Acupressure therapy also releases tightness in body muscles.

Overall wellbeing –The science of acupressure therapy is based on the belief that the entire body is made up of ‘chi’ or ‘qui’, which are vital energies that flows through the body along the lines or meridians and when these are blocked, the body manifests a disease.
