What is electro-acupuncture?
Electro-acupuncture is very similar to traditional acupuncture with the addition of a gentle current running through the needles a bit like that of a TENS machine. The sensation of electro-acupuncture is similar to the sensations of traditional acupuncture however a pulsing sensation will remain constant throughout your treatment. Most people find that once they adjust to the sensation it is quite a comforting sensation.
