It is sometimes referred to as the needleless acupuncture because both techniques use acupoints that lie along the channels in your body, to achieve the desired results. Acupressure treatment is firm, controlled and timed pressure applied by thumb, fingers or elbow on specific acupoints. With the knowledge of which acupoints are responsible for particular health condition, you can attempt to self-treat yourself with acupressure.
