Acupressure calms aggressive behaviour caused by dementia

Acupressure uses the same theory and many of the same points that are used in acupuncture. The points are stimulated with your fingers, not the needles.

A small Taiwanese study has shown acupuncture to reduce agitation and aggression associated with dementia.

The good news is that relatives and nurses at the nursing homes can be trained to use this technique and make the care for dementia patients heaps easier.
