Therapeutic massage can help relieve pain, nausea, and anxiety from your body. You just have to understand your pressure points and how to exploit them to your own good health. Based on the experience and expertise of massage therapists in El Segundo, you can understand acupressure massage at home.
Acupressure originates from the Chinese who believe some pressure lines known as the meridian runs through the human body. The meridians connect our fingers, brains and every other organ in the human body. However, the Chinese believe that any blockage in the meridians leads to ill health and can only be unblocked using Acupressure massage.
There are many pressure points along the human body meridians, but you should target these ones for your therapeutic massage:
