In brief: Method istimulation
Both methods aim to stimulate acupuncture points under the skin, acupressure using massage and acupuncture using small needles.
We can also use heat, electricity, ultrasound, or low intensity laser to stimulate the points, so it can be completely painless.

In brief: Yes
Acupuncture can be used in conjunction with electrical stimulation.
The needles allow for more exact localization of treatment and much greater depth of treatment compared to acupupressur. The electrical stimulation can make for stronger treatment. Both have similar principals and can be very beneficial.
