F.A.Q. About Electro-acupuncture
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is well known in eastern medicine for over 5000 years. Originally invented in ancient India, by the well known Ayurveda health philosophy and later spread throughout China and some other far east countries. The basis of this ancient system is the belief that the human body consists not only physical elements but also has an invisible energy-flow meridians system, through which a life energy – Chi or Prana is flowing and maintaining our body alive and healthy. The modern science often refers to it as bio-energy-field.
What are meridians?
The individual energy channels of the body were traditionally described in the form of “meridians”, although this is really only a very poor translation of that term. But it is no longer possible to change it, since that is the term used and understood internationally.
How many meridians there are in the human body?
There are 12 major meridians or channels and more than a 480 major acupuncture points on the skin of our body. By activating certain combinations of those point a specific meridians/channels are activated and the life-energy-flow is restored. Than the self-healing mechanism of our energy body starts to fight the illness.
How different is the Electro-acupuncture method?
The Electro-acupuncture method was also developed in China in more recent years and became widely available to the western practitioners. The benefits of this new method are that it’s non-invasive, no puncturing of the skin is necessary and there is no risk of infections. The only sensation the patient can feel is a slight electrical impulses applied to the surface of the skin, which is totally safe from infections and painless. In addition the accuracy of locating the exact acupuncture points is tremendously improved and automated, due to the modernization of the latest electro-acupuncture systems. Now the practitioners can combine their knowledge of acupuncture with the accuracy and safety of the built-in electric censors to locate the precise acu-points on each individual patient.
