Hong Ma, R.Ac., R.TCMP - Acupuncturist & TCM Practitioner
Acupressure has long been used to improve health and relieve pain. Acupressure is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practice that involves treating blocked energy, or Qi, by applying manual pressure to specific points on the body. Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners believe that the energy known as Qi circulates throughout the body along specific pathways called meridians. Good health is maintained as this energy flows freely throughout these channels.
Now you can try acupressure to treat yourself at home as I have recorded a series of videos to guide you.
In general, you apply pressure to a specific point using your thumb, finger or knuckle. This pressure should be gentle yet firm.
