Electro-acupuncture

Electro-acupuncture or electro-stimulation is a relatively new advancement in TCM. It involves the connection of the acupuncture needles to a battery-powered machine. The points are then supplied with a small electrical current. The machines replicate the manipulation of the needles normally delivered by the practitioner. This enables multiple groups of needles to receive stimulation continuously for a prolonged time, greatly promoting the effects of the treatment.
