Massage therapist Michelle Kluck offers simple acupressure techniques to trigger the release of endorphins and solve health problems from allergies to anxiety to arthritis. She starts this 25-minute tape with a brief explanation of acupressure and its effect on the flow of a body's energy and then quickly launches into demonstrations. The first five minutes are dedicated to work with a partner. In voice-over, she instructs the viewer on technique ("Apply pressure on the exhale") and lists benefits of each pressure point while she demonstrates working on a partner's head, neck, and back. The balance of the video is dedicated to self-massage, starting with the temples and working down to the various reflexology points on the sole of the foot. With its clear instructions, easy-to-emulate visuals, and short length, this tape should provide immediate benefits for the motivated viewer. --Kimberly HeinrichsFrom the Back Cover :
