A Distance Learning Diploma Course of 12 Lessons
Acupressure is the application of pressure to the body to enhance the flow of energy (variously referred to as ‘Ki’, ‘Chi’ or ‘Prana’) in the 12 main bi-lateral meridians, according to the principles of Oriental medicine. This therapy is widely used in China where more emphasis is given to a person’s responsibility for their own health than it is in the Western world.
Acupressure is believed to be the ‘Mother of Acupuncture’, in that it predates the use of needles to stimulate the body’s energy flow. It has the same principles as Acupuncture, but the pressure is applied directly to the Acupoints of the body mainly by using the hands, fingers, thumbs or knuckles. Stimulation of the body’s meridian system by touch is perhaps one of the oldest and most effective healing systems.
