This modern electro-acupuncture has become the trend in the Chinese medicine practitioners to gain efficient results to treat maximum people in a shorter period. Electro machines provide constant stimulation which allows the practitioners to proceed to the next level instead of stimulating the needles by hands.

How is Electro-acupuncture different from TENS? 

Electro-acupuncture is considered as the additional acupuncture therapy that makes use of the electrical current to run the electro machine via connecting the cables and remaining attached to the head of acupuncture needle that issued to assist stimulation of muscle/fascia via electrotherapeutic methods. Electro-acupuncture is known to have a greater effect in comparison to TENS machines for several reasons. TENS is placed on the surface of the skin and electrified but in electro-acupuncture, it pierces the skin and goes deeper into the tissue. The second reason is that different types of electrical current run via acupuncture needle which is useful to repair connective tissue tears, muscle strains, or ligament/tendon damages. Thirdly, milli-current can be used in electro-acupuncture and TENS machines. This technique creates a vast effect on the cell that broadens the effect on the muscles and fascia but again electro acupuncture has the potential to get deeper into the tissue of the affected area. The milli-current is best used in the TMC Clinic Singapore to strengthen the muscle and improve the local circulation as well as relieve pains. Lastly, electro-acupuncture is acknowledged as the best combination for the healing effects of acupuncture with electrotherapeutics which helps in strengthening the clinical result of either option. 

Electro-Acupuncture and gene expression:

Epigenetics is the study of the biological mechanism that has the potential to turn the genes on and off. For example, if someone is born with a specific gene that does not mean to be associated with the trait of the gene. Gene can never be expressed based on the environment and actions of the body. Both acupuncture and electro-acupuncture are considered to display the effect of the gene expression which means positive change in the gene expression via electro puncture that is amongst best acupuncture in Singapore. 

Endogenous stem cell release via electro-acupuncture:

Stem cells are the raw undifferentiated biological cells that can transform to daughter cell which eventually turns into new cells that self-renewal or differentiate to become specialized like the brain cells, heart cells, blood cell, etc. none of the other ability to generate new cell types can make the stem cell unique and important for the repair of the body. A study has been conducted to show that electro-acupuncture can easily stimulate and even mobilize the MSC (Mesenchymal Stem Cells) into the systemic circulation. Whereas in the same study it was demonstrated that acupuncture point specifically causes a difference in the effect as the result. Acupuncture points on the forelimb are known to mobilize the macrophages (these are the cell formed in the response to infection or accumulation of the dead cells) into the circulation. 

Antioxidant effect:

Antioxidants are molecules that have the potential to inhibit the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation causes a chemical reaction for the production of free radicals that result in a chain reaction that can cause damaged cells. But, the antioxidant molecule is known to stop the chain reaction from an occurrence. The study conducted on the antioxidant effect of electro-acupuncture in mouse Parkinson’s disease reveals that electro-acupuncture has an antioxidant effect that helps in protecting the neurons in the brain. Research even concluded that electro-acupuncture is known to be the best treatment for Parkinson’s disease.
