E-Stim is the application of small scale electric pulsing to trigger points or other inflamed tendino-muscular areas for pain management. It is a gentle and comfortable sensation. Other healthcare practitioners such as physical therapists and chiropractors may use E-Stim in their treatments on top of the skin, however as acupuncturists we can apply E-Stim to an acupuncture needle, allowing the therapy to penetrate deep into the muscle layer for more powerful results. E-Stim helps flush out unwanted inflammation, promotes increased range of motion in an injured area, and stimulates blood flow to aide in faster recovery. It can also be used to help break up scar tissue after a surgical operation, so as to prevent permanent tension in that area.
