Acupressure is used in many cultures but originally comes from Asia and stems from the twelve-element theory and energetic system that Acupuncturists use to heal the body. Acupressure focuses on the moving of Chi by finding places within the body where the life force energy is blocked. By the use of applied and sustained pressure to these highly sensitized areas entire regions of the body are affected, relieving pain and restoring balance. This modality is preferred by most that experience it because it is powerfully effective in pain relief and is done so in a relaxing and non-invasive way.
