What is acupuncture?
For thousands of years the Chinese and other Eastern peoples have used acupuncture to restore, promote and maintain good health.
Acupressure is a massage technique, part of the ancient Chinese art of 'Tui Na', that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities – ideal if you want the benefits of acupuncture but without the needles. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of Blood and Qi to aid healing. The advantages of using acupressure, along with other non-invasive techniques such as 'cupping' and 'moxa', include relieving pain, balancing the body’s energy and maintaining good health.
