What is acupressure?

Acupressure is a complementary medicinal technique derived from acupuncture. In acupressure physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points using the fingers, hands or massage tools. With over 2500 years of history in practice, acupressure childbirth and acupressure fertility have been used to facilitate the birth process for generations of women.

Qi is the central underlying principle in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Qi is the vital energy that flows through the body. The body's functions can be stimulated via the acu-points. Acu-points are the areas on the body where energy is easily accessed.

In acupuncture, needles are used to achieve "DaQi": connecting with the Qi so that energy can be dispersed from an excess area or drawn to an area if it is deficient. Needles can be wonderful tools in the hand of a skilled acupuncturist but there is no stronger conductor of Qi on the planet than the human hand.

The healing power of Acupressure is unleashed though the use of the fingers to stimulate the bodies acu-points, which stimulate the bodies flow of Qi (life energy) to the corresponding body part. Using the healing power of human touch, Acupressure works in the relief of chronic or stress-induced disorders, pain relief, and the balancing of the bodies systems. A balanced energy system allows normal functions such as immune function and of course reproduction. Acupressure releaves tension, optimizes blood flow, reduces pain, and develops mind-body connection and radiant health.

Acupressure and Acupuncture employ the same acu-points (pressure points) and meridians, but Acupuncture employs needles, while Acupressure uses varying degress of pressure using the fingers. When the correctly stimulated, the acupressure points releieve unneccessary muscular tension, promote the circulation of Qi and blood, and improves immune function. Acupressure therapy can be used to improve healing rate, outlook and mood, eliminate toxins, enhance the reproductive system, aid in natural childbirth and much more.

When skillfully applied, acupressure, dietary and lifestyle changes are effective in correcting many of the imbalances which underlie the complex physical and hormonal disorders which lead to reduced fertility or infertility.
