Is There Such a Thing as Needleless Acupuncture?

history of acupunctureAcupuncture is known as the ancient science of healing that uses very thin needles inserted into specific points of the body. Though the needles are completely safe and don’t cause any pain, you may find yourself wishing that you could reap the benefits of acupuncture without the use of needles. Turns out, it’s possible!

Microcurrent Point Stimulation: The Needleless Acupuncture

Microcurrent Point Stimulation applies low frequency DC current stimulation to the same acupoints targeted in standard acupuncture. This therapeutic protocol has been proven as an efficient and precise pain management strategy. It’s based on the belief that pain arises from several different locations on the body and requires a multi-system approach for permanent results.

How Does Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS) Work?

MPS uses a handheld device to apply concentrated DC microcurrents to therapeutically active points called acupoints. The microcurrents relax muscles, calm the nerves, release endorphins, and naturally eliminate pain. MPS can also increase or decrease the amount of circulation in the area of the injury to create the sense of ice therapy for pain control or heat therapy for natural regeneration and healing.

Who Should Use Needleless Acupuncture?

The MPS needleless acupuncture is most popular for people suffering from chronic pain. Migraines, fibromyalgia, and sciatica are just a few conditions that are often undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, and ineffectively treated, leaving the patient to suffer the effects physically, socially, emotionally, and financially.

MPS provides a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical solution to chronic pain that physical therapists deem as one of the safest, simplest, and most effective techniques to eliminate cycles of chronic pain. Studies show that complete or substantial relief from pain often occurs within just 1, 2 or 3 MPS applications.

Best of all, many insurances cover needleless acupuncture because it can be considered a form of physical therapy. So what are you waiting for? Kiss that chronic pain goodbye for good.
