What is Electro Acupuncture?
Electro Acupuncture (EA) is where an electric current is passed through the acupuncture needles. In the clinic there are two types of devices used – the Cefar Acus4 and ETO ES130 EA devices.
What are the Electro Acupuncture devices?
The EA devices are small and portable devices with leads that attach to the needles in order to transfer the current from the machine to the needles. The wires are comparable to jump leads which are used to restart a car engine just on a much smaller scale and with a much more gentle current! In comparison to the point stimulator it provides constant input into the muscle for 10-20 minutes again depending on the treatment dose required and the nature of the condition being treated.
