Dr. Grossman began his formal study of acupuncture in 1983 enabling him to treat a wider range of health problems and maintaining a special interest in the management of pain. By looking at pain from a traditional acupuncture approach, he is very familiar with moxa, a form of acupuncture which uses heat via a stick of non-toxic insence. This is acupuncture without needles. Many of the techniques which he uses have been used for centuries! Cultures only do things which are proven to be true over long periods of time.
