Acupressure is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) technique derived from acupuncture. It is applied to acupuncture points (14 channels) by the finger, fist, palm, elbow, and guasha (water buffalo horn). We use a finger or guasha to stimulate or rebalance the yin and yang on each of the acupoints and fist, palm, and elbow to rebalance the 14 channels on the body. Then, acupressure, stretching, and realignment are combined into what we call tui-na. Tui-na is very deep tissue body work and good for any type of pain related physical condition and blockage of energy and blood in the body. Shiatsu and jin shin do were derived from tui-na and acupressure. Acupressure is good for neck, shoulder, lower back, sciatica and even headache pain, as well as a lot of other bodily pain problems. For example, if you have lower back pain, acupressurists already know the accupoints and can work on the specific points to bring relief.
