For many people, just the thought of needles is very intimidating and can be a deal breaker for someone considering acupuncture. If you are one of those individuals there are other treatment options that don’t involve needles! Traditional Chinese Medicine uses many different techniques that are very effective for treating pain and illness.
Some of your other options are:
Auricular Seed Therapy. The ear is covered with acu-points that correspond with systems in the entire body. A health diagnosis can even be made by simply looking at the ear. After locating the exact points needed to help the condition Dr. Caron applies small seeds with medical tape. The seeds stay in place for about a week and you activate the points by giving them a squeeze throughout your day. The area may be tender from the seeds, but there are no needles involved.
Auriculotherapy, or auricular therapy, or ear acupuncture, or auriculoacupuncture is a form of alternative medicine based on the idea that the ear is a micro-system of the entire body represented on the auricle, the outer portion of the ear. Ailments of the entire body are assumed to be treatable by stimulation of the surface of the ear exclusively. Similar mappings are used in reflexology and iridology.
