Acupuncture or Acupressure
Acupuncture and Acupressure are oriental therapies which utilise certain points on the surface of the body to influence internal organs. In Acupuncture, specific points are pierced with needles whereas in Acupressure, the same points are stimulated by deep pressure with a finger-tip or a blunt object. The WHO has given due recognition to these therapies.
It has been seen time and again that when acupuncture or acupressure treatment is added to diet and exercise, the need of medicines diminishes considerably. In quite a few cases, medicines can be discarded altogether.
Diabetes is a life-long disease and its control a life-timeresponsibility. In diabetes, acupressure is preferable to acupuncture because the former can be performed by the patient himself.
The description of acupressure points:
Method of giving pressure : Each point should be rythmically pressed for a minute, with the finger (or thumb) tip or the blunt end of a pencil. Treatment can be had at any time, but the time one hour after meals is preferable.
Acupressure treatment is absolutely safe and devoid of side-effects. Yet it is considerably effective as can be seen from successful clinical trials and the statistical data available.
