Electro-acupuncture is the application of pulsating electrical current through the needles as a means of stimulating the acupuncture points. It was developed in China around 1934, as an extension of hand manipulation of the needles.
· It acts as a stand in for prolonged hand manipulation. It can sometimes reduce the treatment time because of providing the continued stimulus. In some practices, electro-acupuncture allows the practitioner to attend to other patients.
· It is much easier to control the frequency and the amount of the stimulus than with hand manipulation of the needle.
· It can produce a stronger stimulation (if necessary) without causing the tissue damage that is sometimes associated with twirling and lifting and thrusting the needle.
· The type of diseases that benefit the most from electro-acupuncture are neurological, chronic pain, spasm, and paralysis.
