Acupressure therapy relieves tension and stress
Acupressure therapy uses the power and sensitivity of the hand to relieve extra tension in your muscles and increase your circulation to reduce stress and leave you feeling completely relaxed.
Acupressure releases tension and increases blood flow, allowing your body to feel soothed and full of energy. Some people get confused between acupuncture and acupressure. Acupuncture and acupressure are the same, except that acupuncture utilizes needles, while acupressure utilizes gentle yet firm pressure. Acupressure points relieve pain and promotes wellness by relaxing the body and relieving stress from every day life.
Tension can concentrate around your pressure points, which is also called trigger points and acupoints. When a muscle spasms or becomes tense, the muscles contract due to lactic acid caused by fatigue, trauma, stress factors, chemical imbalances, or poor circulation.
While an acupressure point is held, the muscle tension yields to the finger pressure, enabling the muscle fibers to elongate and relax, blood to flow freely, and toxins to be released and eliminated. Increased circulation from relieving stress also brings more oxygen and other nutrients to affected areas. This increases the body’s resistance to illness and promotes a longer, healthier, more vital life. When the blood and bioelectrical energy circulate properly, there is a greater sense of harmony, health, and well-being.
