Acupressure Bella Vista, AR

Acupressure

Acupressure is an alternative conservative treatment technique similar in principle to acupuncture. It is based on the concept of life energy which flows through “meridians” in the body. In treatment, physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians. Pressure may be applied by hand, by elbow, or with various devices.

Acupressure points used in treatment may or may not be in the same area of the body as the targeted symptom. The traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theory for the selection of such points and their effectiveness is that they work by stimulating the meridian system to bring about relief by rebalancing yin, yang and qi (also spelled “chi”).

These points can help relieve general muscle spasm, stiffness and muscle tightness, back pain, headache, belly ache, migraine, lightheadedness, etc.
