An acupressurist with knowledge, skill and experience may help in the treatment of a wide range of health conditions, including those where there is no discernable western medical diagnosis. The gentle Jin Shin acupressure styles utilised in the practice evolved in the early 20th century and their origins can be traced back over 5000 years within Asia. An acupressurist works with the same points used in acupuncture – called acupoints - stimulating these healing sites with finger pressure, rather than inserting fine needles. This gently unblocks key points on the body's energy pathways to enable healing without the use of manipulation or deep pressure. Acupressure aids elimination of stress, pain and alleviation of acute and chronic conditions. By stimulating the bodies natural curative abilities, acupressure also works as a powerful preventative therapy and is a safe and effective complement to conventional healing methods.
