Electro acupuncture is a widely practiced form of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and it is very similar to acupuncture. In electroacupuncture, two needles are used at the acupoints whereas acupuncture uses one needle at each treatment point.
In electroacupuncture a mild electric current passes between the needles during treatment. This current generally applies more stimulation to acupoints. As opposed to the traditional Acupuncture, it’s highly effective because it can stimulate a larger area than the needle itself. It has been especially used for musculo-skeleton conditions and has shown good results for pain relieving.
Electro-acupuncture is basically the application of a pulsating electrical current to acupuncture needles as a means of stimulating the acupoints. Electro acupuncture has been used widely for neurological conditions, pain, paralysis.
According to some acupuncturists, this practice augments the use of regular acupuncture, can restore health and well-being, and is particularly good for treating pain.
