Electroacupuncture is an acupuncture technique that utilizes electrical stimulation in conjunction with needle insertion.
Our acupuncturist uses a device that generates electrical impulses and this is attached to the acupuncture needles. The areas treated are the same but this method provides additional stimulation to muscle cells. This promotes quicker pain relief and reduction of symptoms.
Electroacupuncture is a relatively recent development in acupuncture and its long history with a holistic and natural approach to pain management.
Research shows that in some conditions use of electroacupuncture results in lowered pain perception.
Electroacupuncture provides additional benefits including decreased pain sensation allowing for improved functional capacity and a return to normal activities.
