Electroacupuncture (EAC) seems like a modern form of treatment however it has the longest history of any electrical therapy. The first time electrical devices were hooked up to inserted acupuncture needles was in 1825 by a practitioner, Sarlandiere, in France. Today EAC is commonly used in many Chinese hospitals. In my experience there, it is used often and for a variety of conditions.

EAC greatly enhances the acupuncture effect by maintaining stimulation of the acupuncture point during treatment and extending the period of acupuncture effectiveness. Electrical signals continually force signals along the vessel/meridian pathways.

Electroacupuncture is a gentle stimulation having the feeling of a morse code-like tapping and often there is muscle twitching that is induced.
