Electro-acupuncture.png After regular needles are inserted on specific points of the body, they are attached to the clips where electric pulses are created through a device in order to amplify their effect. This technique, most commonly used in the treatment of soft tissue for both traumatic and chronic conditions, is generally used to promote stronger and faster flow of qi and blood.  

The sensation is of a tiny pulsation at the needling site, and the acupuncturist works closely with you to establish your comfort level for each lead.  

Electro acupuncture sometimes causes electric shock, pain and uncomfortable feeling, or even aggravated symptoms due to strong stimulation. Patients who have pacemakers or history of heart diseases shall NEVER use electro acupuncture ; they MUST inform the practitioner before getting treatment.
