when you have a headache.
At one time or another, most people have used there hands spontaneously to hold tense or painful places on the body.
More than 5,000 years ago, the Chinese discovered that pressing certain points on the body relieved pain where it occurred, and also benefited other parts of the body more remote from the pain and the pressure point.
Gradually, they found other locations that not only alleviated pain but also influenced the functioning of certain internal organs.
This ancient healing art is used by pressing the fingers on key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities.
There are over 2000 acupressure points on the body. The healing touch of acupressure reduces tention, increases circulation, and enables the body to relax deeply. By relieving stress, Acupressure strengthens resistance to disease and promotes wellness.
