Electro-acupuncture. Best for pain management and weight loss.

Electro-acupuncture is an enhanced version of acupuncture.  As with traditional acupuncture, needles are inserted on selected acupuncture points along the specific meridians. The needles are then attached to a device that generates continuous electric pulses using small clips. The device is used to adjust the frequency and intensity of the impulse being delivered in order to strengthen the flow of qi. The electricity will not go through your body and you will not feel any pain but some rhythmic twitching.  This technique can enhance the effectiveness of any forms of joint pain, in particular neck and pack pain.
