Acupressure is a method of applying varying ranges of pressure to specify points in the body that run along energy lines throughout the body called meridians. Normally, Qi (vital energy) circulates through these natural pathways in the body. Blockage of this flow can cause illness and pain. Acupressure helps to correct functional imbalances and restore the flow thus returning the body to a more natural state of well-being through igniting its own self-healing. Acupressure is an effective form of stimulation used to help relax the muscles. If done regularly, this method can sustain improvement and minimize recurrence of symptoms. It is important to be patient and consistent when receiving acupressure to receive the maximum benefits.
