“Acupressure… A Catalyst for Dramatic and Positive Life Changes”
Acupressure commonly referred to as Acupunture without the needles. Acupressure is a therapy developed over 5,000 years ago as an important aspect of Chinese, medicine. It uses precise points along the body. These points follow specific channels, known as meridians – the same channels used in acupuncture. According to Asian medical philosophy, activation of these points with pressure (or needles) can improve blood flow, release tension, and enhance or unblock life-energy, known in China as “qi” or in the English-speaking world as “chi.”Western scientists have also mapped out and proven the existence of this system of body points by using sensitive electrical devices. Acupressure points are places on the skin that are especially sensitive to bio-electrical impulses in the body Utilizing these points with pressure releases the block. This release allows energy to flow more freely through the meridians, promoting relaxation, restoring proper functioning allowing the body to heal itself.

During a session, you lie fully clothed on a soft massage table. The practitioner gently presses on precise points on your body using Weighted Tuning Forks. A session typically lasts about one hour. You may need several sessions for the best results.
Every client responds in their own unique way. Some clients fall asleep. Others yawn, laugh, cry, or may even experience a little twitch in their leg or arm. These are called ‘releases’ and they are all natural and welcome as your body’s energy flows and facilitates your healing.
Acupressure sessions allow the client’s body to return to a natural state of balance. For many people, the symptoms they had before the session such as pain or a headache are gone after the session. Others may experience emotional breakthroughs. Either way the session is a completely relaxing experience.
Acupressure is highly effective for relieving muscular tension in all areas of the back. Important points are located along either side of the spine and on the upper back. By relaxing and toning the back muscles, Acupressure makes the spinal adjustments easier and more effective, and the chiropractic results last longer.
Tension tends to concentrate around pressure points. When a muscle is chronically tense or in spasm, the muscle fibers contract due to the secretion of lactic acid caused by fatigue, trauma, stress, chemical imbalances, or poor circulation. As a point is pressed, the muscle tension yields to the pressure, enabling the fibers to elongate and relax, blood to flow freely, and toxins to be released and eliminated. Increased circulation also brings more oxygen and other nutrients to affected areas. This increases the body’s resistance to illness and promotes a longer, healthier, more vital life. When the blood and bioelectrical energy circulate properly, we have a greater sense of harmony, health, and well-being. Acupressure therapy stimulates the body’s circulatory, lymphatic and hormonal systems. It also helps the function of the immune system and the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
