Crazy Acupuncture – Arm moves by itself

During one of his treatment courses Dr. Lombardi stimulates the bicep brachii motor point and gets a huge response.

Watch the treatment of the motor point of the Brachioradialis. Motor point acupuncture is the practice of inserting acupuncture needles into motor points on muscles (the place where the nerve attaches to the muscle) can cause a fasciculation (twitch response) which would reset the nerve and muscle causing relaxation of contracted muscle and an increase in strength.

Ken Ansell is one of only a few practitioners in Western Canada who practices this type of motor point acupuncture called EXSTORE that uses electro-acupuncture for motor point stimulation.

Contact HealthWorks Regina today to book a consult with Ken Ansell.
