Electro-acupuncture

Electro-acupuncture aims to stimulate the body's healing and pain relieving processes by sending electrical impulses through the muscles and nerves. This is very effective for pain relief because it promotes the release of endogenous neurotransmitters such as beta-endorphin, a natural analgesic.  The gentle current relaxes and releases areas of pain.  It is very helpful for unwinding tension in myofascial trigger points and chronically tight muscles. I frequently use electro-acupuncture and have had great results for low back pain, sciatica, joint pain, plantar fasciitis and neck pain.
