Acupuncture is a branch of traditional Chinese medicine that makes use of a therapeutic method called acupressure. It's a common form of traditional medicine that's been around for a long time. The practice of allopathic medicine, which is widely used, is founded on scientific investigation, investigation, and trial.

What Are Acupressure Clinical Trials?

Studies on acupuncture and acupressure for postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) have been conducted as anesthesiologists seek strategies to enhance patient outcomes without the use of antiemetic medicines, which come with their own set of dangers and expenses.

Why Is Acupressure Being Studied In Clinical Trials?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) recognizes the vast therapeutic potential of acupressure. Because of its low risk and expense, as well as the fact that it may easily be self-administered, it is an attractive CAM intervention in mainstream Western medicine. Several systematic reviews have been conducted on the effectiveness of acupressure in the last decade due to the increased quality of the research on the practice.

How Does Acupressure Treatment Work?

The underlying idea behind acupuncture is that the body is always being nourished by vital energy.

Many acupoints serve as a crossroads for the body's meridian energy. Kirlian photography reveals these meridian nodes.

Kirlian photography is an electrophotographic method used to analyze the domains of life. Acupuncturists have used this photography to show the reality of meridian points all throughout the body.

Experimental and theoretical studies have demonstrated the human body's ability to produce a specific voltage or current.

How Acupressure Works Scientifically?

Due to a poor lifestyle, these energy points may get stagnated, and the energy starts to accumulate in the point. This doesn’t supply the necessary energy for the organs to function efficiently.

Using the techniques of acupuncture and acupressure, the stagnation in the energy points is released and thus healing the condition of the body.

The treatment is like connecting back a short-circuited electric wire so that the current flow is returned to normal.

Although there is no experimental scientific proof for this scenario, many acupuncturists have felt the electric shock obtained while treating some patients.

When bodies with opposite polarity come into contact, it breaks the potential barrier in the energy meridians. This has been experienced by practicing acupuncturists.

That is why acupuncturists use bi-metallic needles for giving treatment. Similarly, while using the acupressure technique over the meridian, regulates the energy flow.
