This Oriental medicine technique was developed in China in the 1930’s, and though it is a fairly

recent development in the ancient method of acupuncture, the idea behind it corresponds

directly with long-held beliefs. Acupuncture operates on the idea that a person’s qi, or life force,

runs through body along certain meridians, and that specific points on the body correspond with

these meridians. When these points are ‘activated’ or stimulated by touch, specific complaints of

chronic pain or illnesses can be alleviated. Using a gentle electrical current in conjunction 

with, or instead of, acupuncture needles, is an alternative way to stimulate the point and enhance

the qi.

The Advantages of Electro-Acupuncture

The procedure for electro-acupuncture usually involves the needles inserted as in a traditional

treatment, but a small electrode is attached to them. This electrode provides a gentle vibration that

stimulates the qi running through these points. It is often very soothing to the patient, providing a

soft humming and, essentially, a more fluid treatment. The electrode substitutes the practitioners’

hand maneuvering of the needle to activate the acupuncture point. This avoids any tiring of the

practitioner,and ensures that the patient receives the proper amount of stimulation needed. Also,

electro-acupuncture treatments are often shorter than regular acupuncture treatments due to

the continued,and often stronger, stimulus. A unique advantage of electro-acupuncture is its ability

to simulate an area larger than the needle itself. This advantage reduces the need for a precise

insertion of needles.Using the same points as traditional acupuncture, electro-acupuncture is a

convenient stimulation technique that can be used for a variety of treatments. In cases of stubborn

neurological disorders and chronic pain, electro-acupuncture may be the best option for point

stimulation and effective treatments.

The Benefits of Electro-Acupuncture

While electro-acupuncture may be used as a component of almost all acupuncture treatments,

it is has garnered especially good results regarding the treatment of neurological diseases, chronic

pain,spasms, and paralysis. Also, holistic sports medicine commonly uses electro-acupuncture for

injuries. when combined with acupressure (the stimulation of acupuncture points with the use of the

practitioner’s hands and gentle massage, instead of needles), electro-acupuncture has been proven to

promote the flow of qi and blood, relieve pain, and warm the muscles, removing blood stasis (a

blockage, or poor circulation).

Electro-acupuncture is contraindicated for patients who are pregnant, experience seizures or have a

history of heart disease, strokes, or epilepsy. Patients with pacemakers should not receive electro-

acupuncture. The procedure is not to be performed on a patient’s throat or head, nor should it

be done directly over the heart. Patients usually do not feel the electric current and the side

effects, at most, can be minor bruising or bleeding.
