Electro-acupuncture employs a device to transmit fine electrical impulses to the acupuncture needles. These electrical impulses cause endorphins to be distributed at different levels of the central nervous system.
The result is pain relief, an immune system boost (by reducing the physiological stress) and the relaxation of the cardiovascular system. In addition, electro-acupuncture promotes self-healing. The fine electrical impulses are hardly noticeable and are neither painful nor unpleasant.
This type of acupuncture is used to treat chronic and so-called resistant pain, as well as acute pain mainly in the musculoskeletal system.
Electro-acupuncture treatment achieves good results for joint-, back- and sciatic pain. Nerve stimulation electro-acupuncture is equally successful for treating sensory disturbances and discomfort.
