Telehealth (Online) Acupuncture Vancouver
Your Telehealth (Online) Acupuncture appointment will focus on the traditional acupuncture points through the use of physical pressure with your hands rather than the insertion of acupuncture needles. This is commonly referred to as acupressure.
Acupressure utilizes the same points and medical theory as used in Traditional Acupuncture. Hands and fingers are used to apply steady pressure to specific points on the body. This pressure stimulates the nervous system, increases blood flow and regulates the body’s own energy which in turn helps us to function better as the body tries to heal itself.
Along with your symptoms subsiding, you will feel a peaceful nourishing relaxation similar to when you receive traditional acupuncture. Once you learn point locations appropriate for managing your symptoms ,you’ll be able to stimulate them throughout the day for ongoing relief.
Traditional Acupuncture will have a deeper more permanent effect on your nervous system but acupressure is vital and beneficial to learn for your immune, physical, and mental health during this time of social distancing.
