Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self- curative abilities. One of the great advantages of acupressure is that it is safe to do on yourself, all you need are two hands and can practice it anytime, anywhere. There are great advantages to using acupressure as a way to balance the body and maintain health, it reduces tension, helps increase circulation and allows the body to relax deeply.
