Acupressure Therapy in West Orange, NJ
Acupressure uses gentle to firm finger pressure in the pressure points and meridians much like acupuncture does with the use of needles. As these acupressure points are stimulated, muscular tension releases, circulation of blood is promoted, and the body’s life force energy is enhanced to aid in healing.
When used properly, acupressure helps in promoting the circulation of blood. When you apply pressure to certain points, it helps in activating and opening up the flow of blood in the blood vessels present below the skin. This increase in blood flow helps almost all organs in the body regenerate and perform optimally. Acupressure therapy can be used to relieve pain, fortify the sexual reproductive system, improve appearance, relieve tension in the back, and help heal emotional pain for greater health and beauty.
Acupressure Therapy can be Combined with Acupuncture and Cupping Therapy to Provide for Chronic Muscle Pain Relief
With myofascial pain syndrome (chronic muscle pain), pressure on trigger points or sensitive points in your muscles can cause pain in other parts of the body. Our medical professionals are experienced in alleviating this pain with specialized hands-on techniques.
Normal myofascial muscles should feel pliable and elastic. Myofascial pain syndrome typically occurs after a specific muscle has been contracted repetitively. This can be caused by repetitive motions used in jobs (as most daily jobs are repetitive), hobbies/sports or by stress-related muscle tension.
Posture Perfect Chiropractic is wholly unique as we often pair acupressure therapy with a number of other treatments that may include chiropractic care, acupuncture, cupping, and massage therapy to provide the best results!
