Oriental Acupressure opens at Calhoun Square


A new massage parlor at Calhoun Square doesn’t want anyone to feel priced out.

“A lot of people want a massage, but it is expensive,” said owner Cherry Wang.

She said many of her customers opt for $22, 25-minute massages designed to combat the pressures of work stress, focusing on shoulder pain, neck pain, headaches and lower back pain.

Wang also operates a location at the Northtown Mall that has been open eight years. She opened Oriental Acupressure this fall at Calhoun Square. 

“Some people have come back three or four times already,” said Brian Trinh, marketing manager of Calhoun Square.

“Acupressure” is often called acupuncture without the needles, according to the storefront’s description. It’s a traditional Chinese healing art that focuses on trigger points that relieve muscular tension and enhance blood flow.

The business accepts walk-in customers, though appointments are preferred.
