Chinese Acupressure is a centuries old practice that is widely accepted for the treatment of neurological conditions and pain — particularly pain from injury and accidents.

It is an ancient healing art that uses fingers to gradually press key healing points.

Acupressure is based on many of the same principals, physicality, conventions, and traditions as Acupuncture — but is less invasive. It is given without the use of needles, and the treatments are undertaken with the client fully clothed.

Yamaichi Acu-touch

Acu-touch is a highly effective, gentle form of fingertip palpation massage, which targets pain and stiffness stored in the body’s lymphatic system.

Mamoru Yamaichi developed Acu-touch over a 25-year period, from the 1980s to early 2000s. It has met with remarkable success in resolving chronic pain and muscle flexibility issues that many had come to accept as their permanent condition.

Afflictions considered difficult to treat — such as plantar fasciitis, frozen shoulder, and carpal tunnel syndrome — have all been successfully treated with Acu-touch. This methodology allows for long lasting relief from conditions that have often seemed impossible to improve.

I trained directly with Mamoru Yamaichi. I use either discipline, or a combination of the disciplines, along with my herbal and nutritional knowledge, to bring balance to my clients’ lives.

Scott's work is so effective! I have had pain in my shoulder for six months. Acupuncture, massage, and osteopathy just could not reach the depths of the issue. After two treatments with Scott my shoulder finally stopped hurting, and I have full range of motion. He is the only practitioner that has been able to get to those elusive points within my shoulder. I am so grateful to be out of pain after so long.
