Electroacupuncture is the use of electric impulse stimulation through the acupuncture needles in affected areas and is utilized in pain related conditions, analgesia, labor induction, regeneration of nerve fibers and substance abuse. This type of treatment enhances the therapeutic effects of acupuncture. It is a pain-free procedure with a small amount of vibration in the affected area. There are two types of current, milliamp and microcurrent. Research has shown that milliamp is more effective for the release of endorphins to counteract pain, and microcurrent is more beneficial for tissue repair by causing cells to synthesize ATP at a higher rate.
