Stem Cell Enhancement FAQ

What is “Stem Cell”?
When you’re a child, and you fall and cut yourself while riding a bike, your body immediately goes to work on repairing that injury. Chemical signals are sent out and stem cells are recruited to assist in the healing process. As we age, our circulating stem cells begin to decline in both number and function. Many theories propose that this is a contributing reason to why we succumb to various illnesses and disease over time.

Numerous studies demonstrate a direct, positive correlation between the number of circulating stem cells and health, wellness, and regenerative capabilities. Stem cells are your body’s natural healing mechanism, and it’s important that you optimize this innate repair mechanism on a daily basis to keep yourself at your highest potential.

Why “optimize” my Stem Cells?
Optimizing your stem cells with acupuncture is critical for maintaining both the function and number of circulating stem cells available to keep you healthy, healing faster, feeling younger, and performing at your best.
What is Electroacupuncture, and does it help enhance Stem Cells?
Electroacupuncture is like traditional acupuncture, but we apply a small electrical current to the needles. This provides a safely heightened form of stimulation to the body in the form of vibrations, and helps to enhance and cultivate your stem cells.

The practice itself is similar to acupuncture – it’s the process of inserting fine needles throughout the body at specific points. The added effect of electrical current triggers the brain to facilitate the release of stem cells, so the body can benefit from their many healing properties.

What are the benefits of Electroacupuncture for Stem Cells?
  • Tissue repair
  • Pain reduction
  • Chronic pain reduction
  • Faster healing time
  • Tendon repair
  • Collagen production
Who is Electroacupuncture right for?
Anyone who has pain from a new injury, chronic pain from an old injury, surgical pain, or pain from illness, regardless of how long it has lasted or when the injury occurred, can benefit from stem cell enhancement using EA.


Is Electroacupuncture safe?
Yes. Acupuncture itself is more than 2,500 years old and is used by more than 8 million Americans to treat a range of physical ailments. Electroacupuncture uses similar needles (sterile, single-use, solid and about the thickness of a human hair) and sends a very low amount of current about 40-80 microamps, and is not transmitted through the body.
Does is hurt?
Stem cell stimulation doesn’t hurt anymore than traditional acupuncture, which most patients don’t feel.
