A Distance Learning Diploma Course of 12 Lessons

Acupressure Course

Acupressure is the application of pressure to the body to enhance the flow of energy (variously referred to as ‘Ki’, ‘Chi’ or ‘Prana’) in the 12 main bi-lateral meridians, according to the principles of Oriental medicine. This therapy is widely used in China where more emphasis is given to a person’s responsibility for their own health than it is in the Western world.

Acupressure is believed to be the ‘Mother of Acupuncture’, in that it predates the use of needles to stimulate the body’s energy flow. It has the same principles as Acupuncture, but the pressure is applied directly to the Acupoints of the body mainly by using the hands, fingers, thumbs or knuckles. Stimulation of the body’s meridian system by touch is perhaps one of the oldest and most effective healing systems.

Our course is open to both ‘practicing therapists’ and individuals who have an interest to learn this skill. This in-depth course will lead you step-by-step through the treatment sequence and teach you everything you need to know in order to become a Professional in your field.

There is a link from our course material to an ‘instructional video’, which demonstrates the Acupoints used in Acupressure, presented by a Professional Therapist.

No previous knowledge is required to study this subject; we train our students from beginner to practitioner/therapist level.

Acupressure Course Feedback

Just a quick note to say, I have received my Acupressure certificate, which will be proudly displayed, next to my Reiki certificates. I wanted to say thank you to everyone at the School of Natural Health Sciences, for all the support and
kindness you have afforded me. Special thanks to George, my tutor, for his guidance and empathy.

Even if I do not use my qualification professionally, it is really helping me to help family and friends, whilst making me feel like I have achieved a worthwhile goal. I am helping friends and family, where I can. I hope to go on to help  others, after gaining more experience.

Thanks again for helping me to achieve my final exam, with such a high grade.

I have thoroughly enjoyed your Acupressure course and, as with all the subjects I am studying with SNHS, I am impressed by the exercises you provide with each module. They are so well structured in the way that they cross-reference various precepts to maximise comprehension, and retention of vital information.

It is not easy to gauge the progress of students at a distance, but you have found an effective way of achieving this necessary goal.

My best wishes to you and all the staff for a joyful festive season and a peaceful New Year.

I am very happy I discovered your school!

You are very kind in your appreciation about my Acupressure final examination and even I am not a native English speaker and I am sure I had a lot of grammar mistakes, I tried to do my best in good answers. Thank you for your patience with me.

I will be interested in an International Diploma. I understand I must follow another 2 courses. I learn now the Diabetes course from your school ( I followed a special massage diabetes course for feet and this is useful for me ) and I will think to another course.

Thank you Julia, your appreciation means very much for me.
