History

A recent form of pressure point massage developed by an American woman, Iona Marsaa Teegurden.


Theory

Releases chronic stress that has developed in muscles over many years.


Practice

A gentle and prolonged pressure is applied to the major site of the problem gradually increasing as the patient relaxes.


Assessment

As in many forms of massage, relaxation and the alleviating of tension usually results.
