What is Acupressure?
Acupressure is 5,000 years old and is the precursor of acupuncture. Five Elements Acupressure blends Japanese finger pressure techniques, acupuncture theory, Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, and Five Element theory, which is based on the natural cycles in the environment and within ourselves.
• Gentle yet deep sustained finger pressure is applied to the same points on the body that are used in acupuncture. The stimulation of these points can relieve pain, tension, stress, grief, fatigue, insomnia, assist with injuries, illness, and promote recovery.
• The client remains clothed, lying on a comfortable, padded massage table. No needles are used, only finger pressure.
• Acupressure accesses the body's innate ability to heal, and creates profound, energized, deep relaxation with lasting effect. It releases endorphins, increases circulation, can strengthen weaknesses, and prevent health disorders.
The body, mind, and spirit are inextricably connected. Five Element Acupressure is designed to discover the root cause of discomfort in the body, mind, and spirit. Each treatment is tailored to the client’s specific needs.
Myofascial Release is a manual technique that applies gentle, sustained pressure to myofascial connective tissue to ease restrictions and pain, and restore movement.

I first saw Donna for Acupressure when I was experiencing the typical symptoms of stress – jaw pain, stiff neck, sore shoulders. It was such a relief to feel completely better after the first few sessions with the unexpected bonus of enjoying a good nights sleep! -- Mary K.
Donna has a special gift of making her clients comfortable -- within the first 10-15 minutes I would feel calm and deeply relaxed, a feeling that carried over into my day. This helped to release the muscle tightness that was contributing to my lower back and hip pain. -- Kathy G.
