Electro acupuncture

When your acupuncture needles are in place a crocodile clip is attached to the handle. (The frequency of treatment is chosen depending on the desired effect). The current in the electro-acu device is slowly increased until you feel a slight sensation. The levels will be set and left for five to ten minutes. At this point the device will be removed or the current increased, as your sensitivity will have diminished and you will no longer feel the stimulation.

Alternatively to the electro acupuncture treatment on the acupuncture needles, a hand held device might be used where the acu-point or muscle body, origin or insertion is stimulated directly. For this the same process as above is used in regards to the frequency and current levels.
