Acupressure aims to stimulate precise points ("acupoints") in order to increase, regulate and balance the flow of energy in the body.  This can allow for better overall performance of the systems of the body.  It can be performed on oneself through knowledge of the specific points or by an acupressure practitioner to relieve pain, de-stress, or relax.   There are over 1200 acupoints on the body.
