Vernon Acupuncture

Vernon Acupuncture - The essential difference between Acupressure and Acupuncture is that the latter uses thin needles in addressing health issues, while acupressure does not break your skin. Both of these methods of holistic medicine have a lot in common. They are each based on the touching meridians that carry chi or energy all over the system. Traditional Chinese Medicine or likewise referred to as TCM believes that illnesses and ailments are produced by blockages of chi in several part of the body along the fourteen meridians. Both Acupuncture and Acupressure encourage energy to flow freely over again. These healing methods are used to heal a wide variety of concerns like migraine headaches, allergies, menstrual cramps, nausea, anxiety and depression as well as arthritis amongst others.

Basically the difference between Acupressure and Acupuncture is in the application of the techniques. Acupuncture methods should just be done by skilled practitioners of Conventional Chinese Medicine. Certain combinations of pressure points are simultaneously accessed all together. Since the Acupuncturist must insert the very thin, long needles into the skin, the patient typically disrobes before treatment.

Acupuncture literally means to puncture the skin utilizing long needles just as the name suggests. The needle used are extremely thin and are not the same as the needles utilized to be able to inject fluids. These needles do not inject anything. Acupuncture needles are hypoallergenic, flexible lengths of sterile and disposable metal. A qualified expert delicately inserts the needle under the skin and into tissue and muscle. This does not hurt if it is done correctly. The aim of the needles is to be able to reach pressure points and break up the blockages.

Acupressure however can simply be learned from a handbook. The techniques to manipulate pressure points to be able to lessen common discomforts can even be seen online. It is probable and normally somewhat comforting to do these mini massages on yourself anywhere. For example, massaging the muscle located between your thumb and index finger is said to ease dehydration headaches. Another common point is pressing on a particular spot on the inner side of your forearm to ease motion sickness. An Acupressurist usually touches one or two pressure points at a time. They often use their elbows, palms, thumbs and fingers. As these methods are the same as a massage, they could be administered through loose clothes and disrobing is not commonly needed.

Dating back as far back as 2500 BCE China, Acupressure is a a lot older art compared to Acupuncture. Recently, the two treatment alternatives have been evaluated by western standards of medicine. These therapies are becoming generally accepted and normally used in conjunction with various treatments. For example, patients of chemotherapy who are experiencing intense vomiting can use Acupressure applied through a bracelet to get consistent results and cure nausea.

Acupuncture methods require a great amount of precision to position really small needles. This technique can bring relief far quicker. The tool for Acupressure is as wide as finger making this procedure much less precise. Acupuncture, even if it could offer potentially speedier relief, may come with more announced side effects from releasing toxins or realigning muscle groups. Acupressure causes less side effects and is like deep tissue massage.
