Electro-Acupuncture has been especially effective for treating neurological diseases, paralysis, chronic pain and spasms. It combines especially well with acupressure to promote blood flow, muscle warmth, pain relief and removal of blood stasis. Electro-acupuncture is when the acupuncture needles are inserted and then attached to a small device that puts out a tiny electrical current. This current runs through the needles and increases the efficacy of the treatment. A light pulsing sensation is not painful or uncomfortable. It acts to increase the strength of the treatment.
