When it comes to your health, you do have a choice.
Let's face it. Needles aren't for everyone. Even though acupuncture needles are small and thin, some people can't take the thought of voluntarily becoming a pin cushion no matter how much pain they're in.
That's where painless acupressure comes in. The practioner presses, kneads and massages the same points that would be used in an acupuncture treatment, producing a milder treatment response. You will also be instructed in the points that you can press yourself to help keep your symptoms at a minimum between treatments.
The ear is a microsystem of acupuncture. Specific spots on the ear correspond with different organs and body parts. Small ear seeds attached to adhesive tape are placed on these spots without puncturing the skin. You can press them on the go in between treatments. They are especially good for people who want to quit smoking or lose weight.
