What is Acupressure Massage?
Acupressure has been used as an ancient Asian healing method for over thousands of years. The therapist uses massage techniques (with fingers, palms, elbows, knees, and feet etc.) to press acu-points on the surface of the body to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. The pressure on key points along meridian pathways removes energy blockages throughout the body by diffusing the toxic buildup that accumulates in the muscle tissue.
Nowadays, acupressure massage combines oriental bodywork techniques (such as Chinese Tuina, Thai Nuad Bo-Rarn, and Japanese Shiatsu etc.) with western muscular treatment. It becomes an effective and unique therapy which strives to promote wellness and vitality by restoring the body into a state of balance, flexibility and health.
