Before comparing acupuncture and massage; we’ll briefly introduce these two amazing techniques.
Acupuncture as a natural treatment to provide pain relief has been studied widely and research data is suggestive of its effective results. Acupuncture is best to employ in acute pain. It has been found that acupuncture provides a long term and sustained relief from pain as compared to certain pain killers with a short-term effect.
Is Massage Better Than Acupuncture?
If you are having a sharp and stabbing pain, it means that nerves are over activated due to an injury or muscle injury. Such type of pain needs to be abolished as soon as possible and acupuncture is the recommended choice here. The acupuncturist will use the needles to rectify the blood and energy area of the affected area and you will get prompt relief.
In case of dull and chronic mild body pains, massage is your friend here. It will relax the tensed muscle and increase the blood flow to an optimum level. A massage session of 30 minutes will take away your dull tiredness and will make you feel fresh, restoring your natural energy.
