Acupressure is a variant of acupuncture and involves stimulating the acupuncture points with therapeutic massage without using needles.
Acupressure works using the same principle as acupuncture and can be used for a wide range of conditions such as headaches, nausea and vomiting, stress and anxiety, insomnia and sinus problems. Because acupressure does not involve needles, it is often a useful alternative for children or those with a fear of needles.
Ear-seed acupressure is a type of acupressure and involves the application of adhesive herbal ear-seed pads on certain acupuncture points on your ear. These subtle ear-seed pads can be left in the ear for up to three days and we will teach you to massage the points routinely on a daily basis. Ear-seed pads can be stimulated in between consultations and are most commonly used as an additional therapy for conditions which may require momentary supplementary stimulation such as addictions related to smoking, alcohol or food, and for insomnia and stress.
