Traditional Acupressure is very similar to acupuncture, but without use of needles; instead thumb or elbow pressures are used on particular points on the body. Based on the Eastern Medicine practices, the concept of helping restore the proper energy flow in the body.
The form of Acupressure performed at Listening Hands is more based on the Lymphatic System. This system is responsible for draining your body of fluids and toxins. When there is a calcium build up in the lymphatic drains, they cannot properly rid your body of all these toxins, causing you to feel pain, arthritis, dry mouth, osteoporosis to name a few. This is a modality not offered at any other clinic in Ottawa. It is very effective in relieving pain and bring back normal functioning to the muscles, joints and body as a whole. When you have an ailment that nobody seems to be able to help, please come try our Acupressure. You will be glad that you did!
