With acupuncture points we can use different techniques for its stimulation, adapting to different patients.
"By considering the different sensitivities that patients may have to needles we offer alternatives to treat the ailment."
Background & History
The equipment we use for this technique is called a "estim", essentially it treats the same acupuncture points in order to establish the desired effects.
Electrical stimulation is been used by Chinese doctors succesfully in combination with regular acupuncture for many years.
The discharge is hardly perceptible and there are two ways of doing this, either by inserted the needle and inducing the electric charge onto the needle or by using the "estim" device we exclude the needle altogether and apply the electrical charge directly to the acupuncture point.
The second method is used primarily on patients who are hypersensitive to the feeling of being stung by the needle, in this way we remove the fear the patient may have of them while being able to effectively stimulate the point.
The equipment we used is calibrated so that the patient won't feel any discomfort on the skin.
What it can do for your pet...
Coursing electric current into the body between needles inserted into acupuncture points. Estim relaxes spasming muscles and can aid the body in reestablishing nervous impulses when nerve dam- age has occurred (nerve root or spinal cord damage from a ruptured intervertebral disc, etc).
Is electrical therapy for your animal?
Electrical therapy with TCVM in general can benefit all life stages (juvenile, adult, and senior) and a vast variety of conditions. Determining and resolving the underlying reasons for illnesses is one of the aspects of TCVM’s approach that can reduce the cumulative effect of chronic ailments.
Since most pets’ health problems are diagnosed once illness has become very advanced, it’s vital to strive to prevent dis- ease from occurring in the first place.
The preventive approach of TCVM takes into account the constitutional type of each patient, allowing the practitioner to treat conditions even before they manifest themselves.
