Acupressure for labor

What is acupressure?
Acupressure was developed in China over 4,000 years ago.  Acupressure is an ancient healing art using the fingers to gradually press key healing points, which stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities.  Using the power and sensitivity of the hand, acupressure therapy is effective in the relief of stress-related ailments and is ideal for self-treatment and preventive health care for boosting the immune system. Acupressure releases tension, increases circulation, reduces pain, promotes healing and develops spirituality along with vibrant health.
