Electronic Acupuncture's Benefits for Beauty

With the traditional ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture, tiny needles are stuck on key areas all over the body called acupoints. The theory is that the body is made of energy pathways and when one of the pathways is blocked, pain or some other malady occurs. The needles applied to the acupoints works to unblock those pathways.

Electronic acupuncture does not use needles. Instead, using a portable device, electromagnetic wave impulses are delivered to key strategic acupoints on the hand and palm by way of a handheld wand. Typically, it is the left hand and palm that is treated since the left side of the body is most susceptible to electromagnetic wave impulses. These electronic acupuncture devices come with an intricate hand and palm map so that you know exactly where to place the wand to deliver this alternative beauty treatment.

The electromagnetic wave impulses delivered to the acupoints triggers the body to produce specific responses. For instance, when applied to those hand and palm areas designating dark eye circles, the electronic acupuncture works to boost blood circulation and therefore oxygenation. For wrinkles, the acupuncture boosts the repair of collagen fibers. For skin dryness or oiliness caused by hormones, you could treat the areas of the hand and palm that correspond to the hormone centers of the body.

The bonus is that your handheld electronic acupuncture device can also be used for a variety of other maladies and even as a diagnostic tool.
