Acupressure is a form of manual treatment within the scope of Traditional Chinese Medicine that was developed over 5,000 years ago. Acupressure is administered by a Registered Acupuncturist. The practitioner will apply manual pressure with their thumbs or fingers to specific points on the body. These points are known as acu-points or ashi trigger points. These points are often noticeably tender when compared with surrounding tissue. Pressure is then applied with the aim of increasing blood and energetic flow as well as relieving localized tension. This localized tension constricts proper flow and movement in the body, creating pain and metabolic stagnation.

No, in fact most patients find acupressure to be very enjoyable and often take the opportunity to shut their eyes and relax while the treatment is being administered.   

“Where there is pain, there is stagnation and where there is stagnation there is pain.”

-Suwen, Huangdi Neijing

When studied, acupressure has been shown to stimulate the release of endorphins that mediate pain, while also relaxing the autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system is responsible for involuntary bodily functions like heart function, digestion and breathing, relaxing these systems can slow our breath and heart rate, while stimulating digestion. This state of neural relaxation is often referred to as “rest and digest” and when we are in this state, it provides optimal healing conditions for the body by reducing stress hormones.

Acupressure is administered to:

Alleviate Pain

Treat Nausea and Vomiting

Reduce Inflammation 

Treat Migraines and Headaches

Relieve Anxiety, Stress and Fatigue 

Treat Sinus Pressure 

For many, Acupressure has become a staple in western life, if you have ever massaged between your thumb and forefinger to ease a headache or worn a “Sea Band” for nausea, you have experienced acupressure. 

Acupressure is just one of many modalities used within Traditional Chinese Medicine and is often accompanied by an acupuncture treatment or herbal therapy. Traditional Chinese medicine is not just a series of treatments but actually a lifestyle, it is a conscious effort to create harmony within ourselves, our environment, our diet, exercise and self care. It is an avenue to better health, energy and mindfulness.

“Truly the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.”

-Lao Tzu
