Electro-Acupuncture (Estim) is a complementary modality used in conjunction with acupuncture to enhance therapeutic effectiveness. The Estim cords are attached to the acupuncture needles and a small electric current is run through the needles deep into the body. It has been proven to accelerate tissue healing, reduce inflammation, edema and swelling, decrease pain, treat depression, aid in weight loss and many other conditions that acupuncture is effective at treating.
