Parapsychology - What Is Acupressure?

 



Acupressure is a kind of bodywork that is based on acupuncture, as the name suggests.


Instead of using needles, acupuncturists use their hands to apply pressure to specific areas on the body.



Massage was formerly a common practice in Japan, but it was severely curtailed by anti-massage legislation in the nineteenth century.

In 1955, the legislation was repealed.

As acupressure regained popularity in the West, it found a receptive audience.

Other body treatments like as do-in and shiatsu are comparable to acupressure, but they are not the same.

Contact the Acupressure Institute at 1533 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley, CA 94709 for more information.

Michael Reed Gach used the term "acu-yoga" to describe a kind of acupressure he created in the 1970s.

It is a combination of acupressure and hatha yoga.

People are taught how to apply pressure to the locations while in different yoga poses.



Acupressure News is a quarterly publication that focuses on acupressure.


Articles and news on the medical profession's activities, practices, and attitudes are included.

Address: 2309 Main St., Santa Monica, CA 90405.



Acupressure Workshop was a previous organization that offered beginner to intermediate lessons in acupressure, shiatsu, t'ai chi ch'an, and yoga.


They started in West Los Angeles and eventually moved to Santa Monica.
