Afraid of needles? No worries, you can still experience all the healing benefits of acupuncture.  Micro-current is so effective that at Traditional Acupuncture we almost always combine it with a classic acupuncture treatment or use it as a stand alone treatment even for seasoned acupuncture patients.  

Similar to a TENS unit, micro-current uses small electrical impulses to stimulate acupucture points to  balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.  Unlike a TENS unit, however, the electrical impulse used is extremely small, less than 1 milliamp, so you don't feel the electrical current, but instead, experience a deep sense of relaxation.

Micro-current works on a cellular level and signals the release of ATP (adenosine triphosphate).  ATP can be thought of as the fuel behind cellular metabolism.  It allows for increased blood flow to reduce pain and heal damaged tissue, helps release waste material (detoxifies), and aids in the communication between cells in the nervous system.
