Many people do not know that there is a difference between acupuncture and acupressure. Both these methods are old methods of treatment coming from China and reflecting the oriental view on the healing. That means that when a doctor cures a patient he tries to cure not only his body, but also his soul, mind and emotions. The oriental medicine sees the body and the soul as a whole that can not be cured separately, and it is a great advantage of the Chinese medicine to help cure all sides of human's health.
Still the acupuncture is a method of treatment that presupposes stimulating the certain points of the body connected with the certain organs with the help of inserting needles into the acupoints. And needleless acupuncture is a method of curing, which means that a doctor just presses certain meridian points of the body with his thumbs or fingers. In acupressure no needles are used. These both methods are mostly used to relieve the pain of the body, but they are still used for healing many other serious illnesses and diseases.
Speaking about the meridian points that the doctors press when using the needleless acupuncture, it should be noted that it is known that a human body possesses fourteen meridians that carry the energy through all the human body. It is claimed that the given meridians begin at the fingertips, go to the brain and then reach the organ that is connected with the meridian. As it has been mentioned above, the acupressure science as well as all oriental medicine deals with the body and soul as a whole, and that is why after needleless acupuncture seance a patient gets relaxed and high-spirited, not mentioning the positive physical effect. The body and soul energy gets balanced and a person feels complete harmony.
There is a list of the diseases, with which acupressure can cope, and they are: healing stress and depression, relaxing mind and body, stimulating circulation of the blood in the body, purifying the body from toxic substances, relief from pain in the neck, head and shoulders. Needleless acupuncture also provides help in healing the wounds or other injuries, lessening labour pain, increasing vitality of the body and many other disorders and diseases.
At a seance of needleless acupuncture treatment a patient usually is lying on the special massage sofa and he does not need to get undressed. A doctor softly presses the necessary points of the body that are connected with the mentioned meridians. The seance usually lasts for about an hour, and the acupressure sessions are more gentle than the seances of acupuncture. So acupuncture is used in more serious cases that demand more intensive healing.
The advantages of the needleless acupuncture are that there are no side effects at such treatment as the treatment is soft and light. In addition it must be said that sometimes needles can be even harmful if they are not inserted properly and the fingers can not do any harm to the body and health. Also the important positive moment is that when a doctor presses the points, he gives his own energy to the body of a patient and it helps him too. The direct contact between a doctor and a patient is very important and the exchange of the energies does them both good.
