Electroacupuncture is a modern form of acupuncture which ‘super charges’ your treatment. It has been shown to be more effective than manual acupuncture for some conditions. Very carefully chosen pairs of needles are connected to a device that delivers precisely controlled pulses of low voltage electricity. The electrode gives the effect of the acupuncturist activating the acupuncture point with their hands. Electroacupuncture is intended to increase the potential healing effects of standard acupuncture.

Electroacupuncture help to block pain by activating bioactive chemicals in the body. This process may decrease your sensitivity to the pain you are feeling. It has also been shown to reduce inflammation. Electroacupuncture activates the sympathetic nerve fibres. By activating these fibres, the body releases endogenous opioids such as endorphins, which help to reduce inflammation. The activated nerve fibres may also help to reduce feelings of persistent pain. This makes it a good treatment for chronic pain and stress. It is a new treatment, but the evidence to support its effectiveness is growing.

Electroacupuncture can help to reduce pain and inflammation, helps repair nerve damage, relaxes tense muscles, reduces stress, and restores health and well-being.
