Acupressure has been around for thousands of years and the earliest texts referring to it, date back to 282 AD.
By stimulating a series of specific points in a sequence, the entire nervous system (spine) is relaxed and therefore the whole body. This enables the spine to be gently moved and adjusted, allowing an alignment of the hips or loosening of vertebrate, all with no pain or cracking.
By opening up the gaps in the spine, blood is able to enter and nourish the nerve endings, thus stimulating the connected body parts and organs. A deep sense of relaxation and calm is experienced by the recipient and muscle tension is greatly reduced also.
Acupressure is an effective treatment on it’s own, but is greatly enhanced when combined with massage.
The techniques taught to Paul from Jason Xu in Wellington originate from the Qing Dynasty in China.
