Acupressure treatmentAcupressure is an ancient therapy based on acupuncture points. However, instead of needles, it uses gentle to firm finger pressure. 

In acupressure, restoring and balancing energy is done by pressing on specific acupuncture points with the thumb.

Emotional stress and trauma tighten the muscles and make them harder, more stiff and painful, usually in the neck, shoulder and back areas. This pattern disturbs the free flow of energy and can cause physical and emotional imbalances. It is important to understand this process in order to find the right way of treating it.

The patient must consider that chronic and more severe problems and disorders take time to treat.

Although one session may give some pain relief, in most cases it will not solve the problem, but can only show that there is an alternative way to deal with pain and stress.

The aim of acupressure is to release blocked energies that are vital to the body's immune system and overall well being.

Some of these techniques patients can learn to use by themeselves.
