Acupressure is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that belongs to the same family of massage therapy as acupuncture. However, it does not use needles but rather reaches pressure points through vigorous massages.

The stimulation of the sensory nerves encourages the release of natural substances, such as endorphins, which block pain signals and help to provide relief for pregnancy symptoms. Acupressure is perfect for those who fear needles but still require some relief from aches, pains and discomfort.

Acupressure is often used to induce labour for post-term pregnancies and is very successful at treating morning sickness and reducing nausea, allowing the mother to continue her day-to-day business.

However there are certain pressure points that it is not recommended to use during pregnancy so only use an acupuncture therapist who is certified and specialises in pregnancy to ensure your safety and ease.

There are two areas of the foot that should be avoided during pregnancy. They are the reflexology areas directly connected to the uterus and ovaries, which are located on the inside and outside of both ankles in the hollow areas just under the ankle bones.
