A non-invasive and painless technique for treating pain by using low-level electrical currents.
What is Electroacupuncture?
Electroacupuncture is a modern variation of acupuncture, using electricity to enhance the benefits of this traditional therapeutic treatment. A small amount of electricity runs through the needle, emitting a subtle vibration or soft hum during treatment. Using electricity activates the body’s acupuncture points much faster than traditional acupuncture, thus providing more immediate pain relief and detoxification.
Electroacupuncture activates your sympathetic nerve fibers. By activating these fibers, your body releases endogenous opioids such as endorphins, which help to reduce pain and inflammation. The activated nerve fibers also help to reduce feelings of persistent pain, making it a viable treatment for chronic pain and stress.
Electroacupuncture is great for treating chronic conditions such as peripheral neuropathy, arthritis, anxiety, and more.
Initial Consultation Required

What can I expect from Electroacupuncture?
QUICK & PAINLESS
Electroacupuncture is quick and painless, you’re in and out of the office in 30-45 minutes.
The number of procedures you will need will vary based on your specific condition, the amount of time you’ve had it, etc.
The Electroacupuncture process is repeated 2-5 times a week until maximum improvement is seen. Then a maintenance regimen is often prescribed to prevent recurrence. Maintenance may be as little as 1-2 times per month.
ABSENCE OF SYMPTOMS
Electroacupuncture can and often results in a complete absence of symptoms, even in severe pain conditions that have been present for years.
