Electro-acupuncture is the application of a pulsating electrical current to acupuncture needles. This was originally developed as a way to enhance or replace the need for hand stimulation of the needles. The electro-acupuncture device allows for a more extended treatment, a more accurate level of stimulation and if necessary a stronger treatment.
Electro-acupuncture is most commonly used for neurological or musculoskeletal conditions such as chronic pain, spasms and paralysis. The use of this device can enhance the results in many of these conditions.
