Acupressure is a traditional Chinese healing method in which the fingertips are used to apply pressure to stimulate key healing points (this contrasts with acupuncture, where needles are used). When these key points are stimulated they restore the free flow of energy around the body.
Let's find acupressure near you, just enter your postcode/town below...
There are various forms of acupressure including, Tui Na Chinese Massage, Shiatsu massage, Su-Jok and Reiki.
Whilst there is no scientific evidence to support or reject the use of acupressure, it has been used to treat:
- back pain
- emotional issues, such as depression and stress
Each session will last 30 to 60 minutes and the therapist will ask you what parts of your body require attention. It is advised that you wear comfortable clothing and drink plenty of water beforehand to avoid dehydration.
Although there is no specific acupressure professional body the practitioners should be registered with one of the following associations:
- The Acupuncture Society (AcS)
- The Association of Physical and Natural Therapies (APNT)
- The Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ATCM)
Membership of a professional body ensures that practitioners are expected to conduct their professional activities in accordance with the Ethics, Rules and Regulations of the Society, which includes complying with the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974).
