Acupressure is great for those who want to explore the use of Chinese medicine but are not ready for the step to the needles used in acupuncture. Newport Acupuncture Center offers acupressure to treat a number of ailments, including chronic pain, migraines, anxiety, and fertility issues, and can be a great partner in weight loss efforts. Chronic pain is one of the main issues we treat, and this pain can have many causes, such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, menstrual cramps, sciatica, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Acupressure can help relieve your pain.
Similar to acupuncture, the gentle art of acupressure is part of a school of ancient Chinese medicine used to treat a number of ailments. It is based on Chinese concepts that many, if not all, Americans are familiar with. The central element is Chi, as in Tai Chi. This is the name given to the life force that flows through all living things. This force runs along channels, known as meridians. The concepts of yin and yang are also part of this world view, and the familiar black and white balanced teardrops beautifully symbolize the balance acupressure works to restore. When balance is restored, your pain will be relieved and you will feel more energetic.
Modern Western Medicine is discovering new things with each passing year, and those who know about ancient Chinese medicine are sure that empirical evidence of the Chinese concepts of Chi and meridians will be found.
