What is Acupressure Massage?
Acupressure is a gentle, yet extremely powerful form of bodywork.
It works with the energy systems of the body, which profoundly affect our physical health, our emotional state, and our spiritual wellbeing. By creating flow and harmony at the energy level, acupressure also brings deep relaxation and healing to our bodies, our emotions and our spirit.
It does all this purely through sensitive, skilled finger pressure at various points on our body.
These points are located along the energy channels, or meridians, and are the same as those used in acupuncture. The finger pressure allows blocked energy to flow, and harmony to return to our body’s energy system.. As balance returns, we usually feel immediate relief of our pain or discomfort, and long term healing is also initiated.
Energy Acupressure massage effect is..
* Activates the Bio-Energy-Meridian System to co-operate body’s healing resources, and Arouse one’s intrinsic resistance to pathological challenges.
* Stimulates Acu-points to inhibit the pain signals sent to the brain and spinal cord replaced by a mild, pleasurable sensation to reduce pain impulses.
* Directs the extra flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients to the affect area to release accumulated tension & toxins, and speed up the healing process.
* Triggers the production and releasing of the body’s neurochemical responses-endorphins to relieve pain.
During a session..
During a session, you usually lie on a massage table fully clothed. The practitioner will ask you about your symptoms, and also take your pulses – acupressure recognises twelve different pulses at the wrists. Using all this information, the practitioner then creates a treatment that is uniquely crafted to the particular energy imbalances that are related to your symptoms.
When our imbalances are relatively recent, then treatment can usually restore balance quite quickly. But when our imbalances have lasted for a long time, and we find ourselves with chronic illness, then treatment can take longer to restore health. Yet even with chronic conditions, we usually notice improvements after as few as one or two sessions.
As we can see, while acupressure is called bodywork, the body is merely the place where we begin. As energy begins to balance and harmonise, all levels of being are impacted, not just the body, but also emotions, mind and spirit. All these aspects are intimately intertwined, and all find health through the magic of acupressure.
