Acupressure is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine which focuses on the movement or stagnation of Qi, also know as life force. Acupressure utilizes the meridians, which are a system of energetic pathways in the body. An imbalance of too much or too little Qi in an area can create pain, tension or illness. An example of accumulation or stagnation of Qi can be neck and shoulder pain or feeling anger, while a deficiency of Qi can be experienced as feeling cold and weak or depressed.

Acupressure involves using finger pressure on Acupuncture points to balance out the flow of energy throughout the body. It can stimulate and promote the natural ability of the body to heal itself. Like Acupuncture, Acupressure has the positive effects of improving overall health, reducing the effects of stress and enhancing your overall sense of well being.

Two distinctions between Acupuncture and Acupressure are that Acupressure does not use needles and Acupressure can also have a self-care component. When I work with people individually, I particularly enjoy teaching you how to use Acupressure points to enhance and maintain your health.

I offer classes and workshops on building your own wellness self-care toolkit. We learn and practice how to use simple health exercises and acupressure techniques on ourselves and others to address common complaints such as headaches, congestion, neck and shoulder pain, nausea, stomach upsets, insomnia, depression and anxiety.

Please refer to the Calendar for upcoming classes and workshops, or contact me for individual sessions.
