Acupressure

Acupressure is an alternative medicine 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, for helping lower back pain, tension headaches, stomach ache, among other things, although such studies have been found to have a high likelihood of bias. Like many alternative medicines, it may benefit from a placebo effect.

  • To all of the staff at the Parvati Hospital. I felt I must write and thank you for the care and consideration shown to me over the last six months, when I have been undergoing various tests in your department. Times like this are always worrying and stressful, but your friendly welcoming attitude and professional and jargon-free communication make us comfortable.

  • I had met with an accident. When I had visited the Parvati Hospital, my father-in-law and I have been very impressed by the positive atmosphere, friendly and professional attitude of all of the staff. I do not normally like coming to hospital (for obvious reasons), however, the expert care and attention received in this clinic makes such a great difference.
