What are the acupressure points?
There are different styles of this type of massage therapy, relying on the use of varying rhythms and the use of pressure.
The two types of acupressure points:
•Local point: Exact point of pain
•Trigger point: Point away from the local point but effective near the point of pain
Acupressure massage involves stimulation of these specific points along the body. Every organ in the human body has a representative point. Vital energy flows through invisible channels called meridians. The meridians begin at your fingertips, connect to your brain, and then connect to an organ associated with a specific meridian. Stimulation of these points is believed to have positive effects on the body. When a trigger point is massaged, the benefit circulates through the meridians to the pain area.
What should you expect during this type of massage?
An acupressure massage involves the use of thumbs, knuckles or fingers during the massage to apply firm pressure to these different points. The pressure can be applied anywhere from thirty seconds up to two minutes, depending on the symptoms being treated. These points can also be stimulated solely for massage and relaxation. The area around these points is massaged and stretched for a better effect.
A massage that incorporates acupressure has a lasting effect on the mind and body. While it can relieve pain in specific areas, it can also be soothing and relaxing.

Can Deep Tissue Massage ease sciatica pain?
Deep Tissue Massage is a firm massage technique that focusses on the deeper layers of muscles, tendons and tissues, like the fascia and other supportive tissues. It involves the use of firm pressure to reach those deeper areas. Alternatively, by involving gentler, yet sustained pressure, this can effectively target the myofascial layer.
