Anyone have experience with this? Duke had it last week at his acupuncture session. It's interesting...tiny little clamps that are fastened onto the needle to conduct a mild current into the meridian being treated. It looks kinda like a pain management TENS unit, but with clamps instead of pads to conduct the electricity. The premise is that it provides a stronger stimulation than needles alone.

Duke has only had one of these treatments, so the jury is still out on efficacy with him. Just curious to see if other dogs have responded to this treatment.

I just wondered how this was working. Did you notice improvement?
