Acupressure applies the same principles as Acupuncture; to promote relaxation, restore balance and treat illness within the body caused by blocked or unbalanced meridian or energy channels.
HOW DOES ACUPRESSURE MASSAGE WORK?
Specific points that lie along the meridian or channels within the body are targeted with pressure instead of needles to restore the flow of qi (energy).
WHAT TO EXPECT?
You will lie fully clothed under sheets on a massage table in a private room within the clinic. Your practitioner will apply heat and pressure to specific points using their finger tips, palms, elbows, knees and sometimes feet in a rhythmic sequence. The treatment is performed within your comfort level and pressure can be adjusted at anytime. It is very common for patients to fall asleep during this time.
