Electrical stimulation is used in addition to acupuncture (electro-acupuncture). It’s a medical device with tiny clips that are attached to individual acupuncture needles. Sound intimidating? It’s actually really gentle and is used to help our bodies regulate our nervous system.
Essentially, electro-acupuncture is used to regulate nerve output, hormones, and pain receptors. It’s great for pain, numbness/ tingling that occurs for various reasons, and to stimulate our body’s natural healing processes.
