Electrical Stimulation with Acupuncture: Enhancing Your Healing

by Jamie Holland, LAc, ABT, ACN

Introduction to E-Stim Acupuncture

At Lakewood Community Acupuncture, we continuously strive to integrate traditional healing methods with modern medical techniques to enhance your wellness experience, including homeopathic injections and Heart Sound Recording. One of the innovative treatments we offer is electrical stimulation (e-stim) combined with acupuncture. This therapy merges the ancient art of acupuncture with contemporary electrical stimulation technology to provide a highly effective treatment for various conditions.

How E-stim Works

Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles at specific points along the body's meridians to balance energy flow and stimulate healing. When combined with electrical stimulation, a gentle electric current is passed between pairs of acupuncture needles. This addition of electrical stimulation enhances the effects of traditional acupuncture by:

  • Increasing Cellular Activity: The electrical currents help in promoting cell growth, tissue repair, and muscle strengthening by increasing cellular activity and blood circulation.
  • Reducing Inflammation: E-stim acupuncture can significantly reduce inflammation, which is a common underlying factor in many pain syndromes.
  • Relieving Pain: By stimulating the nerves and activating the body’s natural painkillers (endorphins), this method provides more profound pain relief compared to traditional acupuncture alone.
  • Enhancing Muscle Recovery: It is particularly beneficial in treating muscle stiffness and spasms, aiding in faster muscle recovery.

Conditions Treated

E-stim acupuncture is particularly effective for conditions such as:

  • Chronic and acute pain management
  • Arthritis and joint discomfort
  • Muscle spasms and sports injuries
  • Neurological disorders
  • Post-operative recovery

What to Expect During Your Treatment

During your e-stim acupuncture session at Lakewood Community Acupuncture, you will experience a sensation that may vary from a mild tingling to a strong but gentle thrumming. These sensations are typically well-tolerated by patients. Each session lasts approximately 30 minutes, during which our licensed acupuncturists will adjust the intensity of the electrical stimulation according to your therapeutic needs and comfort. E-stim acupuncture is a safe treatment with minimal side effects and is supported by numerous studies demonstrating its efficacy in enhancing the therapeutic benefits of traditional acupuncture.

I have been working with Jamie 2x per week for the past couple of weeks. He is extremely attentive, understanding and thorough. I was nervous to start with acupuncture because of my herniated disc and fear of needles but he has made the experience feel very safe and comfortable. I’ve noticed a decrease in pain after suffering for over a year. Highly recommend!

I recently had an incredible experience at this place, and I don't even know where to begin. I found myself in unbearable back pain, unable to stand up straight, and unsure of what caused it. Fortunately, I was able to schedule a prompt appointment, and Jamie's expertise was truly amazing! After receiving both cupping and acupuncture treatments, I noticed a remarkable improvement right away and within just two days, i was 95% back to my normal self. Don't hesitate to book an appointment here—it made a significant difference for me.

This is the best place ever! I get cupping and acupuncture when my back starts acting up and leave feeling like 50 pounds was lifted off my back. Crystal and Jamie are very thorough in their questions to understand what’s going on and the treatment they provide. And the prices can’t be beat. 10/10

I have been going to Lakewood Community Acupuncture for over a year and can’t imagine my life without it now!! It can truly help with so much - from physical pain (I have issues with my pelvic floor and multiple herniated discs) to emotional blocks, energy deficiencies and more! I ALWAYS feel better after acupuncture. I’ve seen all the practitioners and they are all extremely skilled, but Crystal is my go-to. She is not only very gentle and effective but always a delight to connect with. For the quality of service, atmosphere and price, you cannot do better. It’s been a game changer for me. Wholeheartedly recommend!!
