Acupressure Therapy and Its Importance

Massage therapies encourage you to relax both your mind and body and our different massage therapies done by our massage therapists at Fitness Canada Physio & Massage Centre are for you to experience just that mind-body connectionAcupressure is one of the most well-known massage therapies at our Centre as this unique massage therapy has been used in traditional Chinese medicine. At Fitness Canada Physio & Massage Centre, this massage therapy is a healing technique that uses light pressure on particular body spots. Our massage therapists apply precise pressure and finger placement on the targeted healing areas in order to encourage the body’s natural healing process. Pressing on acupressure points is meant to provide particular therapeutic effects on mental, emotional, and physical health, much like acupuncture does. However, acupressure stimulates the acupressure points with therapeutic touch or instruments rather than needles as in acupuncture.


What’s The Importance of Acupressure Therapy? 

A number of benefits of acupressure contribute to someone’s general wellbeing. Using the body’s own healing capacity, this traditional method provides relief from a variety of conditions.


It’s normal for people who have never had acupressure massage therapy to be doubtful about its benefits, however our massage therapists can advise you on the following benefits that you are sure to experience if you do decide to go through an acupressure massage therapy session with us at Fitness Canada Physio & Massage Centre:


  • Pain Management – Acupressure is used most frequently for pain relief. Acupressure massage therapy is a powerful pain reliever for many people with chronic pain. 
  • Relaxation – Relaxation of the body and mind can be achieved with any deep tissue massage. At Fitness Canada Physio & Massage Centre, acupressure massage therapy simply uses massage techniques such as deep pressure, stretching, or rhythmic tapping on acupoints that have been observed for decades. These methods improve circulation to places deficient in oxygen by relaxing tense muscles. A reduction in tenseness in the muscles also tends to result in an overall more relaxed mental state. 
  • Better Sleep – Since your body and mind become more relaxed during our massage therapy, it will help you to have better sleep without any troubles. 

Acupressure is applied to the body to open up energy channels. Trigger points, meridians, and acupressure points can all be treated using acupressure. Acupressure works by stimulating these areas, which reduces pain, eases tension, and speeds up healing. Acupressure is a useful massage therapy that the massage therapists at Fitness Canada Physio & Massage Centre can use to treat a variety of conditions.
