Acupressure is a wonderful traditional eastern therapy that has been helping people for thousands of years. In acupressure, hands, (and sometimes feet), apply physical pressure on the surface of the skin to the body's 365 acupressure points. This pressure stimulates circulation to release muscular tension and helps the body to relax, releasing endorphins and oxytocins, which are the body's own natural feel good and pain-relieving hormones.
There are real advantages of using acupressure to improve your health and wellbeing. Acupressure reduces tension, improves blood flow and allows your body to relax. By relieving stress, acupressure can make you more resistant to illness and help you sleep better.
