Since acupuncture is not part of our culture as it is in China, I have found many ways to treat people in America with non-invasive methods that are as effective as traditional needle acupuncture.
While traditional acupuncture uses fine, sterile needles to stimulate points on the body to restore balance, points may also be stimulated without needles. I use an Acutron Mentor microcurrent stimulator for clients that prefer non-needle treatment. The Acutron is also used in Energy Light Rejuvenation, which is an acupuncture “facelift” without needles.
Acupuncture points can also be stimulated with pressure, cupping, gentle electric current and soft laser light.
