According to traditional theory, acupuncture regulates the movement of qi and blood in the body, restoring homeostasis and promoting self healing. Scientific studies into acupuncture have demonstrated its effectiveness in a diverse range of conditions and symptoms, and have elucidated a multitude mechanisms that help explain how it works in the body.

Electroacupuncture (EA) is the use of specific frequencies, intensities, and pulses of electric current in between acupuncture needles in order to relieve pain and reduce tissue inflammation by “interrupting” pain signals and causing the release of natural painkillers. We co-authored and helped conduct a double-blind, randomized controlled trial on EA analgesia (pain relief) that was carried out at the Stanford Pain Lab and presented at the World Congress of Pain (Buenos Aires, 2014) and at the Society for Acupuncture Research (Harvard Medical School, 2015).
