Ancient Traditions for Modern Lives About Clinical Acupressure Sometimes described as “acupuncture without the needles,” Clinical Acupressure (CA) promotes wellness and rejuvenation by accessing and addressing the vital energies of the body.
CA is derived from traditional acupressure which uses touch on specific points to release and rebalance the way energy flows through the body. Specific point combinations are held with firm, gentle finger pressure as the body, mind and spirit return to balance. As we bring a clearer stronger field of energy through the whole-being, it is not uncommon for new or forgotten awareness to arise in the body, mind, emotions, and soul. This is very natural, and our practitioners are skilled at navigating these events gently and with compassion during the session.
Clinical Acupressure is not intended to replace medical care for serious conditions, however those who
receive this method report that it addresses common symptoms easily and effectively, with no harsh side effects.
CA is often used to complement more traditional methods such as physical therapy, massage, or nursing. It also stands very well on its own. A full CA session takes about an hour, and the client stays fully dressed while receiving the session.
This method of working with the human energy system was developed and refined by Aminah Raheem, Ph.D. She is the creator of Process Acupressure (PA) which facilitates emotional and spiritual awareness during bodywork. She has been teaching this method internationally for more than twenty-five years.
