Acupressure as Preventive Care

yoga as preventative care holistic

You may be familiar with some of these modalities: cupping, chiropractic, qigong, meditation, yoga, herb therapy and, of course, acupuncture and acupressure. These are called alternative, preventative and complimentary medicine. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, healthcare is not just a one-time visit to the doctor, but a combination of healthy choices. Taking care of your health by exercising, eating healthy, meditating, and other various activities are all part of healthy lifestyle. You are choosing to help your body maintain health and prevent injury from occurring!

If you have not experienced the above modalities, you may be more familiar with other daily routines. When you brush your teeth after your meals, go for a walk or jog, and eat healthy snacks, you are helping your body continue to be strong and healthy. You have decided to take action and prevent any health concerns from arising! This means preventative care!

Remember the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”? Well, there is a reason behind such a phrase. Basically, eating healthy would keep the doctor away. But you also have a combination of things you can do to keep the doctor away. Your choices to stay healthy are helping your body feel its best!

Now, with that being said, wouldn’t your pet benefit from preventative care too? Of course! Acupressure is a great way to encourage the body to continue to run at its best!
