Acupuncture with Electrical Stimulation
Acupuncture with electrical stimulation (E-stim) is very similar to traditional acupuncture, as explained above. Using the exact same system of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), very thin sterile needles are inserted into specific points along the channels. A device is then attached to the needles, which gently delivers electrical pulses between two points. This helps restore the healthy flow of Qi through your body, removing blockages and clearing out stagnant areas.
Cupping is an ancient technique, used in many cultures, in which a special cup is applied to the skin and held in place by suction. The suction draws superficial tissue into the cup, which may either be left in place or moved along the body. Cupping brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve circulation. Traditional cupping, sometimes referred to as "fire cupping," uses heat to create a vacuum-like suction inside of glass cups. In modern times, cups that use a small pump to create suction have also been introduced.
