This is the application of a pulsating electrical current to acupuncture needles as a means of stimulating acupuncture points.
The needles are then attached to a device which generates continuous electric pulses using small clips.
Electro Acupuncture uses two needles at a time so the impulses can pass from one needle to the other. Several pairs of needles can be stimulated simultaneously.
Electro Acupuncture is considered to be especially useful for conditions in which there is an accumulation of qi, such as in chronic pain syndromes, post surgery, or in cases where the qi is difficult to stimulate.
