Touch of Health: Discover the Unknown Benefits of Acupressure Massage
People who frequent spas in Folsom are already familiar with the common types of alternative therapies like acupuncture and certain massages. While each has its own benefits, there is a way that you can get the best of both worlds. An acupressure massage is a melodic combination of both centuries-old techniques that can offer long-term health benefits. Many people aren’t even aware of this type of massage and if you are one of them, you’re clearly missing out. Don’t worry though, it’s never too late to make an appointment with a massage therapist from an all-natural spa like The Healing Station. What is Acupressure Massage? Acupressure massage focuses on the stimulation of the acupressure points. Think of it as acupuncture minus the needles. The massage therapist puts pressure on specific points of the body through which energy flows. These specific areas are known as meridians of Qi, which according to ancient Chinese medicine are vital energy pathways.
