Electro – Acupuncture in Niagara Falls , ON
How it works
Similarly to acupuncture, acupoints of specific meridians are selected and stimulated by the insertion of very thin needles, then connected by small clips to a device that generates tiny electric pulses. These pulses will travel through the acupoints to the meridians. The device is used to adjust the frequency and intensity of the impulse being delivered, according to the needs of the condition being treated.
Electroacupuncture uses two needles at time, so that the impulses can pass from one needle to the other and is considered very useful for conditions in which there is an accumulation of qi, such as in chronic pain syndromes, or in cases where the qi is difficult to stimulate.
For what conditions can it be used
Electroacupuncture has been studied for a variety of conditions. It has been effectively used as a form of anesthesia; as a pain reliever for muscle spasms and a treatment for neurological disorders. Electroacupuncture is getting very popular for its effectiveness on the induction of labor for expecting mothers that passed their delivering date. There is also evidence that electrical stimulation of acupuncture points activates the endorphin system, which could lower blood pressure and reduce pain.
