Are there different types of acupuncture?

There are different acupuncture techniques, all of which Dr. Barrack offers. Typically, acupuncture treatments utilize dry needles. If determined necessary, Dr. Barrack may chose another method, including:

  • aqua-acupuncture: Liquids such as saline or vitamin B-12 are injected into an acupuncture point.
  • moxibustion: Artemisia, a special herb, is used to heat the acupuncture point.
  • electrical acupuncture: Acupuncture needles are connected with electrical leads which impart different electrical frequencies through the needles.
