I am now offering a new way for you to have a relaxing treatment at home!
How does online acupressure work?
Contact me and let me know you are interested.
I will send you a link so you can order some acupressure press seeds. Press seeds are tiny seeds or magnets, on a little square of adhesive.
Once you have your seeds we can meet for an online appointment. I will send you a Zoom meeting invite with a link.
Your first appointment will be about 40-45 minutes. Follow up appointments are 30 minutes.
In your appointment we can talk about your symptoms and I will show you where to put your seeds. We will probably find about six acupoints for you to use.
Your acupressure seeds will stay on for about 3 – 5 days. They will normally stay put when you shower.
What can I treat with acupressure?
Acupressure with press seeds can treat all of the same conditions that acupuncture can treat.
What does an acupressure session cost?
Your first session is £35. Follow up appointments are £20.
Packets of press seeds cost between £5 – 8 for 100, depending on the brand.
Does acupressure work as well as acupuncture?
I have been using acupressure seeds on myself and clients for twenty years and have found them a very useful tool.
There are not many studies specifically using acupressure but one done in 2013 treating lower back pain found the participants in the acupressure group had statistically significant clinical improvement and only needed four treatments to achieve a good relief from pain.
