Acupuncture :

For nearly 3000 years the Chinese have utilized the science and art of acupuncture. Originally pointed stones were utilized to stimulate points on the body providing relief from a wide spectrum of ailments. As time passed, meridians or channels of Qi were mapped out. Along these specific pathways points were found that proved to function in specific ways time and time again. From this lineage of knowledge handed down from one generation to the next for the last 3000 years we have what is known in modern times as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Historically there are 365 points along the 14 primary channels.

Electro Acupuncture :

Electro-acupuncture is the application of a pulsating electrical current to acupuncture needles. Stimulating the acupuncture points this way was developed in China around 1934. The acupuncture needles are inserted normally. Once the Qi reaction is attained by hand manipulation an electrode attach to the needle provides continued point stimulation. The benefits of using electrical stimulation are many. The correct amount of stimulation for the patient’s condition is easily obtained with electro-acupuncture. A reduction in total treatment time can be achieved by providing a continued stimulus. It can produce a stronger stimulation, if desired, without causing tissue damage associated with twirling and lifting and thrusting the needle. According to the Chinese literature, especially good results are expected from electro-acupuncture treatment of neurological diseases, including chronic pain, spasm, and paralysis. In patients with serious cardiac diseases, however, the method should be used with caution. It is generally recommended to avoid placing electrodes near the heart, as the heart can respond adversely to electrical impulses.
