Acupressure

Acupressure is one of the widest practiced Holistic Medicines.

Acupressure goes back for more than 5,000 years in China where it is surmised that the practice of applying pressure to strategic points in the body that is also used for acupuncture was actually a derivation of ancient acupuncture techniques (possibly because even then there were people that were afraid of needles). Today Acupressure is a widely practiced Holistic Healing methodology and philosophy and Acupressure has possibly overtaken acupuncture in scope of use and application.

It is assumed that Acupressure spread from there to Japan (where the Japanese version of Acupressure art is called Shiatsu) and to India.

Acupressure works on the assumption that there are many Acupressure pressure points along Meridians (lines of energy flow through the body) where this flow of energy can be manipulated to modulate the rate of flow to bring the body into harmony. This energy, known as Qi, is manipulated by applying pressure at strategic points along its path of flow to harmonise it and maintain the equilibrium of this energy or Qi.

Some Acupressure therapists also believe that Acupressure releases lactic acid and other toxins from muscle tissue, ridding the body of substances that interferes with harmonious efficiency. Others focus only on the flow of energy, believing that once Qi is in harmony the body will follow.

Typically in Acupressure the following problems are addressed:
Stress
Psychological problems
Depression
Impotence
Asthma
Muscular pains
Headaches
Arthritis
