What is Electro Acupuncture and How Can it Help You?

Most people of course have heard of acupuncture and may have had it done before. Acupuncture of course is the ancient Chinese technique of applying special needles to certain restoring points on the body to help relieve pain and even some ailments. These restoring points area also considered the flow of the body. Even though it is painless there are a lot of people who just can't stand the idea of someone putting a bunch of needles in their body and that is where electro acupuncture comes into play as an alternative to the ancient acupuncture.

This type of acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine also known as acupoint and it implements the use of electrical pads instead of needles. These pads are placed in the same areas in which the acupuncture needles would be placed. Then an electric current will run through the pads and will provide those points of the body with the same kind of stimulation that the needles would except that the stimulation is electricity that swirls around onto the area that the pads are located.

The electrical impulses will deliver anywhere from forty to eighty volts of electricity during each session. This is basically all the average patient requires from each of the sessions that they might have. The good thing about this technique is that the electric current does not run through the entire body but only to the area where the pads are located.

Regular acupuncture of course has been used for thousands of years, electro acupuncture is relatively new. It was not discovered until around 1934 and at the time was simply an extension of the manipulation done by hand by the acupuncturist and would let them work on more than one patient at a time.

The benefits of this type of technique is for both the patient and the practitioner. It's good for the practitioner because it is like a substitute for their own hands and of course the needles so the patient is still being stimulated for the period time needed without the practitioner getting tired during the session. This also means for the patient that the time of the session is actually a lot shorter than the traditional acupuncture session and there is no risk of damage to the tissues or the muscles. This type of treatment is especially good for those who are suffering from neurological problems. This is also easy to control than acupuncture with needles.

This type of treatment is best for neurological problems like someone with chronic pain or for paralysis or those who suffer from muscle spasms. The treatments are short lasting just 10 to 20 minutes normally and are only given once or twice a week.

Note: This type of treatment should not be given to anyone that has a history of heart problems even if it isn't anywhere near the heart.
