A modern variation of traditional acupuncture. Once needles are inserted into acupuncture points, electrodes are attached to the needles in order to run small amount of electricity through them.
Short and long term effects of electro-acupuncture are similar to conventional acupuncture.
In addition, electro-acupuncture can also increase the local ATP production in the tissues that are being stimulated. ATP is the energy molecule needed to expedite wound healing and tissue regeneration.
