Acupressure concentrates movements on energy lines called meridians.
These are channels of chi, or life force energy, which circulate through the physical body every 24 hours. Points on the meridians can become blocked due to physical and emotional pressure, and acupressure helps relieve the obstruction and move the energy through the channels once more.
