Live Whole Health: Acupressure

1 min read

Acupressure is the applying of pressure to specific points on the body, often used to help relieve tension and pain. It also helps the body heal the local tissue that’s being massaged. From an Eastern medicine perspective, this may mean balancing and influencing the “qi,” “chi,” or the body’s energy; from a Western medicine perspective, acupressure improves circulation, relaxes tight muscles and releases pain-relieving endorphins.
