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.
