accupressure

Posted by Kelsey J on 8/10/01 at 11:51 (056177)

At my podiatrist's recommendation, I am going to see an accupressurist. Has anyone tried this? What exactly is it? Does it help?

Accupressure involves the use of digital pressure on accupuncture points (fingers used instead of needles). I do not know how well it works. It is a means of pain control. I like the idea of pain control modalities as long as everything that needs to be done to treat the cause of the problem has or is being done.
