Acupressure Therapy in Salem, OR
Acupressure Therapy in Salem, OR: Acupressure uses gentle to firm finger pressure in the pressure points and meridians much like acupuncture does with the use of needles. As these acupressure points are stimulated, muscular tension releases, circulation of blood is promoted, and the body’s life force energy is enhanced to aid in healing.
Benefits of Acupressure:
- Releases tension
- Increases circulation
- Reduces pain
- Provides emotional therapeutic results
When used properly acupressure helps in promoting the circulation of blood. When you apply pressure to certain points it helps in activating and opening up the flow of blood in the blood vessels present below the skin. This increase in blood flow helps almost all organs in the body regenerate and perform optimally. Acupressure therapy can be used to relieve pain, fortify the sexual reproductive system, improve appearance, relieve tension in the back, and help heal emotional pain for greater health and beauty.
Acupressure Therapy is highly effective for relieving muscular tension in all areas of the back. Important points are located along either side of the spine and on the upper back. Many people especially appreciate the release of tightness associated with lower back pain and sciatica. By relaxing and toning the back muscles, Acupressure makes the spinal adjustments easier and more effective, and the chiropractic results last longer. In fact, Acupressure and chiropractic treatments were originally practiced together in ancient China.
Acupressure has been known for centuries as the best remedy for common ailments like a headache, sinusitis and cold. The practice helps relieve pain and has been found useful especially to help people with headaches – drastically reducing the dependence on over-the-counter medicines.

This is the best experience I have had with a chiropractor. The doctor explained everything he was doing very thoroughly and professionally and helped me to understand why I was experiencing certain aches and pains and how I could alleviate those using massage and stretching techniques on my own. I felt comfortable and safe in this clean and friendly environment and will definitely be back for weekly follow up! I already feel so much better after my first appointment today. Highly recommend Dr. Whitmire and is team at the clinic!
I recommend this office to anyone who is in pain. I call Dr Whitmire my miracle worker. He always makes sure that I know exactly what he is doing and why. I get more information from him than I do with ANY other doctor in ANY field Ive ever been to! I love the office staff as well. It’s kind of like a big family. And the massages are to die for. Seriously folks…… If you need a chiropractor…….you cannot do better than Dr Whitmire!!!!
I’ve been so skeptical of chiropractic work until I talked with Dr. Whitmore. He has may years of education, practice, experience, and most of all he has people skills. He offers his patients information about what the treatment is, how it’s applied, what benefits there are, and an open mind. His knowledge of sports medicine really takes his work to the next level for patients with severe injuries. I would recommend his office to everyone.
Dr. Whitmire did a great job when I went to see him for some low back pain. He was very knowledgeable and helped me to get pain free quickly. I have recommended him and his clinic to family and friends.
Love these people and everything they do. They are amazing and listen to all your needs.

In the spring of 2014 I began visiting Dr. Whitmire for treatment of Migraine headaches. After a thorough evaluation he adjusted my neck bringing immediate relief of pain and Migraine symptoms. My primary care physician at the time only prescribed narcotic pain medication and told me to come back when my prescription ran out. The migraines were so frequent that I had to choose between being incapacitated by the migraines or the narcotics. After only a few visits with Dr. Whitmire the frequency of my migraines began to subside and I was able to quit taking the narcotics all together. In the fall of 2014 I was in a motorcycle accident. I landed in a jackknife position on the small of my back. After an Urgent care visit, X-Rays, and a new prescription for narcotics, my primary care physician suggested seeing a surgeon and said that there was little he could do but continue prescribing pain medication. Again I visited Dr. Whitmire. After another thorough assessment he adjusted my spine. The treatments required many visits and adjustments, but Dr. Whitmire was persistent and consistent in providing care. It took 6 months for me to fully recover from my injuries. Without Dr. Whitmire’s help, I would probably still be recovering today. Dr. Whitmire always takes the time to listen and and answer questions. His gift for healing has blessed my life.
