Acupressure

DESCRIPTION

It is a physiotherapeutic method derived from a chinese acupuncture. Acupressure is using only pressure on the acupressure points, therefore it is non-invasive, contrary to acupuncture which uses needles.

Shock wave therapy is basically based on the same principle. There are the so called “trigger points”. These are the same points which are stimulated in acupuncture, acupressure and in further methods as for example already mentioned shockwave therapy. Knowledge about these points is generally important for a successful treatment in physiotherapy.

WHEN IT IS APPLIED:

We stimulate certain acupressure areas within the relieving and treating physiotherapy and rehabilitation, as additional and supportive method for traditional physiotherapy.

WHEN IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED:

In acute phases of painful conditions, diseases.
