Lynne Pretty has recently attended a series of lectures at the College of Integrated Medicine in the techniques and uses of electroacupuncture for the treatment of musculoskeletal problems.
Electroacupuncture is quite similar to traditional acupuncture, whereby needles are inserted into specific points along the body but with the flow of an electric charge through a wire attached to the needle. This action helps move stagnation of Qi and blood and thus normalises the function of dysfunctional muscles and joints within the body.
It is particularly effective for:
Neck pain, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritic finger joints, arthritic knuckles, lower back pain, sciatica, hip pain, osteoarthritis of the hip, knee pain, plantar fascitis and breaking down scar tissue.
