HEALTH ACUPRESSURE POINTS
The art of pressure point therapy uses ancient acupressure trigger points to release tension and increase the circulation of the blood, heightening the body’s vital life energy to aid healing.
Acupressure uses gentle but firm finger pressure to activate the points. By applying pressure to our body’s pressure points, it can help relieve pain, establish balance, and improve health throughout the body.
An acupressure body treatment is an excellent way to rebalance your body systems and energy flow. When the blood and energy circulate properly there is a greater sense of harmony, health and well-being.
