The Modern Variation of Acupuncture is Electro acupuncture. It is also known as Electrical Stimulation Therapy. Electricity is used here to enhance the benefits of the treatment. The most significant advantage is that it covers a larger area of the body than acupuncture. A small electrode is attached along with the needles where the electricity runs by passing a soft vibration during the treatment. Electro acupuncture is used to treat a wide variety of ailments.

After a thorough investigation, the Acupuncturist will analyse the symptoms post which, two needles are inserted in two different acupuncture points with the electrodes connected to a device that passes the electricity to the needles. Once attached, the device will be turned on keeping a low voltage and frequency. During the treatment, the Acupuncturist will adjust the voltage and frequency. This session lasts between 10 to 20 minutes.
Benefits of Electro acupuncture treatment
Electro acupuncture is the best treatment for chronic pain and stress. While and after Electro acupuncture session, the sympathetic nerve fibres of the patient get activated, releasing the endogenous opioids like endorphins which helps in the reduction of inflammation. Electro acupuncture also helps to block the pain by activating the bioactive chemicals and decreasing the pain sensitivity.
Also, during the treatment, your body releases mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) into your bloodstream, which creates different types of tissues. They also have a great healing power.
