The benefits of acupuncture therapy can be experienced alone or in conjunction with other Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies to enhance its effects. Below are three types of added acupuncture styles and therapeutic tools that can be used in treatments to help support the overall healing process.
Electro-acupuncture involves the use of controlled low-frequency electrical current applied to acupuncture needles to stimulate and encourage activation of acupuncture points. This painless process enhances the therapeutic effects of acupuncture by increasing blood flow, and modulating the nervous system. This technique is usually applied on the body depending on the health issue, making it particularly useful for pain management, muscle relaxation, and promoting circulation.

Auricular Acupuncture (Ear Acupuncture)
In Chinese Medicine, the ear is a microsystem of the body with specific points corresponding to different organs and systems.
Auricular acupuncture uses painless stimulation points on the ear that connect to organs or body parts that activate their healing. This style of acupuncture is known to help wide a wide range of issues, including addiction management, stress reduction, insomnia and emotional well-being.
Stimulating appropriate scalp points can prompt the brain to send signals to the affected parts of the body. It targets specific points on the scalp to treat neurological & musculoskeletal conditions, such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, pain & numbness. By combining scalp acupuncture with traditional body acupuncture, we can create a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to the patient’s needs.
