Like acupuncture, acupressure is a traditional Chinese medicine technique based on the concept of applying pressure along energy meridians to free energy flow. Practitioners address health concerns, from headaches and muscle tension to organ dysfunction and other more serious concerns, by balancing the body’s essential life forces.

All acupressure continuing education is founded on extensive study of traditional Chinese medicine, but CEU providers may take a clinical focus, spiritual focus or combination of the two. Introductory courses often teach you about the five element system and the body’s meridians. Later courses or smaller seminars may delve into specific health concerns, using acupressure for emotional healing or self-healing techniques for massage therapists.
