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.
