Electro-Acupuncture

Electro-acupuncture is a procedure in which low levels of electrical current from an e-stim device are run through acupuncture needles while they are retained in the patient.

Who benefits from Electro-Acupuncture?

Electro-acupuncture is especially effective for certain types of painful conditions like tennis elbow, sciatic pain, and muscle spasms. When appropriate, E-stim could be incorporated with an acupuncture visit.

What can I expect from an electro-acupuncture treatment session?

When receiving electro-acupuncture, an individual may feel a very slight sensation in the local area, but the process is not painful. Different waveforms and frequencies are utilized for different disorders and treatment plans. The feeling is something like leaning your arm against something that is vibrating, you feel the vibration hum through your arm, but there is not pain involved.
