WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE/CHINESE MEDICINE?
Acupuncture is part of a comprehensive medical system, originating in China over 2000 years ago. In the last few decades, it has gained much popularity in the United States. Acupuncture utilizes fine needles which are inserted at specific points on the body. These needles regulate the body's natural energy, what is also referred to as Qi (pronounced "chee"). Health is seen as harmonious and balanced flow of Qi, when this flow is disrupted, illness occurs.

ELECTRO-ACUPUNCTURE
Electro-acupuncture has become widely used as an effective way to treat pain. By adding micro-current to the acupuncture points, the muscles and painful area relax and the Qi flows more smoothly. Just as with traditional acupuncture, needles are inserted in patient- specific points on the body to which a device is connected. The device genereates an electric pulse through small clips attached to the needles. Most patients feel a tingling sensation, some patients do not feel anything at all. Please feel free to discuss any specific concerns about electro-acupuncture with the acupuncturist.
