Bio-Point Acupressure Therapy

Bio-Point Acupressure Therapy

What is Bio-Point Acupressure Therapy?

This alternative medicine technique is similar in principle to acupuncture. It is based on the concept of energy flowing through meridians, or pathways in the body that link our entire system and are important for vitality. When there is insufficient blood flow and oxygen within these meridians, it is also impeded to the organs, bones, nerves, tendons, cartilage, ligaments, joints and muscle. Bio-points are acupressure points corresponding with meridians. Muscular trigger points are also often found in these areas and benefit from treatment. The technique involves applying deep manual pressure.

What is the advantage of this method of treatment?

Treatment stimulates the brain to produce a local and global healing effect including beneficial hormone and pain cycle changes. Positive results include muscular relaxation, reduced inflammation, and acceleration of blood flow, thereby improving pain, mobility and strength. Healing is facilitated, and often allows reduction or elimination of medication use. Treatment can also help lower stress levels and strengthen the immune system.

How do I receive Bio-Point Acupressure Therapy?

We offer Bio-Point Acupressure Therapy at our Fox Point location. The technique is performed using direct pressure applied by hand, and is deeper than traditional massage. 6-8 sessions are recommended to gain significant improvements in pain, strength, mobility and overall function.
