Acupressure is a great way to empower yourself to take control of your symptoms. It’s a type of massage therapy in which manual pressure is applied to specific points on the body. It's a practice of traditional Chinese medicine that is similar to acupuncture, except that fingertip pressure is applied instead of needles. The goal is to encourage the movement of blocked Jing, Qi or Shen energies through the 14 meridians (energy channels) within the body. Pressing the acupuncture points helps to regulate the free flow of energy in the meridians and improve health.
