ElectroAcupuncture Medicine

Did you know that your body heals faster and more efficiently in the presence of electrons?

Did you know that the Ph of damaged tissue goes down, becoming acidic and positively charged?

The damaged tissue will then attract electrons to balance out the Ph and heal.

Did you know that the earth is negatively charged, and therefore practices such as “grounding” are so healthy?


Here are some of the effects that grounding has on the body and introducing electrons:

  • Diffuses inflammation

  • Reduces or eliminates chronic pain

  • Improves sleep

  • Increases energy

  • Lowers stress

  • Thins blood

  • Speeds healing

  • Accelerates recovery from activity

Finally, did you know that your clinician can introduce electrons into your body with the use of small Electrical stimulation devices. Well you do now!

Even better, we can target areas as small as scars that may be causing problems or an injury to a specific part of the body. Additionally, we can introduce these same electrons more globally to affect the entire body. This gives us tremendous flexibility to deal with specific problems and at the same time deal with more systemic inflammatory or immune issues that may be present.

So, what is the difference between an ElectroAcupuncture point and a regular acupuncture point? Nothing, except that when ElectroAcupuncture is used, a low voltage charge is sent through the acupuncture needle to accomplish therapeutic outcomes. This changes how the body reacts and can change the function of the acupuncture point utilized. Let's go over a few examples below.


Large Intestine 4 (LI4):  This acupuncture point is a powerful point in and of itself. It can be used for headaches, neck pain, facial pain and paralysis and delayed labor among other functions. This point is used in conjunction with Liver 3 (LV3) in EAM to provide systemic pain relief. At low frequencies, this point will stimulate the body to produce beta-endorphins, endogenous opioids, that provide pain relief. The body also produces ACTH, a precursor to Cortisol, a powerful anti-inflammatory.


Liver 3 (LV3):  When used in electro acupuncture, this is the best point on the body for extinguishing brain activity related to pain. LI4 and LV3 are connected in EAM providing pain relief, reducing inflammation and minimizing pain related brain activity. Using these two points as a more “global” pain reliever, we then start to hone in on the area that is causing the pain.


Spinal Bracketing:  By placing needles along the spine above and below the area of the pain itself, we can directly influence the nerves that are leaving the spine and going to the tissue in the problem area. Using both high and low frequencies, we induce the body to produce both immediate and lasting pain relief while decreasing inflammation directly in the area where the patient is experiencing pain.

Using this approach, we get increasingly closer to the problem area so that we are providing both specific and global pain relief while reducing inflammation. The pain relief will be temporary at first but with continued treatment, the body will produce larger and more sustained quantities of endorphins. On top of this the electrons we are introducing in to the body will help damaged tissue heal and regenerate. Using EAM not only provides lasting pain relief but helps the body to heal itself so that the pain will go away for good!

Because of research across the globe we can now pinpoint the release of certain neurotransmitters and their precursors based on specific frequencies (pulse rate). The infographic below lays out a few of the most well researched and used frequencies along with the corresponding substance affected.
