About Acupressure

Acupressure is often thought of as being a poor substitute for Acupuncture and yet in skilled hands can be just as effective for many of the conditions more traditionally treated by needles. It is an ancient healing therapy based on a network of meridians along which energy or vital forces pass through the body. The interruption or blockage of the vital force or energy flow results in the body becoming unwell.
