Alternative medicine is any healing practice "that does not fall within the realm of conventional medicine" or "that which has not been shown consistently to be effective." In some instances, it is based on historical or cultural traditions, rather than a scientific (e.g. evidence-based) basis.

Acupressure and Acupuncture
They are both ancient Chinese therapies. According to ancient Chinese theory, health is determined by 'chi', the vital life energy. This energy flows through body along pathways called meridians, each of which is linked to a specific organ. If the flow of energy is balanced, the individual has good health. If this flow is interrupted, various problems occur. Acupressure and acupuncture restore health by restoring the normal flow of 'chi'.
