This is the using of very small electrical impulses through the Acupuncture
needles. This method is generally used for analgesia (pain relief or prevention).
The amount of power used is only a few micro amperes, but the frequency of the
current can vary from 5 to 2,000 Hz. The higher frequencies are generally used
for surgery (usually abdominal), and the lower frequencies for general pain
relief. The first reported successful use of Electro-Acupuncture was in 1958
in China for a tonsillectomy. Today, it is a common method of surgical analgesia
used in China.
