Princeton Integrative Health Center

Acupressure and Therapeutic Massage

We offer two different forms of massage to complement our acupuncture and naturopathic services.

Acupressure (with and without Electro-Stim) – Helen (Mei) Xu, LMBT

Acupressure is a Chinese healing modality which is when pressure is applied to certain meridian points on the body to relieve pain. The human body possesses 12 different primary “meridians”/energy channels that carry energy throughout the body.

We are fortunate to have a trained specialist in Chinese acupressure modality who applies an electro-stimulation pads to the soles of your feet.  This provides a deeper application of pressure with electric vibration to loosen muscles and reduce local pain.
