Acupressure is a technique derived from the principles of oriental medicine and acupuncture. However, with acupressure there are NO needles. Instead, pressure at points around the body is applied by hand, massage device, laser light or other stimulus. Points are thought to correspond with organ or meridian pathways, or energy circuits. Stimulation of these areas has been found helpful in balancing the body's energy system, easing pain and enhancing the good health of the body. This method of treatment is a key component of NAET.
Acupressure can be beneficial for people with various complaints such as:
- Neck and back pain
- Chronic tension related headaches and migraines
- Joint pain
- Low mood, stress or anxiousness
- Poor sleep and fatigue
Acupressure is a non-invasive method of promoting normal functions and easing stresses within the body.
