Electroacupuncture is a modern variation of acupuncture.
An acupuncture treatment is enhanced through the use of a machine which passes a low electric current (three to five mili hertz) through the small electrodes attached to the needles.
Electroacupuncture provides a deep piercing current that not only affects the surface of the skin but deep tissue as well.
Electro acupuncture can improve circulation, and is effective in treating chronic and sharp pain, numbness, etc.
We use electro acupuncture in combination with other modalities to bring about desired outcomes.
More about electro acupuncture
Electroacupuncture helps to block your pain by activating bioactive chemicals in your body. This process may decrease your sensitivity to the pain you’re feeling. It’s also been shown to help reduce inflammation in your body.
When you get electroacupuncture, it activates your sympathetic nerve fibers. By activating these fibers, your body releases endogenous opioids such as endorphins, which help to reduce inflammation. The activated nerve fibers may also help to reduce feelings of persistent pain. This makes it a good treatment for chronic pain and stress.
