Electroacupuncture for Pain Management

Electroacupuncture therapy involves insertion and electrostimulation of very fine acupuncture needles. It is a Western adaptation of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture. We use current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology to stimulate these acupuncture points with tiny electrical currents. This therapy is backed by Clinical Evidence.

Are you suffering from chronic pain? Medical management has its limitations, why not try holistic care, for mind & body therapy! Electroacupuncture can help with chronic pain management. It is completely safe and gaining popularity everyday.

Manage Pain

Electroacupuncture therapy causes the release of natural opioid peptides (endorphins & dynorphins) & serotonin to help with stress response and pain. It also controls the Gate Mechanism in the spinal cord to modify pain.Contact us today to discuss your issues and arrange treatment.

What Clients Say

I have had normal acupuncture before but electro-acupuncture is currently much more successful. The pain in my neck has gone and the pain in my shoulder is reducing rapidly. I would certainly recommend electro-acupuncture to anyone with a pain problem. The treatment is painless and actually quite relaxing! It has the added advantage of being drug free.

I was very nervous as it was my first time getting electroacupuncture. Dr Kumar reassured me that we would be going at my pace & it would be in my hands. I am excited to get back and continue with my treatment.

I have just finished a 6 week course of electro acupuncture with Dr Kumar. The results are amazing I had been in so much pain since Nov 2021after a fall. I landed on my shoulder and the pain in my shoulder and clavicle was really really painful 😥…well after the 6wks I’m pain free and sleep very well. I wish I had know about this treatment sooner, I would definitely recommend electo acupuncture to anyone with pain. Dr Kumar is very professional also friendly and explains everything that is happening and puts you at ease. I’ve also enjoyed the chats 😊…Thank you so much Dr Kumar…kindest regards Valerie Brownson

Sharon B

I was in a lot of pain before I had this treatment. After having 1 session, it took away 90% of the pain. I would recommend anyone who is in a lot of pain to have this done. I was really nervous before but while Dr Kumar started it I realised it didn’t hurt and wasn’t uncomfortable. He is a lovely Dr and I will certainly be going back for more.
