- Acupressure – Like acupuncture, is an ancient healing art developed in Asia over 5,000 years ago. It involves pressing on key points on the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. Acupressure helps to release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force energy to aid healing. Both acupressure and acupuncture use the same points and meridians, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses gentle but firm pressure using the fingers. Some of the advantages of using acupressure include relieving pain, reducing tension, increasing circulation, and inducing relaxation in the body. Overall, acupressure assists by balancing the body to maintain good health and promote wellness.
- ETPS Neuromechanical Therapy – is based on the synthesis of these different therapeutic approaches including acupuncture, neurology, microcurrent stimulation and myofascial release techniques. It involves using a small battery-operated unit that sends tiny electrical impulses to both nerve (trigger and motor) and acupuncture points which relate to a given disorder. When properly stimulated, these points relax the nerves that are entrapped muscles, resulting in decreased pain, increased circulation, and improved range of motion. ETPS stimulate point on the body that trigger the release of beta-endorphins – the body’s own painkillers. More Information
