What is acupressure?

Acupressure is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that helps restore your body’s own healing powers through pressure placed on specific points in your body. Acupressure is similar to acupuncture in that it helps restore the flow of your qi, or vital force, through your body’s channels to improve health and resolve your ailment. But instead of using acupuncture needles, Dr. Moshkovich uses her fingertips.

What conditions benefit from acupressure?

Dr. Moshkovich uses acupressure to manage many common health concerns. Some of the conditions that may benefit from traditional Chinese therapy include:

  • Muscle tension and pain
  • Stress
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Arthritis
  • Nausea and vomiting due to pregnancy or chemotherapy treatment

By placing her fingertips on specific points in your body, Dr. Moshkovich is able to initiate a physiological reaction to reduce pain and inflammation and restore health. Each acupressure point benefits specific areas of your body to provide the desired results.

Am I a good candidate for acupressure?

Dr. Moshkovich determines if you’re a good candidate for acupressure when you come in for a consultation. She takes a holistic approach to care and focuses on your total wellness, not just your symptom or disease, and creates a treatment plan with that goal in mind.

During your initial evaluation, she reviews your symptoms, medical and family history, and lifestyle.

Based on the information gathered during your evaluation, she creates a personalized treatment plan that helps you get the relief you’re looking for, as well as an improvement in your overall health and wellness. Depending on your specific health needs and goals, she may recommend acupressure.

Dr. Moshkovich offers many holistic treatments at Nirvana Naturopathics and may offer other treatments as well to optimize your health.

What can I expect during acupressure treatment?

Acupressure is a relaxing treatment at Nirvana Naturopathics. During your session, Dr. Moshkovich has you sit or lie on an exam table and presses on your acupressure points with a specific amount of pressure for a set period of time. She may repeat the action up to five times during your session.

After your acupressure treatment, you should feel relaxed and rejuvenated.
