Acupressure Sessions

Acupressure draws on the principles of Chinese Medicine. Sessions take place fully-clothed on a massage table, or if you prefer, sitting in a chair. I begin the session with some tuina massage to warm up the body and then hold selected pressure points during the session. People often report a great sense of relaxation and a sense of aliveness afterwards. Acupressure also can address specific health concerns. Sessions generally last an hour, though shorter or longer sessions can be arranged.
