(Stimulates Healing, Too!)
Clients are saying that while traditional needle acupuncture definitely decreases pain, Microcurrent Electro-Acupuncture (MEA), a non-needle, non-invasive treatment decreases pain and helps speed healing amazingly fast (some say it’s like needle acupuncture on steroids – especially for acute pain).
So if you have been suffering with pain (especially acute but also chronic), this treatment is worth a try. With MEA, acupuncture points are stimulated more powerfully than with traditional needle acupuncture alone, and without the minor discomfort of needles. Treatments can be as little as 15 minutes long, and start as low as $39 (1st treatments suggested to be 30 min./$59). Full hour treatments ($89) can include any/all of the following: gentle electric current, colored light, gentle massage, and a few targeted traditional acupuncture needle insertions.
Evidently, gardening can be hazardous to your health! Four days after a marathon gardening session, I became aware that my left index finger was slate gray and swollen, with a black spot in the nail. The swelling and pain increased and then I began losing feeling in my finger. I started myself on an antibiotic, but I was seriously concerned (as was my husband) that I would lose my finger. Dr. Carla Garcia (D.O.M) shares an office with me and she suggested we try Microcurrent-Electro-Acupuncture (MEA) treatments (needless acupuncture). After the first treatment, the pain and swelling were noticeably improved. After 2 weeks (and about three treatments later), the swelling had dramatically improved and normal color was coming back into my finger. At that point, my finger opened up and the excess fluid drained out. I received two more treatments, and now my finger is essentially normal. The total timeline from onset to normal use of my finger was three weeks! Three weeks from a possible amputation to complete recovery! Amazing! I highly recommend MEA treatments for anyone with an injury who would like to reduce pain and speed their recovery! Edie Johnson, FNP-BC
Darren Starwynn, O.M.D., developer of the Acutron (a commonly used MEA device) said, “The relationship between the human body and electrical energy is so intertwined that all life processes, and virtually all health care interventions, deal with this relationship in some way. Interventions work because on some level they induce adjustments in the bio-electric field and flows of the body. Microcurrent electro-acupuncture uses gentle, often sub-sensational electrical currents applied through acupuncture points. Healing is an electrically orchestrated event.”
Pretty cool…don’t you think?
A note from Karen Larré: This treatment provided amazing results and accelerated healing for my leg/hip recovery. Pain relief and range of motion was increased and immediate each time I got off the table. I highly recommend this treatment!
So if you have tried virtually everything else without relief, try Microcurrent Electro-Acupuncture!
