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.
