Along with gene and stem cell therapies and gene directed pharmacotherapy, neuromodulation is one of the most exciting developments of modern healthcare. Neuromodulation is defined as the reversible therapeutic interaction of activity of the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous system with electrical or centrally applied pharmacological agents.

We use neuromodulation method which involves percutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (PENS) to treat pain, spasticity, and bowel and bladder functions. During this painless procedure small electrical current passes through fine needles/electrodes into the soft tissues where specific peripheral sensory nerves are distributed.

Electro-acupuncture and PENS are different and superior to the conventional TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, commonly used in physical therapy) where electrodes are attached to the surface of the skin.

Our contribution to the field of acupuncture, and to the treatment of pain in particular, include innovations in Electro-acupuncture and in Percutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (PENS) therapy.

We use our patented methods and devices to maximize the effectiveness of neuromodulation and electro-acupuncture and to ensure patient's comfort. Examples include lightweight electrodes, portable PENS, and precise needle delivery system. These innovations have been introduced by Stas Gavronsky, M.S., Lic.Ac., the founder of ASG.

While the results of electro-acupuncture and neromodulation treatment may vary from patient to patient, our goal, always, is to give our patients the best care possible.
