Acupressure Basics

Acupressure is an ancient healing modality whose therapeutic roots stem from
ancient forms of Chinese medicine.
Since the beginning of time, humans have realized that when certain areas of the body are pressed, massaged, or needled symptoms were reduced or even eliminated. We instinctively touch where we are in pain or discomfort. Acupressure works by improving the flow of vital life force energy (qi) though the body, which activates the body’s self-healing mechanism. 

Merina Ty-Kisera acupressure specialistThe ancient Chinese had the ability to see "lines of light" in the body that had energy running through them. What resulted was the meridian system in Chinese medicine.  They could also 'see' points on those lines where more energy, Qi,  was gathered and which ones were blocked. These gathering points of Qi came to be the acupoints we use today in acupuncture and acupressure.  When these points are stimulated the energy is unblocked and the meridian flows freely, relieving pain and activating healing on many levels.
