Acupressure

Acupressure is an ancient form of healing that involves applying pressure to various points on the body combined with other massage techniques. It is very similar to Acupuncture (and the two are often confused), the only difference being that, with Acupressure, there are no needles involved. Acupressure is intended as a healing method, not just a relaxation tool. It was founded on the traditional Chinese belief in Qi (pronounced chi). Qi is the natural energy that flows through all living things. In traditional Chinese, it is believed that this energy creates health and well-being, and if this energy flow is disrupted in some way (disruptions can be caused by many things, including negative thoughts, tension, and more), the body will react in illness and bad health. Acupressure is used to continue the proper flow of Qi and prevent illnesses, as well as to heal and restart the proper flow when it does get interrupted. The main goal of Acupressure is to bring the body back into its natural balance and let nature continue its course. Practitioners of Acupressure not only apply pressure to some of these acupoints, they may use many other methods of manipulating them to correct the flow of Qi in a person’s body. This can include such things as rubbing, pinching, squeezing, tapping, and more.The most obvious benefit of Acupressure is the healing and relaxation that it provides, and the continuous flow of energy throughout the body. But, there are other benefits as well, and just a few are listed below:

* Relieves stress and tension

* Reduces blood pressure

* Reduces anxiety

* Increases mental and spiritual awareness

* Treats many specific disorders and illnesses

* Can help reduce labor pains

* Increases energy

* Maintains regular menstrual patterns
