There are many acupuncture techniques available for pain relief and rapid healing. Acupressure techniques are very effective for self-treatment of headaches, low back pain, neck and shoulder pain. One such technique is G-Jo. The points used in G-Jo are a bit painful to rub, but they are immediately effective. (G-jo should not be used while pregnant.)
In my office, I use an electric acupuncture tool. It is very safe, effective, painless and faster than traditional acupuncture. I mostly use it to arrest pain. It is a great companion to chiropractic adjusting. Electro-acupuncture is effective for all sorts of body aches and headaches as well as other conditions.
Another way to treat the acupuncture meridians is with Cold Laser or Low-Level Light Therapy. That will be the subject of my next blog.
