Acupressure evolved from acupuncture.  It is also considered a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which is based on the philosophy of the “yin” and the “yang”. The “yin” and the “yang” are the two opposite yet complimentary forces that underlie all aspects of life.

Acupressure is the third most popular method for treating pain and illness in the world. It has helped millions of people throughout the globe and has been documented for use in treating over 3000 conditions i.e. stress, anxiety, asthma, fibromyalgia, headaches, etc

Acupressure has different techniques that are useful in diagnosing illnesses as well as curing them. Unlike Acupuncture that uses needles to stimulates the key points, Acupressure therapy stimulates through the use of pressure. It involves physical pressure by the use of hands, elbow, or with the help of different devices.

Acupressure performed by a therapist can be very effective both as prevention and as a treatment for many health conditions, including: headaches, general aches and pains, colds and flu, arthritis, allergies, asthma , nervous tension, menstrual cramps, sinus problems, sprains,tennis elbow , and toothaches, among others.  Acupressure points can also be stimulated to increase energy and feelings of well-being, reduce stress, stimulate the immune system, and alleviate sexual dysfunction.
