Acupressure Massage

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) places great emphasis on bodily rituals based on the principles of the flow of energy through the body; the unity of nature and the human body. Qi energy circulates via channels called meridians. Our level of well-being depends on the natural flow of this energy. Chinese doctors believe that when this flow is disrupted, physical and mental illnesses arise. Restoring the normal circulation of Qi can improve both our physical and emotional states, as well as our nervous system: we can get a boost of energy and revitalize our minds.

Acupressure is one of the TCM techniques that helps restore the flow of Qi energy. Practitioners massage certain spots located throughout the human body which are biologically active and have a reflex connection to the internal organs and meridians. These are biologically active points that have a reflex connection to the internal organs and meridians. It is possible to restore the energy circulation and therefore the functioning of all the body’s systems by applying pressure on them.

Acupuncture or acupressure?

Acupressure is often compared to acupuncture, a technique where thin needles are used to stimulate biologically active points. This comparison reveals numerous benefits of acupressure:

The same specific points are activated as in acupuncture and other types of reflexology.
It doesn't damage the skin, doesn't employ reusable instruments which can host contagious diseases, the massage sets are strictly individual and do not create a risk of infection.

Acupressure is the ancient doctors' science that, combined with contemporary technology, brings us the opportunity to live without pain, to relieve the unpleasant symptoms of many illnesses and to attend to the stresses and anxieties of modern life, without pharmaceutical intervention.

Not all spiked mats are so safe or effective. The secret is the carefully calculated arrangement of the lotuses. The distance between them is set to ensure optimal pressure on each point of the body: strong enough to make the acupressure work, and soft enough not to cause any harm. The patented lotus points are longer and perfectly rounded to protect the skin. Alternatives on the market mostly employ short triangular spikes with sharp ridges in the plastic molding, that damage the skin whilst delivering minimal effect.
