Natural Health Courses School


A Diploma Correspondence Course of 12 Lessons.


Home study is the modern, flexible way to learn holistic medicine. No attendance is necessary.

All courses are conducted by distance learning.

This course leads to a Practitioner/Therapist Level Qualification.



Acupressure is the application of pressure to the body to enhance the flow of energy (variously referred to as 'Ki', 'Chi' or 'Prana') in the 12 main bi-lateral meridians, according to the principles of Oriental medicine. This therapy is widely used in China where more emphasis is given to a person's responsibility for their own health than it is in the Western world. 

Acupressure is believed to be the 'Mother of Acupuncture', in that it predates the use of needles to stimulate the body's energy flow. It has the same principles as Acupuncture, but the pressure is applied directly to the Acupoints of the body mainly by using the hands, fingers, thumbs or knuckles. Stimulation of the body's meridian system by touch is perhaps one of the oldest and most effective healing systems.

Acupressure Course Feedback

Dear Julia,

Thank you very much.  I have thoroughly enjoyed your Acupressure course and, as with all the subjects I am studying with SNHS, I am impressed by the exercises you provide with each module.  They are so well structured in the way that they cross-reference various precepts to maximise comprehension, and retention of vital information.  It is not easy to gauge the progress of students at a distance, but you have found an effective way of achieving this necessary goal.


My best wishes to you and all the staff for a joyful festive season and a peaceful New Year.


Best wishes,
