Microcurrent Therapy is another of the newer physical therapy devices to help heal the body, namely soft tissues. It is also an effective way to relieve pain within the body. The therapy utilizes very small amounts of current to produce signals that replicate those occurring in the body naturally. This current is very small and is almost unnoticeable to the patient.
Microcurrent and electrical stimulation, and even lasers, are a great way for balancing acupuncture meridian energy without using needles. Even short therapy sessions are excellent at facilitating healing and / or pain relief by balancing acupuncture meridians.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine used to alleviate pain and promote overall health. Licensed Acupuncturists uses needles placed along invisible meridians that run throughout the body. Today, some of us chiropractors use lasers, ultrasound, magnets, electric pulses or "acupressure" instead of needles. Each meridian point has a specific meaning and can unblock and repair meridians and channels with vital energy or chi. Through the balancing of the meridians, doctors and acupuncturists may be able to restore balance and ergo your health.
