According to traditional Chinese medical theory, acupuncture points lie along meridians, where Qi, the body’s energy, flows. Health is a balance of Yin and Yang within the body. Disease is due to an internal imbalance of Yin and Yang. An axiom of the medical literature on acupuncture is “no pain, no blockage; no blockage no pain.” Acupressure massage is one of the Chinese techniques in which the acupuncture points are stimulated through pressing.

In this course, we will introduce some important acupuncture points, learn main massage, methods, and provide acupressure massage regimens for the common physical problems.
