During this course, students will discover the theories, practices and techniques of acupressure – an ancient Chinese healing therapy that targets blockages in the flow of ones Chi, to eradicate illness or discomfort from the body. Learn how acupressure works, how to apply the therapy, and the steps to take to open a business helping clients to overcome their conditions.
Acupressure is based on the concept of life energy (also known as Chi or Qi), which flows through the body along pathways known as meridians. The belief is that many of the discomforts or even diseases that we suffer with are a result of blockages occurring in these meridians, causing a negative effect to the flow of our life energy. Acupressure is an alternative medicine technique that identifies specific points on the body (known as acupoints) where the flow of our life force is being hindered and, rather than using needles as acupuncture does, uses precise finger placement to apply pressure to these areas to unblock the pathway, freeing up the flow of life force and relieving symptoms.
It is particularly effective in the relief of stress-related ailments and preventive health care for boosting the immune system. It releases tension, increases circulation, reduces pain, and develops spirituality and can be applied to the self, as well as others.
Studying the Acupressure Diploma Course, you will learn exactly what this ancient practice is and the how it works, the theories behind it, what the different types of acupressure are, common ailments that can be helped with the treatment, and the precautions you should take when applying acupressure.

The first thing I want to portray is that this course is very informing and detailed. The information is professional and practice oriented. It it paired with some useful exercises. The diploma comes with CPD credits. However what disappointed me a lot was the way in which the information is given. It is only via text. So in essence you pay money for a online book which you cannot even download. The next disappointing thing is that the course uses some outdated science which has been disproven. Namely the eye accessing cues. The movements of the eyes are not correlated with memory or construction of a lie.
As a Teaching Assistant in a primary school where we have a number of children who are on The Spectrum, this course and the ABA Therapy course have both been amazing for my Continuous Personal Development. I don't think I've ever studied anything that has had such an immediate and profound effect on my work life before. Getting a distinction in both of these courses has really impressed our Headmistress and Governers too which is a bonus! Plus Kate and Steph have been brilliantly supportive (not to mention patient LOL) throughout the entire process.
