First an acupressure point is chosen by locating a body part for soreness and tenderness. Acupressure points are located on both the site of pain (local) and far away from the site of pain (distal). Pressing these local and distal points for 30 seconds to 3 minutes at a time can help release muscle tension and promote blood circulation, leading to significant pain relief.
Acupressure massage is one of the cornerstones of Chinese Medicine. At Messina Acupuncture, acupressure is incorporated into every treatment plan. Acupressure is a powerful healing tool and is one of the many reasons why our clinic differs from conventional acupuncture clinics that limit themselves to acupuncture alone
