Acupressure (or reflexology, or acupuncture without needles) is a natural therapeutic method that stimulates the energy flow in the body, strengthen the self-healing abilities and helps resist to disease.

Acupressure is sometimes confused with massage, which is inappropriate. Acupressure is one of the three branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine, with herbs medicine and acupuncture. Diet and energy gymnastics such as Tai-Chi and Qi Gong are complements. A TCM practitioner specializes in one of those 5 modalities.

Every region in Asia, and later on in the West, has developped its own style. Shiatsu, for instance, is the Japanese version of acupressure. There are now in the world many different acupressure modalities and techniques.

    L’acupressure reste aussi aujourd’hui une des méthodes les plus performantes d’auto massage pour soulager les douleurs musculaires. Mal de tête, douleur cervicale, crampes, tension dû au stress, crampe menstruelle, constipation ou indigestion. L’auto massage permet aussi de supprimer l’anxiété et améliorer la qualité du sommeil. Je pratique l’acupressure chez avec un tapis a picots du suédois je peux confirmer que l’acupressure permet de maintenir le corps en bonne santé.
