E-stim or Electro-Acupuncture
Electro-acupuncture, also called e-stim, uses a small machine connected to the acupuncture needles that emits a painless electromagnetic pulse. It's similar to traditional acupuncture but has an electrical stimulation attached to certain needles.
The electromagnetic pulse feels like a slight buzzing or tapping and is not unpleasant, our patients still relax and even fall asleep during it. After 20-30 minutes of this, you will leave the office feeling incredibly relaxed.
We use Electro-Acupuncture in our Denver clinic to treat:
- Fertility, especially great for IVF preparation (proven with doppler ultrasound to increase blood flow to the uterus and ovaries!)
- Pain - electro-acupuncture is great for pain management, as it promotes the release of neurotransmitters such as beta-endorphin and adenosine, your body's natural analgesics (pain reducers).
- Vagal nerve stimulation.
We use electro-acupuncture very frequently in our Denver clinic and can help you decide if it's right for you.
