It’s quite similar to traditional acupuncture
in that the same points are stimulated during treatment. As with traditional
acupuncture, needles are inserted on specific points along the body. The
needles are then attached to a device that generates continuous electric pulses
using small clips. These devices are used to adjust the frequency and intensity
of the impulse being delivered, depending on the condition being treated.
Electro acupuncture uses two needles at time so that the impulses can pass from
one needle to the other. Several pairs of needles can be stimulated simultaneously,
usually for no more than 30 minutes at a time.
