Very basically, Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles (sometimes in conjunction with electrical stimulus) on the body's surface in order to influence physiological functioning of the body. |
Acupuncture can also be used in conjunction with heat produced by burning specific herbs, this is called Moxibustion. In addition, a non-invasive method of massage therapy, called Acupressure, can also be effective.
Another popular treatment method is Moxibustion, which is the treatment of diseases by applying heat to Acupuncture points. Acupuncture and Moxibustion are considered complimentary forms of treatment and are commonly used together.
Tui Na Massage
Acupressure is the pressing of acupoints, but Tui Na (or Tuina, pronounced 'twee-nah') makes use of many different strokes that are applied to acupoints, channels and muscle groups.
