Before getting started
It is a simple yet a
remarkably effective way of treating common as well as complicated
ailments. Acupressure is known as Needleless Acupuncture. ‘ACU’, is the
Latin word for ‘needle’ and ‘puncture’ refers to ‘pricking’.
Instead of pricking with
needles at the Acupuncture points, rhythmic pressure is applied for one
or two minutes to balance the energy flow which cures the disease.

does it work?
Scientifically, the exact
theory is not yet established but there is enough practical evidence of
its effectiveness. The early Chinese theory explains that the root cause
of all diseases, in terms of Acupressure, is a disorder of energy
vibration. Every cell in the body vibrates at a specific rate and when
this vibration of energy goes beyond the normal range, it gives rise to
a disease. Acupressure aids in the
restoration of correct and harmonious vibration and in this way restores

The best part of the
treatment is that there are no side effects at all. Sometimes in the
initial phase, slight discomfort may be observed in a few cases, when
the body tries to normalize by rejecting the accumulated toxins from the
body. No harm will be done even if a wrong point is activated.
Sometimes, in extreme cases,
one may experience 'healing reactions' after the first treatment as the
accumulated toxins get released. As the toxins work their way out of the
body, there may be symptoms like headache, stiffness, stomach upset or diarrhoea, frequent urination and a lethargic feeling for a day or two.
Such symptoms are transitory and the body recovers within a day or two.
