Without Needles

Many people miss out on the effective calming and healing benefits of acupuncture because they fear needles. It is possible to treat most ailments without needles although the results will be slower.

The Montrose Clinic uses acupressure, massage, cupping, moxibustion, patent herbs or electro-pads instead of needles for those who have a phobia of needles. The choice of alternative will depend on the differential diagnosis made on the first visit.

Childrens' ailments respond quickly to acupressure and baby massage can be taught to parents for daily home treatment.
