Acupuncture is a natural alternative in promoting blood circulation and alleviating pain by inserting thread-like needles into strategic points on the body.
It comes from Traditional Chinese Medicine and is now commonly practiced as it’s found to have an array of health benefits.

Traditional Acupuncture – the needles are inserted and that’s it!
Electro-acupuncture – the needles are inserted and a small current is applied to create a continuous “twitch” in the muscle.
