Question : Acupressure or Acupuncture?

In Details : Is acupressure generally as effective as acupuncture?

1969 days ago       1 Answer(s)

The basic difference between acupressure and acupuncture is that in acupuncture thin needles are used to pierce the skin and in acupressure your skin is not pierced. Otherwise both follow the same principal of treatment that is to address the energy points and adjust the energy flow of the body to cure diseases. Traditional Chinese Medicine is used to clear the blocked energy channels and ensure that energy is allowed to flow freely. Both can cure multiple health issues like allergies, arthritis, depression, nausea, migraine headaches, menstrual cramps, and anxiety
