Acupuncture is becoming the most commonly used treatment in the US. It is gaining popularity as an effective treatment for various health conditions. However, many people are still reluctant to try electric acupuncture therapy since they consider it risky and mysterious. Other people consider acupuncture as an ancient treatment by Chinese people who did it years ago in a small room behind their noodle shop.

Well, this is not the reality. It is the right time that the veil of mystery and risk be removed from electro acupuncture treatment and tell you some facts that you might not have known. The following list is interesting but can be very surprising for you.

1. Acupuncture can be divided into several kinds. In fact, it is not online an old Chinese medicine, auricular (ear) acupuncture refers to the Japanese style, Korean refer it is as hand acupuncture, and there are also five phase acupuncture included in the list.

2. Researchers have also concluded that electro acupuncture can affect the chemistry of the brain positively. It gives the brain new ideas and clues and helps the brain to work well.

3. Acupuncture has a very old history - thousands of years old. It was first introduced in China as an effective way of treating fevers, infections and other ailments. The system developed comprehensively over the centuries and became an internal medicine system using food therapy, massage, heat, herbs together with the usage of needles and electricity.

4. The body has more than 365 acupuncture points. And surprisingly, all points have name according to its function or location. Some common names are celestial tripod, crouching rabbit, and armpit abyss.

6. The needles used in acupuncture therapy are very tiny (about a hair's diameter). The needles require no shots and injections are almost painless.

7. If two patients are undergoing acupuncture treatment, it doesn't mean that the two treatments will be the same. As every individual is unique with different lifestyle, health history, and symptoms, the treatment for each patient will also be customized according to their needs.

Acupuncture is a very relaxing procedure and does not cause any pain. In fact, acupuncturists have experienced clients who seriously snore during the therapy.
