At Healthology Experts our Chiropractors Certified to perform Acupuncture use both Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Electroacupuncture. Acupuncture is a key component of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) that involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow, known as qi (pronounced “chee”), along meridian pathways. The goal of acupuncture is to restore balance and harmony within the body’s energy system, promoting health and well-being. 

Acupuncture with electrical stimulation, also known as electroacupuncture, combines traditional acupuncture techniques with the application of electrical current to the acupuncture needles. This method enhances the effects of acupuncture by providing additional stimulation to the acupuncture points, muscles, and nerves. 


Pain Relief: Acupuncture can effectively reduce pain by stimulating the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, and modulating pain signals in the nervous system. Electrical stimulation can further enhance pain relief by targeting deeper tissues and increasing nerve activity. 

Inflammation Reduction: Acupuncture has anti-inflammatory effects, helping to decrease inflammation and swelling associated with acute and chronic conditions. Electrical stimulation can amplify these effects by promoting tissue healing and reducing inflammatory mediators. 

Stress Reduction: Acupuncture promotes relaxation and reduces stress by stimulating the release of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine. Electrical stimulation can enhance these effects by calming the nervous system and promoting a sense of well-being. 

Improved Circulation: Acupuncture can enhance blood flow and lymphatic drainage, facilitating the delivery of oxygen, nutrients, and immune cells to injured tissues and promoting faster healing. Electrical stimulation can further optimize circulation by increasing muscle contractions and vasodilation. 

Muscle Relaxation: Acupuncture helps relax tight muscles, reduce muscle spasms, and improve range of motion by promoting muscle tissue relaxation and reducing tension. Electrical stimulation can enhance these effects by stimulating motor nerves and promoting muscle contractions.
