Non Traditional Acupuncture
We offer several non traditional options for those that may have an aversion to the use of needles. Our non traditional approach offers the most versatile and advanced therapy available. Offered through pad, interferential, and probe techniques.
Non-invasive pain management and electro-medicine are rapidly growing fields; with many billions of dollars spent annually for these procedures.
Acutron Mentor – Microcurrent Electro-Medicine
The Acutron Mentor is not just a microcurrent device. It’s approved by the FDA.
Classic and Micro-Interferential Treatments
This modality is designed to address subacute and chronic pain relief for large regions of the body, such as the hips, knees, shoulders and low back. Excellent with simultaneous exercise and/or myofascial release for rehabilitation after surgery or injuries.
A form of electrostimulation that utilized four electrodes surrounding the part of the body to be treated, with each set of two electrodes at a frequency out-of-phase with the other set. Used for treatment of large and broad regions of the body. The Acutron Mentor offers 6 different pre-set interferential treatment set-ups, some in the microcurrent range and some classic milliamp IF. ‘Classic’ IF refers to the original high-intensity form of interferential current developed in Germany in the 1960’s by Hans Nemec.
Russian Stimulation Treatments
This modality is designed to address treatments related to sports medicine practices. A specific form of electro-stimulation with a polyphasic waveform produced by dividing a 2500 Hz carrier frequency into 50 Hz packets. Originally developed by the Russian Olympic team for muscle mass enhancement, now often used for pain control in the United States.
Micro-current and Light Therapies
Electrical energy and light have been used for treating health conditions and pain relief since ancient times. The first use of electrical currents for this purpose has been traced to the ancient Romans who used electrical fish from the Mediterranean Sea to treat gout pain. Even earlier at the eve of the Bronze Age the Chinese used acupuncture needles, which create low electrical discharges when inserted in the body. The ancient Greeks have been known to treat health conditions by bathing patients in filtered light of specific frequencies.
Modern research and technology have allowed the creation of much more precise electro-therapeutic tools. Acceptance of electro-therapy for pain management started in the 1960’s with the development of portable TENS units. Since then, many variations on electrical stimulation have been created, including electric muscle stimulation, interferential, high-volt and microcurrent devices.
Is a highly effective holistic treatment for pain, anxiety, depression, stress, nausea, and chronic ailments. Similar to traditional acupuncture, while using the exact same system of Chinese Medicine. It is Acupuncture without needles, or non-needle acupuncture using micro-current. The Acutron Mentor device delivers gentle electrical pulses with color light frequencies that help restore the healthy flow of Qi (energy) throughout your body, while removing any blockages and clearing out stagnant areas, thus creating a stronger and clearer experience of health and well-being.
