If traditional acupuncture is not for you, there are two forms of non-needle, or needleless, acupuncture that can be just as effective in providing relief. They include low level laser and acupressure.
- Low-level laser therapy (LLLT)
This non-needle or needleless acupuncture is a form of laser medicine used in physical therapy and veterinary treatment. The technique uses low-level (low-power) lasers or light-emitting diodes to alter cellular function and promote wellness, particularly for muscular conditions.Other names for the therapy include low-power laser, soft laser, cold laser, biostimulation laser, therapeutic laser, and laser acupuncture. Whereas high-power lasers ablate tissue, low-power lasers stimulate it and encourage the cells to function.
Acupressure is a technique similar — in principle — to acupuncture. It is based on the concept of life energy which flows through “meridians” in the body. In treatment, physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians. Pressure may be applied by hand, by elbow, or with various devices.Some medical studies have suggested that acupressure may be effective at helping manage nausea and vomiting, and at helping relieve lower back pain, tension headaches, stomach ache, and other similar conditions.
