What is Acupressure?

Acupressure relies on the Traditional Chinese Medicine theory of the meridians of chi and balancing each meridian through specific pressure points, or acupoints. Many acupressure points may overlap trigger points or other knots.

 

Shiatsu, which means finger pressure, is the most well known kind of acupressure. It’s similar to acupuncture, except there are no needles. Much like acupuncture, shiatsu works with strategic, specific points or energy pathways that run along meridians of chi, or life force.

Why would I need it?

The overall purpose is to help restore a balance to the body and mind through applying pressure to these potent points. There are points that can alleviate headaches, improve circulation, balance out fatigue or insomnia, gently diminish soreness in muscles, and can even aid in digestion and organ function.

Marissa Orchard incorporates different acupressure points in each massage, based on client need.
