Electro-ACUPUNCTURE

What is Electro-Acupuncture?

 Electro-acupuncture is a therapeutical modality that consists in the discharge of a low intensity electrical current into acupuncture needles placed on specific points on the body. Stimulating the points with micro-current potentiates the effect of regular acupuncture and enhances its pain relieving properties.

The following are some of the benefits of electro-acupuncture:

  • Reduces acute and chronic pain
  • Helps with post-surgery recovery
  • Assists in limb rehabilitation following stroke
  • Speeds up wound and fracture healing
  • Reduces water retention in the lower limbs
  • Increases normal muscle and muscle endurance
