Acupressure

Acupressure is an ancient Chinese healing method that involves applying pressure to certain meridian points on the body.

Based on the same principles of Five Element Acupuncture, Hannah’s experience of this system enhances the treatment of acupressure.

Acupressure uses finger pressure on points along the meridians to move the vital energy – Qi, promoting the natural self curative ability of the body mind and spirit.

Acupressure’s healing touch is a safe and effective method of treatment;- acupuncture without needles.

Acupressure enhances the body’s Qi, this ancient healing art that uses the fingers to gradually press key healing points.

Acupressure’s touch aids the immune system, the circulation of blood and lymph is promoted, easing stress, releasing muscular tension, relieving pain, enabling deep relaxation, easing anxiety and emotional pain, strengthening resistance to disease and promoting wellness.

Southwell Acupuncture Clinic’s signature Acupressure Facial

Hannah’s signature acupressure facial treatment is carried out with Weleda 100% natural skin care products, a unique treatment to rejuvenate your skin and smooth wrinkles.

This is a relaxing facial treatment, stimulating the acupressure points on the face and neck, facial acupressure is dramatically different from a typical facial massage.

Facial acupressure can stimulate the muscles and nerves to boost collagen production, to help keep the skin firm, supple reducing wrinkles and revitalise tired skin.
There are also acupressure points on the body used to ground the treatment.
