The power to thwart chronic pain lies in the hands of your acupressurist at Sukha Shack, with the goal of restoring health and balance by removing the blockages that keep clients' energy stuck. This ancient Chinese practice—basically, acupuncture without the needles—relies on the stimulation of key pressure points along the body’s chi highways that serve as pathways for energy to flow between vital organ systems. Sukha Shack practitioners use either their hands or blunt instruments to apply pressure to these points in order to create a release of the body's tension. This simple technique can improve skin texture and restore a youthful appearance. It can also reduce symptoms of depression, stress, chronic pain, fatigue, nausea and vomitting during pregnancy or after chemotherapy, chronic headaches, sports injuries, menstrual cramps and more.
