    Our Acupressure Course Online will introduce you to the ancient Chinese idea of life energy (Chi or Qi). This life energy runs through the body along conduits called meridians. It is believed that many ailments and illnesses are caused by obstructions in these meridians.  These blockages have a negative impact on the flow of life energy.

    The traditional Chinese medicine technique of Acupressure works on the principle of identifying exact points on the body (called acupoints) where the life force is stuck or being slowed down. Whereas acupuncture does something similar using needles, acupressure makes use of precise finger placements to assist in unblocking the pathways.  Proper use of these techniques will help to free up the flow of life force and relieve related symptoms.

    Our Acupressure Course Online will introduce you to the ancient Chinese idea of life energy (Chi or Qi). This life energy runs through the body along conduits called meridians. It is believed that many ailments and illnesses are caused by obstructions in these meridians.  These blockages have a negative impact on the flow of life energy.

    The traditional Chinese medicine technique of Acupressure works on the principle of identifying exact points on the body (called acupoints) where the life force is stuck or being slowed down. Whereas acupuncture does something similar using needles, acupressure makes use of precise finger placements to assist in unblocking the pathways.  Proper use of these techniques will help to free up the flow of life force and relieve related symptoms.
