Electro Acupuncture Medicine
Electro Acupuncture is a modern day evolution of ancient medicine. As one of the most well researched forms of acupuncture treatments for chronic pain, electro acupuncture provides long lasting relief by inhibiting pro-inflammatory chemicals.
Mild electrical stimulation is scientifically proven to reduce inflammation, eliminate chronic pain, enhance endorphin release, and regulate neurotransmitters.
Electrons are required for life. Think about this: your heart beat is determined by an electrical signal – your heart literally has an electrical system to coordinate the four heart chambers that pump your blood. Your brain generates electricity between neurons. Every cell in your body communicates using electro-chemical signaling. Part of how the communication process works is via the acupuncture meridians.
Acupuncture meridians are the spaces located between planes of connective tissue called ‘fascia’. Fascia is abundant in the body. It is the tissue that wraps every muscle and bone in your body and is arranged mostly vertically in small bundles. Fascia is the most electrically conductive tissue in the body!
Acupuncture meridians are arranged from your head to toes and your chest to your hands. They flow in one direction and affect everything along their pathway, including your organs, glands, digestion, and even your brain.
All of this is connected to the nervous system. Your entire body communicates along electrical pathways to keep you functioning. When there is illness or injury, certain pathways become congested and lose some of their electrical charge. That’s where electroacupuncture comes in.
Acupuncture points are measurable with electrical devices. They can indicate where charge is needed. During a treatment, electrons are passed through the needle at a pulsed frequency to charge the meridian so it functions better. The frequency we use is specific to what we are treating – low frequency for certain types of pain, higher frequencies for conditions such as depression. Your body responds to these frequencies by releasing chemicals that lower inflammation and reduce pain as well as substances that regulate neurotransmitters.
- Chronic Pain
- Ocular Migraine
- Spinal Stenosis
- Sciatic Pain
- TMJ Pain
- Carpal Tunnel
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Endometriosis Pain
Once your needles have been placed, small lead wires are connected to the needles and a very light stimulation is applied. Most people do not feel it and report a pleasant, relaxed state of being as endorphins are released.
Ask about our needle free electro medicine options. With our gentle, no needle ATP Resonance Biotherapy, children and people with a fear of needles can be treated too! Our needle free option is also effective in concussion treatment and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
At your initial consultation, you will receive a customized treatment plan. Treatment frequency and the duration of your recommended treatment plan will vary depending upon your unique circumstances. The longer you’ve had the pain or dysfunction, the more treatments you will need. Treatment with electro acupuncture is cumulative. As we charge the deficient channels they begin to fill with electrons resulting in improved function. Rest assured, your case will be reviewed and customized to meet your specific health goals.
