Acupressure is one of the three pillars of Traditional Chinese Medicine and uses the fingers, elbows, and various tools to press key acupoints to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. When these points are tonified or sedated, depending on the intention of the practitioner, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force, known as qi or chi, to aid healing. Acupressure is a great alternative to acupuncture for people who dislike needles, frail people, and small children. Because acupressure follows the acupressure in Los Angeles, San Diego, and Orange Countyfundamental principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, it can be effective in helping relieve headaches, eye strain, sinus problems, neck pain, backaches, arthritis, muscle aches, tension due to stress, ulcer pain, menstrual cramps, lower backaches, constipation, and indigestion along with a host of other ailments. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, local symptoms are considered a holistic expression of the body’s condition; the approach of acupressure is to treat the cause of the symptoms, rather than the symptoms themselves. A typical session will involve an evaluation by the practitioner of your complaints as well as your overall health. Often, acupressure is integrated into other forms of manual therapy when needed to increase the effectiveness of the overall therapy  session. It's worth noting that unless performed by someone who is trained in acupuncture, it's simply massage.
