What is Electro-Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a prehistoric technique by the Chinese for applying special needles to a few exact healing points on the body to facilitate relief from soreness and even some ailments. Even though it is painless, many people are scared of the idea of someone putting a bunch of needles in their body. It is the time when electro acupuncture plays its role as another version of this olden acupuncture.
Electro acupuncture is relatively a modified variant of traditional acupuncture, which uses electrical current applied to the needles, which are then inserted in the acupoints of the body.
The first electro-acupuncture apparatus commenced by an old Chinese acupuncture technique and a machine connected with the needles to carry electric pulses on straight points that needed healing. During the procedure, a trained acupuncturist is necessary for proper administration.
