Acupressure uses the same pressure points of acupuncture but instead of needles, you simply use your fingers to gently but firmly stimulate your body's natural ability to heal. With its easy and conversational style along with step-by-step photos, you'll discover how to heal your concerns naturally while living a pain-free and vibrant lifestyle.
