Needles not for you? Alternatives like ear seeds, acupressure, and laser acupuncture.
The fear of or sensitivity to needles for many people can prevent them from receiving the assistance of acupuncture for commonly treated problems. At our Edmonton Acupuncture clinic, we use a variety of non-needle options for people who are sensitive to needles. These include acupressure, ear seed therapy, transcutaneous electro-stimulation, and more recently, low level laser stimulation of acupoints. Ear seeds, laser acutherapy, and electrostimulation can all be part of a full, private, 50 minute session.
Ear seed therapy (auricular therapy) is offered when the Edmonton Acupuncture community clinics are operating (not during pandemic)- this is the time you can schedule an Ear Seed session!
“Low-level laser” therapy is safe, pain-free, and scientifically demonstrated to be effective to stimulate acupoints and decrease pain, inflammation and stimulate tissue regeneration.
