Acupressure is an ancient Asian healing art developed by Chinese physicians and healers more than 5,000 years ago, designed to encourage and restore the harmonious circulation of Life Force, (known as Qi) in the body.
Regular acupressure sessions, combined with the practice of qigong (a series of body movements similar to Tai Chi), helps keeping the body healthy, the mind strong and the spirit vibrant.
Acupressure uses the same theories as acupuncture. However, instead of needles, acupressure uses gentle but firm touch, hand manipulations and finger pressure. In our self-care program you will learn both acupressure and qigong.
