Acupressure is similar to acupuncture

The difference between acupuncture and acpressure is, acupuncture uses needles to stimulate pressure points whereas acupressure uses manual pressure to access those pressure points.  The aim is to clear blockages in the body's meridians. Pressure may be applied by hand, by elbow, or with various devices.
