Acupressure


Acupressure is a technique which uses physical pressure to aid the body's natural healing abilities and relieve pain.

What is acupressure?

Acupressure is method of pain relief similar to acupuncture, which involves using the fingers to apply pressure to certain parts of the body. In order to provide relief from foot pain, the podiatrist will apply firm, even pressure to specific pressure points on the foot. This application of pressure causes the muscles in that area to relax and stimulates a localised increase in blood flow to the area improving the body's ability to heal.

What podiatry related conditions can acupressure help with?


Acupressure can be used within podiatry to reduce foot pain caused by problems such as;

How does acupressure work?

Acupressure can help to relax muscles by improving the blood and oxygen supply to muscle tissue. This causes a natural increase in temperature of between 2 to 3 degrees within the muscle. This increase in temperature allows the muscle to become more flexible and relaxed, enabling them to heal at a faster rate.

Acupressure can also work to remove blockages within the body, applying a force to remove the blockage and allow oxygen and blood to circulate properly in the area.

What are the benefits of acupressure?


Acupressure in the treatment of foot pain has many benefits. The technique is fast and easy and can be used to improve overall wellbeing as well as relieving foot pain. It is a gentle, low risk procedure which has high success rates. Acupressure can also eliminate or reduce the use of prescription drugs and more invasive treatment methods.
