What are Clinical Acupressure and Process Acupressure?

acupressure therapistClinical Acupressure is a natural pain relief technique utilizing finger pressure on acupoints on the meridians throughout the body to promote and enhance the body’s own self-healing and harmony. Often called “acupuncture without needles” this treatment is based on the ancient principles of acupuncture, and regulates and balances the body’s system. This therapeutic technique releases blocked energy and enhances the balance of energy, thereby relieving pain, tensions and toxicities in the body. This technique is used for musculoskeletal disorders to decrease discomfort and improve overall function.

Process Acupressure also uses finger pressure on acupoints along the body to promote better health and renewed energy but goes to a deeper level, linking body, mind and soul. This treatment utilizes a “whole person” approach which involves the individual in their own healing and growth process. It takes the patient through a journey of discovering the root of their discomfort and honors the body’s readiness to release, heal, and change. Reflecting on the source and root of the issue can lead to growth and further opportunity to heal from within.
