Acupressure is an ancient therapy, which uses precise finger placement and pressure over specific points along the body. This in turn sends signals to the body to promote self-healing. Often known as ‘acupuncture without needles’, careful pressure is applied over trigger points, unclogging the body’s energy pathways or meridians, referred to as “Qi” in chinese, creating a release in muscle tension, increase in blood circulation, and release of accumulated toxins, restoring the body’s equilibrium or ‘yin’ and ‘yang’ energies and relieving a range of physical and emotional ailments.
‘Tui Na’ is a form of Chinese deep tissue massage and one of the oldest forms of massage in the world. Rhythmic physical pressure is applied along energy channels or ‘acupoints’ using the hands and elbow, in a ‘pinch’ (Tui) and ‘pull’ (Na) method, designed to manipulate both superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissues. Acupressure and Tui Na massage are often used when acupuncture is inappropriate for e.g. in the case of young children.
