Acupressure is the application of pressure to specific points on the the body (acupressure points). The acupuncturist may use it during a treatment on particularly sensitive areas instead of using needles. Also by applying pressure on an approriate point, you can use acupressure techniques as a simple and effective way of treating yourself or a family member, partner or friend. It can be perfect to supplement acupuncture sessions or used on its own. Acupressure techniques can be used to help :-
– relieve the discomfort of headaches.
– relieve digestive problems.
– for stiff muscles in the neck or shoulders.
– treat a range of ailments experienced during pregnancy and labour.
