Acupressure had it's beginnings 4,000 years ago in China. The Chinese observed that when touching particular points on the body, a certain effect would occur every time. These points used in acupuncture lie along channels called "meridians", which run through the body along specific lines.
Flowing through the meridians is the energy of our life force. The Chinese discovered that this energy must flow evenly through the meridians to maintain good health. They then matched symptoms and the meridian system with the external elements around them (cold, wind, damp heat and summer heat) and developed their system of medicine.
This ancient art originated in the Far East and has evolved over many centuries. It is now actively practiced around the world and is recognized as a highly effective and natural way to relieve pain and stimulate healing.
Acupressure focuses on the essence of energy flowing through our bodies and the amazing result achieved by stimulating points along seemingly invisible meridian lines.
Research studies and practitioners from around the world have found acupressure to be effective at alleviating or improving a wide variety of health conditions including: headache, stress, back pain, sinus problems, toothache, facelift, appetite control, sexual enjoyment, PMS and many more.
