Acupressure

Acupressure is based upon the belief that you are born with a certain amount of energy, known as chi, flowing throughout the body along 12 paths or meridians. Illness is thought to occur when the flow of chi becomes blocked, or stagnant, upsetting the balance of the body and its function
Acupressure uses the application of pressure to specific areas of the skin, rather than needles.
Acupressure is used to successfully treat a wide variety of physical and emotional disorders including allergies, constipation, gallstones, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine, insomnia, varicose veins, stomach ulcers, sciatica, tonsillitis, palpitations, edema, depression, hemorrhoids, menstrual problems, cystitis, and labour pains.
