Acupuncture is a system of healthcare which has been used in the Far East for over 2000 years to restore, promote and maintain good health. It is a drug-free way to manage your health and decrease stress. Acupuncture involves using thin, sterile needles on the skin to stimulate certain points of the body. The treatment is safe when performed by a professionally trained and qualified acupuncturist. At its core, acupuncture promotes natural self-healing. It is mostly used for the treatment of pain in areas such as the back, knee, and shoulder. Sensations such as heat and pressure can be applied through the use of the needles.
Acupressure is an alternative technique similar in principle to acupuncture. It is based on the concept of life energy which flows through "meridians" in the body. In acupressure treatment, physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians; so there are no needles used. Acupressure helps to correct functional imbalances and restore the energy flow thus returning the body to a more natural state of well-being.
