Acupressure / Body Work in NE Portland
Acupressure is a form of massage used in combination with acupuncture, or herbal treatments. Acupressure is identical to Acupuncture in that the same points are targeted to relieve pain and promote wellness, however, instead of using needles as the healing procedure, pressure is applied to the same points by hand. Though the needles used in Acupuncture are virtually painless, this is a great alternative to those who may fear needles, such as small children.
