Acupressure and acupuncture use the same theory in Chinese medicine with their shared views on energy (chi), blood movement and pressure points. Both these forms of treatment use the same 365 pressure points found on the body.

Acupressure’s two big advantages over its cousin Acupuncture, is it is non-evasive and it is a slow burning whereas acupuncture is a more focused ‘big bang’ approach.

When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force to aid pain relief. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same points, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses touch and manipulation.

Acupressure, has the advantage of allowing the body the opportunity to get into a prolonged, relaxed state where it can enjoy pressure for several days – and advantage of keeping the pressure working while sleeping.

As we tend to sleep soundly for 4-6 hours a night, the acupressure points are working in tandem with our body’s energies; our treatment maps direct you to your acupressure points, and these points are manipulated by our magnets the whole time they are worn, providing a working pain relief while wearing the acuplasters.

It also allows reduction in stress and stimulates the body’s natural self-curative abilities.
