Natural Pain Relief
through acupuncture


Electro-acupuncture (EA) is a neuromodulation therapy that causes a change in nerve activity and tissues, by delivering electrical impulses to them. It can affect every area of the body and treat nearly any disease or symptom from headaches, chronic pain, digestive disorders, insomnia and much more.

With such a broad therapeutic scope, Electro-acupuncture is becoming more mainstream. Most people think of acupuncture for neck and back pain relief. However, there are a plethora of applications, such as deep cranial electro-acupuncture stimulation (DCEAS) for Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s and Multiple Sclerosis. Vagul nerve stimulation can be performed with electro-acupuncture for stress, anxiety, digestive disorders and chronic systemic patients.

Electro-acupuncture can even stimulate a response where there was previously none, as is the case with severely motor-impaired individuals following a stroke.
