Those looking to have more of a holistic approach to their care may be excited to learn about a new type of acupressure. This new acupressure treatment claims to help those suffering from chronic illnesses and different aches and pains.
This relatively new type of treatment was discovered by Korean researcher Mr. Sae-Yion Kim and started to gain popularity outside of Germany in 2017.
Chances are that you have never come across the acronym KSNS before. Kim’s Safety Nervous System (KSNS) was discovered after many years of research. The basis for Mr. Kim’s new acupressure technique focuses on a new type of nervous system and working with neural pathways throughout the body.
This technique is said to help activate the neural pathways believed to aid the body in its healing process. The treatment’s other benefit and focus are to help balance the nervous and circulatory systems. 
How it may help
This type of acupressure begins with a series of assessments to help pinpoint areas of discomfort and other problems patients may face, such as hip pain or headaches. Once these assessments are complete, patients will move on to treatment, targeting their body’s reflexes by focusing on ligaments, muscles, and tendons.
These treatments are purported to help those who have Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, joint pain, back pain, allergies, and more. You should also be aware that this treatment will not feel like a typical massage, and there may be some discomfort during your session. 
Mr. Kim has also written a book about this type of treatment called, A New Path in Natural Medicine: Theory and Practice; the protective function of the nervous system as the basis of a new holistic naturopathic treatment (KSS-Method-1). Here you can get more detailed information about this type of treatment.
