Introducing of Acupressure, Part-1

 Introducing of Acupressure

What is acupressure?
Acupressure is a natural method of healing, achieved by  pressing various specific points in our body. It requires no medicines and has no bad side effects. The word acupressure comes from the word acupressure.

What is the root of the word Acupressure?
The word acupressure has its origin in the Latin word acupuncture `acus’ meaning needle and `puncture’ meaning to prick.

What is the difference between Acupressure and Acupuncture?
In acupuncture the pressure points are activated by needles. In acupressure needles are not necessary, the disease being alleviated by pressure alone. When the word `acus’ is used, it usually means `needle’.
In the context of acupressure it involves pressure being applied by the fingers or by a blunts instrument. Generally the pressure points in acupressure and acupuncture coincide. Researchers have found that if the same acupressure points are pressed instead of using needles, the results are the same. This is known as `Zone Therapy’.
