Electro Acupuncture is the term used to refer to the application of a pulsating current to acupuncture needles. Electro-acupuncture uses two needles a time so that the impulses can pass from one needle to the other.

The vibration of the electrical current stimulates blood flow and can help to warm the muscles and ease the pain.
How does electro acupuncture work?
Electro Acupuncture aims to stimulate the body’s healing processes by sending electrical impulses through the channels, muscles, and nerves. Electrical stimulation is most commonly associated with pain management as it promotes the release of endogenous neurotransmitters such as beta-endorphin, a natural analgesic. This is a similar theory to the use of TENS machines to aid pain relief.
