Electro acupuncture is quite similar to traditional acupuncture in that the same points are stimulated during treatment electrotherapy aims to stimulate the body’s healing processes by sending electrical impulses through the channels, muscles and nerves.
Electrical stimulation is most commonly associated with pain management as it promotes the release of endogenous neurotransmitters such as beta-endorphin, a natural analgesic. Additionally electrotherapy can be effective for treating Bi syndromes (rheumatic and arthritic conditions), channel stagnation and musculoskeletal trauma.
Does electro acupuncture hurt?
While it is a safe and effective treatment however patients may experience a tingling sensation while being treated with electro acupuncture, which is most likely due to the electric current but no pain should be felt.
What’s the difference between electro acupuncture and traditional acupuncture?
As with traditional acupuncture, needles are inserted on specific points along the body. The needles are then attached to a device that generates continuous electric pulses using small clips. These devices are used to adjust the frequency and intensity of the impulse being delivered, depending on the condition being treated. Electroacupuncture uses two needles at time so that the impulses can pass from one needle to the other.
instead of being inserted.
What conditions can electro acupuncture treat?
According to the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, illness is caused when qi does not flow properly throughout the body. Acupuncturists determine whether qi is weak, stagnant or otherwise out of balance, which indicates the points to be stimulated.
Electroacupuncture is considered to be especially useful for conditions in which there is an accumulation of qi, such as in chronic pain syndromes, or in cases where the qi is difficult to stimulate.
