Top Customer Reviews
Also, I would like to comment on the review "snakeoil". I have been doing research about Michael Reed Gach and other acupressure instructors/practitioners and the so called "movement", and I do realize the skepticism because there are a lot of sham new age quacks out there preaching cures and other bogus messages, but acupressure is effective and can work for most people. Many acupoints are small and cannot be effectively used with just the fingers, but most of the basic/major ones can be. Just look at Japanese Shiatsu massage or Chinese Tunia massage, they both use acupoint/acupressure, and most acupuncturist teach acupressure to their patients to be used between acupuncture sessions.Read more ›
