Acupressure uses the same pressure points as acupuncture but instead of needles, you simply use your fingers to gently but firmly stimulate your body’s natural ability to heal. With its easy and conversational style along with step-by-step photos, you’ll discover how to heal your concerns naturally while living a pain-free and vibrant lifestyle. When acupressure points are correctly stimulated they promote blood circulation and release muscular tension. This helps to heal pain and is ideal for preventative health because it actually boosts your immune system and increases the flow of energy throughout your body.
