Acupressure is believed to be the ‘mother of acupuncture’, in that it predates the use of needles to stimulate the body’s energy flow. It has the same principles as acupuncture, but the pressure is applied directly to the acupoints of the body, mainly by using the hands, fingers, thumb or knuckles and sometimes by using a smooth, blunt object. Stimulation of the body’s meridian system by touch is perhaps one of the oldest healing systems, and many other therapies use acupressure techniques.
Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practiced in China and other Eastern countries for over 3,000 years. It is based upon principles which aim to achieve balance and harmony within the body. Needles are gently inserted into carefully selected points on the channels of the body to stimulate the healing process. Acupuncture is now incorporated into NHS services. Some of the conditions that can be treated by Acupuncture are: Stress, anxiety, panic attacks, weight loss, fertility issues, back pain, insomnia, migraines and addiction.
