Acupuncture with Electrical Stimulation
This is a method of acupuncture in which an electrical current is applied to needles inserted in the body in order to produce a combined needle and electrical stimulus. Electroacupuncture was first reported after the Communist Party assumed power in China, and over recent years has come to be widely used. Electro acupuncture can be used in regular body acupuncture, ear acupuncture, head acupuncture, facial acupuncture, and anesthesia.
