Acupressure is quite limited compared to what you can accomplish with proper acupuncture treatments. While we don’t provide recommendations via our site, you are in an area with a tremendous number of practitioners - so any one of those that practices the full gamut of Chinese Medicine - acupuncture, herbal medicine, and, ideally, tuina (medical massage) should be fine.

As for a general idea of some things which can improve the circulation in the brain - that is large part of our system as we approach not just issues such as stroke or dementia but also MS, Parkinson’s, etc.
While not completely related to your question, some of our discussion of the window of the sky points as we use them you can find in my article “Autism Treatments - Brain Inflammation and the Role of Sky Window Acupuncture Points from the Tam Healing System”. And while we often do needle many of these points, we most consistently use them with tuina/acupressure.

As for herbal formulas, these are generally very tailored to the individual but at their base level you have formulas from a category such as “invigorate the blood and dispel stasis” such as Bu Yang Huan Wu Wan which has potential applications post-stroke along with other traumas and then approaches from, for example, the “tonify the yin” category such as Liu Wei Di Huang Wan which come from a nourishment/adaptogenic/longevity related perspective.

What is right for the individual depends greatly on their diagnosis in Chinese Medicine terms - see “treating the cause vs. the symptoms” and “how to choose a formula” for more on that.
