Electric Acupuncture

Electric acupuncture is a technique that is sometimes utilized to promote muscle relaxation, stimulate circulation and lymphatic drainage, stimulate collagen production, aid in weight loss, tighten lax muscles, or

speed up the healing process of the body. Different waves and frequencies are used to achieve different effects. The amplitude or intensity of the treatment is adjusted according to the patient’s tolerance and may be re-adjusted (usually increased) if accommodation occurs.

There are many indications and utilizations for electric acupuncture. In general, the main applications are those conditions that involve disorders or injuries of the muscles and nerves or the musculoskeletal system. Some examples of conditions that respond well to electric acupuncture include but are not limited to: anti-aging, paralysis, neuropathy, pain conditions, muscle spasm, stroke, atrophy prevention, neuro-muscular re-education, and arthritis or degenerative joint disease.

The device used for this treatment is similar to a TENS unit that is sometimes used in physical therapy or by a chiropractor. The difference is that instead of pads being placed on the body, the electrodes are clipped directly onto the acupuncture needles for increased precision and direct stimulation. Pads may also be used if necessary.

The Acupuncture Physician will determine whether or not this modality is indicated and beneficial for the patient.
