Electroacupuncture is a derivative of traditional acupuncture, with a modern twist. Just like traditional acupuncture, electroacupuncture involves needles penetrating the skin. In addition to that, however, electroacupuncture involves a small electric current passing through pairs of acupuncture needles. Some say this procedure may be more effective in relief depending on the condition.
Electroacupuncture can be done either by using only 2 needles at the same time or, in some cases, multiple pairs of needles that are simultaneously stimulated, in conjuction with each other or completely separate. There are even devices which provide the same type of procedure using 2 handheld electrode devices; there is no penetration of the skin with needles.
