Acupressure massage has been used for thousands of years in China with roots in traditional Chinese medicine, it employs similar techniques as acupuncture to help inspire relaxation, overall wellness and to treat any disease inhabiting the body. Acupressure does not use any needles but rather pressure points.
The History of Acupressure
Chinese medical theory describes acupressure as using special points on the body that lie along meridians in the body. Meridians are also referred to as channels and are the same energy meridians or acupoints as those targeted with acupuncture. The Chinese believe that a life force called qi (ch’i) lies in these invisible channels and flows vital energy. There are 12 major meridians all connecting and interlinking specific organs in the body making up an intricate system of communication throughout the body.
It is believed that when one of these 12 meridians is blocked or out of balance, disease and illness can occur. Acupressure massage can help to restore balance to the body.
How Does Acupressure Work?
Acupressure massage consists of the masseuse using their fingers, palms, elbows, feet, or special devices to apply pressure to acupoints on the body’s meridians. This is believed to help relieve blocked meridian channels and open to body up to healing and wellness. Several sessions or consistency is recommended for best results.
The ultimate goal of acupressure massage is to restore health and balance to the body’s channels of energy, even the mind, emotions and spirit are believed to benefit from acupressure massage.
