Electroacupuncture is a form of acupuncture that involves the use of electrical stimulation along with the traditional insertion of needles into specific points on the body. During electroacupuncture, a small electrical current is passed through the needles, which can help to enhance the effects of the treatment (PATIENT HAS FULL CONTROL OF THE INTENSITY OF THE ELECTRICAL CURRENT FOR THE DURATION OF THE TREATMENT). This can be particularly useful in cases where acupuncture alone may not be enough to relieve symptoms or when a stronger, more targeted stimulation is needed. Electroacupuncture has been used to treat a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, depression, and infertility, among others.
