Acu-Current Therapy Treatment Overview
Acu-Current Therapy consists of treatment with microcurrent electricity at new acupuncture points in the fascia around muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints.
This is combined with myofascial acupressure stretches and treatment in stretch positions to create a new modality.
Prescribed patient self-care between treatment sessions reinforces improvements and extends benefits.

Acu-Current Therapy In-Depth
How Acu-Current Therapy Works?
Acu-Current Therapy treatment sessions involve a combination of micro-current electricity, new acupuncture points (in the fascia around muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints), myofascial acupressure stretches, and stretch positions for the patient.
This is accompanied by patient self/home-care instructions and activities after/between treatment sessions.
Why Acu-Current Therapy Works?
Most pain conditions are caused by tight muscles, restrictions in related joints and posture imbalance.
Acu-Current Therapy treatments loosen tightness/adhesion in the fascia and acupuncture channels to release restrictions in joint motion; a process which increases local circulation, stimulates endorphin release and relieves pain.
What Does Acu-Current Therapy Treat?
Acu-Current Therapy is effective for treating a wide range of pain conditions including both acute and chronic pain (musculo-skeletal, neurological, visceral).
It is frequently used to treat arthritis, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, sinusitis, respiratory problems, gastrointestinal problems and gynecological issues.
How Acu-Current Therapy Was Developed
The Acu-Current method was developed by Dr. Malvin Finkelstein over his 40-year career as an acupuncturist and oriental medicine doctor.
It synthesizes techniques and theory drawn from acupuncture and Oriental medicine; acupressure methods including shiatsu, tuina; qigong; the bodywork of Lauren Berry, PT; osteopathy; and microcurrent electrical treatment.
