Emotional Healing

Long known for its capacity to mitigate physical pain, acupressure can also release emotional pain. Emotional stress causes the body to shut down and hold onto negative feelings, resulting in physical ailments and emotional imbalances. Acupressure techniques release this muscular tension and restore the flow of vital energy, making resolution possible.

Tension prevents energy from circulating freely in our bodies, which can lead to various physical and emotional imbalances. If these tensions and resulting afflictions are not dealt with, emotional problems can remain buried, and then resurface, when they're triggered by a new stress. Unlike therapies that only address the cognitive and emotional aspects of trauma, acupressure works directly with the physiological source and facilitates the body itself to relieve physical ailments, muscular tension, and the emotional imbalances stored deep within ourselves.

Emotional imbalances and the physical manifestations that often accompany them are the body's reaction to unresolved issues and experiences. If left untreated, they can continue for years. Using acupressure points for a current condition may bring old conflicts or memories to the surface during a session or afterward. To follow up, use acupressure self-care methods that will be shown to you, or explore the issues in therapy. Becoming conscious of old memories and bringing them out in the open can lessen their impact and promote emotional healing.
