Grandmaster Jimmy R. Jagtiani, specialist in Martial Art Acupressure & Physical Therapy.


Martial Art Acupressure is a healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force to aid healing.

Foremost among the advantages of Martial Art Acupressure is that there are no side effects from drugs, because there are no drugs.
