Are Needles Used in Acupressure?
No, needles are not used in acupressure massage. While acupunture and acupressure share common roots, acupunture involves the insertion of hair-thin, disposable needles into the skin. The needles are inserted gently and painlessly into acupuncture points along meridians on the body.
With Acupressure, instead of needles, practitioners use fingers to apply pressure to these meridian points on the body.
Needleless options are available for our advanced acupressure massage.
