Is electroacupuncture safe?

 People who pursue electroacupuncture may worry about the risk of electric shock or other injuries of that nature. Fortunately, electroacupuncture is an extremely safe technique which makes use of an extremely small current during treatments. The current used is far too small for anything more than a tingling sensation.

There are a general class of contraindications that  are considered by the doctor who uses electroacupuncture. As these are taken into consideration, electroacupuncture is very safe.  Devices are regulated for safety by strict FDA guidelines for safe manufacturing and design, in order that no harm would come to a patient.
