Acupressure uses hands, not needles, to promote healing. Originating from the ancient Chinese Medicine practice, acupuncture focuses on stimulating key points on the body to encourage natural healing and bring both the body and mind back into balance.

Similarly, acupressure targets specific pressure points, albeit using hands for stimulation, providing relief from symptoms and promoting wellness.  This is typically repeated several times a day, depending on the specific condition or ailment being addressed.
