Acupressure is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that uses pressure to stimulate specific points on the body to relieve pain and discomfort and promote health.
Acupressure is based on the assumption that the body has energy channels, called meridians, that transport Qi (life energy). When these energy channels are blocked, discomfort and illness can occur. By stimulating certain points along these meridians, the Qi is supposed to flow again and blockages are released.
Acupressure is used to treat a variety of ailments such as headaches, back pain, sleep disorders, nausea, constipation and anxiety. It can also be used to support rehabilitation and pain relief for chronic illnesses.
Acupressure can be performed independently or in combination with other therapies. It is important that it is carried out by qualified therapists, like Soulhouse, to avoid any unwanted effects.
