Acupressure Massage Portland Oregon

Acupressure Massage

This technique has been used for thousands of years in China, applying some of the same principles as acupuncture but without the needles. It can be used for overall balance, to reduce stress, and to eliminate pain and fatigue. Acupoints lie along meridians or channels in your body which relate to specific organs.  These are the same meridians and acupoints as those used in acupuncture. Using massage with pressure on specific points along these meridians opens up blockages in each specific pathway. Our founder had her earliest training as a massage therapist that was inspired by acupressure while she was living in England. She has passed on her education to other LMTs that work with her.
