WVA Wellness Program Presents Acupressure Therapy Provided October 8, 2018 West Virginia Wellness, LLC, in conjunction with its mission to provide education and learning about Alternative types of therapy, will present Kari Sand-Jecklin, MSN, RN, AHN-BC on Sunday, Oct. 14, at the Ohio County Library at 3 p.m. “Acupressure is a complementary therapy similar to acupuncture, except that the provider uses gentle finger pressure rather than thin needles to stimulate acupoints on the skin,” Sand-Jecklin explained. “Acupressure has been used for thousands of years to assist in management of a number of health conditions as well as to promote holistic well-being. In fact, a number of studies have shown acupressure is effective in managing nausea, pain, anxiety and insomnia,” she said. Her presentation will include a background in the reasoning behind the use of acupressure as well as demonstrations of some simple acupressure points that have been found for symptom management.
