Used in combination with a wellness program, I have found that the need for pharmaceuticals drop off to a trickle. Acupressure is powerful too.

In brief: Very Relaxing

I have many patients say that acupuncture is more relaxing than massage.
Some say that it can produce an almost hypnotic sensation.

In brief: That depends

It depends on what type of treatment you are receiving.
Five gates, kaufman's cocktail and the auricular trauma protocol are particularly good for relaxation.
