Acupressure Treatments

Acupressure is an ancient Chinese healing technique practiced by Joan Borden, MAc, Certified Acupuncturist, at the Manhattan Acupuncture Center in Manhattan, New York which consists of applying pressure to certain meridian points on the body to induce healing.

Acupressure is very different from Acupuncture in that acupressure is a non-needle variation of acupuncture involving deep finger pressure on acupoints (as opposed to needles) and is similar to Japanese shiatsu. Acupressure is rooted in the principles of traditional Chinese medicine and is used to release muscular tension, promote the circulation of blood and restore the flow of qi (the body's vital energy) along channels in the body.

In many traditional Asian medical philosophies health is considered to be a state of balance in the body maintained by the flow of life energy along specific meridians. Disease is believed to occur when there is blockage in the flow of energy or when energy flow is deficient or in excess creating patterns of disharmony.

Acupressure aims to restore normal flow of energy by the method of finger pressure, palm pressure, stretching, and other established acupressure techniques. As an acupressure point is pressed tension is thought to surrender to the pressure allowing blood to flow more freely and toxins to be released and eliminated.

Acupressure is effective in reducing anxiety, stress, and tension and other ailments such as headaches and muscle aches, increasing circulation and enabling the body to relax deeply. Ultimately by relieving stress the body's immune system is strengthened.

Acupressure can:

*  Relieve stress and tension
*  Relax mind and body
*  Increase blood circulation
*  Aid in the removal of toxic wastes
*  Provide relief from head, neck and shoulder aches
*  Promote the healing of injuries
*  Increase energy levels
*  Increase overall feeling of well-being
