Acupuncture for pain relief, Acupuncture for fertility, and Acupuncture to stop smoking are just   some of the more  popular  requests received  by  our therapists.

We understand that many people are housebound and find it difficult to travel to receive the treatment they need. Others may need a mobile acupuncturist to avoid the stress and anxiety of making the journey. Home therapy visits are also convenient for people who cannot visit a clinic during the daytime or may live in a  rural areas where transport is a problem. Whatever the reason our aim is to help.

Acupuncture is  the  primary therapy but we often  use Moxibustion,  Cupping and Gua  Sha for pain relief especially for   back pain,  Sciatica, and frozen shoulders.  For addictions Auricular – Ear Acupuncture is often used, for example  to help stop smoking and weight loss. Fertility treatments using acupuncture can often include moxibustion ( Moxa) which is a warming therapy.

Electro Acupuncture and Electo-Stimulation

Electo-Acupuncture and Electro Stimulation is becoming popular especially with Physiotherapists and Doctors  for pain control especially for sports injuries.  Many Traditional Acupuncturists are also offering Electo Acupuncture in their practices. So just what is Electo-Acupuncture /Stimulation and why use it?,  also how does it differ from  Traditional Acupuncture ?

Electo-Acupuncture
Acupuncture needles are inserted into the skin and a small electrical signal is used to stimulate the acupuncture points. The needles are connected to a specialised device via some small wires. The stimulation signal is controlled by the Acupuncturist by  various dials on the device.  Depending on the device used numerous Acupuncture points can be stimulated simultaneously.


Electo-Stimulation
There are  NO needles inserted.  Acupuncture Points are stimulated by either a small probe  held by the Acupuncturist or by using  electrodes taped to the surface of the skin. This is very similar to the operation of a TENS device  (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation).  
Electro – Acupuncture is not suitable for everyone, for example patients with pacemakers, heart conditions, and any history of strokes and seizures are examples of exclusions.  The practitioner will as always discuss your specific needs and take a full medical history as part of the diagnosis process and assess your suitability.

Auricular Electro- Acupuncture/Stimulation
Perhaps one of the most common forms of stimulation used by Acupuncturists is to stimulate Acupuncture points located on the Ear. In recent years there has been an increase in the number of research studies undertaken into this branch of Acupuncture. Western Research into the use of Acupuncture points located in the Ear began in France in the 1950’s and continues today especially in the United States. There is a complete branch of Acupuncture dedicated to Ear Acupuncture.

Some of our Mobile practitioners also offer Electro Acupuncture / or Stimulation alongside Traditional body Acupuncture, please contact us for more details.
