Acupressure helps energy flow through your body and can relieve muscle or joint pain. Acupressure is similar to acupuncture, but does not use needles. Instead, the practitioner will apply pressure with their hands, elbows, and/or various devices. With this alternative medicine technique, it is believed that energy flows through “meridians” within the body. By stimulating the meridian system it will bring balance within your body while increasing circulation and flexibility. Applying pressure to these meridians could also relieve any blockages.
