Welcome to our Electro Acupuncture page! Here, we will provide you with all the information you need to know about Electro Acupuncture and how it can benefit you.
What is Electro Acupuncture?
Electro Acupuncture is a type of acupuncture that uses electrical stimulation on the acupuncture points. It involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body and then applying a small electric current through those needles. The electrical stimulation enhances the effectiveness of the treatment, making it more powerful and longer-lasting.
How Does Electro Acupuncture Work?
Electro Acupuncture works by stimulating the body's natural healing process. The electrical stimulation on the acupuncture points helps to increase blood flow and the production of endorphins and other natural painkillers in the body. This can help to reduce pain, inflammation, and promote relaxation.
What Conditions Can Be Treated with Electro Acupuncture?
Electro Acupuncture can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including:
Pain and inflammation
Anxiety and depression
What Can You Expect During an Electro Acupuncture Session?
During an Electro Acupuncture session, our licensed acupuncturist will first conduct a thorough evaluation of your condition and medical history. Based on the evaluation, the acupuncturist will select specific acupuncture points on your body to target.
The acupuncturist will then insert thin, sterile needles into the selected acupuncture points. Once the needles are in place, a small electrical current will be passed through them using a specialized machine. You may feel a slight tingling or pulsing sensation, but the treatment should not be painful.
The length of the treatment will vary depending on your condition, but it usually lasts between 20 to 30 minutes. During this time, you will be able to relax and rest comfortably.
Is Electro Acupuncture Safe?
Electro Acupuncture is generally considered to be a safe treatment option. The needles used are sterile and disposable, and the electrical stimulation is low-level and controlled. However, as with any medical treatment, there are some risks and potential side effects. Some people may experience minor bruising or bleeding at the site of the needles, but this is rare.
Electro Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment option for a variety of conditions. It works by stimulating the body's natural healing process and can help to reduce pain, inflammation, and promote relaxation.
