During your Electro-Acupuncture appointment we stimulate needles on specific acupuncture points with an electrical impulse. This can be very helpful during trigger point and motor point sessions to reset muscles that are not firing properly. We can also use electro-acupuncture to treat neurological conditions such as Bell’s Palsy. We often add electro-acupuncture during Extended or Trigger point sessions if we think it is appropriate.
Electro-acupuncture is not appropriate for all patients, if you have a heart condition or have a pace-maker this treatment is counter-indicated for you.
If you have questions about whether electro-acupuncture is appropriate for your condition please don't hesitate to ask your acupuncturist during your next session.
