Only the professionals know the right points where to manipulate the needles and a layman can never figure out where the acupuncture or qi points are. Through this technique, the Chinese have treated numerous problems since ages and continue to do so to date. Acupuncture has proven to be an immensely successful strategy for health and medical purposes and is practiced all around the globe. However, some of its most authentic practitioners might be available only in China. One of the most popular practices related to acupuncture is acupressure which has been known to be an excellent way to relief stress. It is also often mentioned as Tuina and uses techniques to treat problems without needles and using bare hands only. Where acupuncture has never been endorsed by international organizations such as World Health Organization (WHO), UK’s National Health Service, National Institutes of Health of the United States and National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, acupressure is a rather acceptable form of Chinese medicine.
The use of needles, according to a few circles, is not an appreciable way of treating and is too painful to be acceptable on humanitarian grounds. At the same time though, many people have come out claiming that they found acupuncture a very helpful form of treatment. Thus, its field that uses bare hands has been accepted. Acupressure is also treats several problems but is mainly known for being highly effective on stress. Since it uses bare hands, it is probably a massage kind of a treatment which stimulates the stress hormones, thus rejuvenating the mind, body and soul and bringing a person, back to energetic and active lifestyle. By effectively alleviating stress, acupressure makes up for a healthy body, healthy functionality of the organs and a peaceful sleep. The amazing thing about this treatment is that it does the job by reaching into the root cause of the problems rather than what is apparent. For instance, headache is a tension which may be rooted in the shoulders or the neck. This is how massages are done in this form of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the massages are so powerful and accurate that they actually work wonders for patients.
Using chemical based medications might be the quickest way to treat problems that know today but going for something of this sort can be truly fruitful. It would solve problems for long term, have no side effects and heal an individual in the most peaceful way. Thus, acupressure can be given a shot for people facing stress or related problems.
