Acupressure – $85
Acupressure is an ancient healing art. Finger pressure is used on key points to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. It encourages the release of muscular tension, the increased circulation of blood, and the flow of the body’s vital life force (chi) simply by pressing these special points. Like acupuncture, acupressure accesses the energy of the body through the points and meridian pathways- both use the same points and meridian pathways- to influence the health and well being of the person.
Acupressure originated in China and has been further developed in Japan and recently, also here in the United States. It began as a folk art, with practical ways that worked to balance and heal the body. This information was handed down from generation to generation by word of mouth. Through years of experience this knowledge of points and treatment techniques was eventually charted and written down. Consequently, many people are now able to discover the benefits of acupressure for enhancing their health and well-being.
Shiatsu – $85
Shiatsu is an Oriental therapeutic form of massage using deep pressure to stimulate the same points used in acupuncture. Releasing these points opens the channels of energy and blood flow to nourish the internal organs, glands, muscles, nerves, and vital centers of the body.
The Japanese word Shiatsu is composed of “shi” meaning finger and “atsu” meaning pressure. This traditional art of finger pressure releases muscular tension, toxicity, and the vital life energy responsible for nourishing all aspects of the body and mind.
The Japanese Ministry of Health and Welfare describes Shiatsu therapy as a form of manipulation administered by the thumbs, fingers, and palms, without the use of instruments, mechanical or otherwise, to apply pressure to the human skin, correct internal malfunctioning, and promote and maintain health.
