Sports and acupressure massage is the art of relieving tension and stress by using precise finger placement and pressure on specific points in the body. It is like persistent, moving acupuncture using fingers, palms and elbows to break through muscle tension and disperse stagnant energy in the body. Acupressure originated in China around 5,000 years ago and employs the same meridian points as acupuncture, but without the needles and the puncturing of skin. It is mainly used to release stress but also helps in reducing pain, increasing circulation and promoting calmness in the mind and body. Our therapists are skilled practitioners licensed in New York State.
