The electro acupuncture devices are becoming popular not only with the Chinese people, but all over the world as well. The reasons of this popularity derive from the fact that it allows people to treat many illnesses and renew their energy with the help of stimulating the acupoints in their body and become healthier in the natural way, not taking any medicines. The oriental medicine has strong traditions and is very ancient.
In the twentieth century the art of acupressure has developed into the modern art of using the electro acupuncture devices. The main advantages of using the electro acupuncture devices therapy consist in that they allow practitioners to treat more effectively and make their work easier for them as they will not have to use hands. The treatment in the case of using the electro acupuncture devices is better as the device always acts as it is programmed to act and a doctor can be tired so a patient may not get the stimulation he or she needs. With the help of the electric devices the time of the treatment can be shortened as the electric effect of acupuncture can be made more intensive if the health of a patient allows it.
The electro acupuncture devices also let the doctors control the frequency and number of stimulating when treating their patients and with the usual hand stimulation they would not be able to control it in such a way. The strict control of the treatment effect can be necessary when dealing with the cases of neuralgia or paralysis. It can be said that the modern technologies together with the ancient medical traditions are able to make the work of the doctors better and easier. But at the same time the electro acupuncture devices have some faults when using them. Though a doctor can cure several patients at the same time using the devices he can not take the direct part in all the process of treatment and sometimes is not able to observe all the changes in the treatment of a patient.
The electro acupuncture devices therapy is used in many cases of neurological diseases, paralysis, spasms as it gives good pain relief in these cases. At the same time there are contradictions in using the electro devices and one has to be very careful when he treats hard cases of heart diseases. In general it is forbidden to place the electric needles near the heart or at the heart area as the heart can answer to the electric impulses unexpectedly. The doctors also think that it is undesirable to put the electrodes on the sides of the spinal cord as it can cause the unexpectable reactions of the nervous system.
In general, the duration of one electrical stimulating with the needles does not exceed 30 minutes, and in most cases, the one seance of the acupuncture therapy lasts for ten - thirty minutes. Rarely it can last for an hour but this happens in the very serious cases concerning neurological disorders. The electrical current does not go through the body as it is not so high but it influences the needed points of the body.
Making conclusions it can be said that electro acupuncture devices are very comfortable in use and can successfully substitute the manual acupuncture therapy.
This kind of the therapy may also be used by the doctors that are sometimes too busy to manage to pay attention to all their patients and it is also necessary when a patient needs long treatment and strong stimulation of the problem points. A doctor who is going to use these electric devices should consult the instruction to use it properly and avoid complications.
