ETPS Microcurrent

ETPS Microcurrent (Electro Therapeutic Point Stimulation) was developed by Bruce Hocking, acupuncturist - Toronto, Canada. Bruce pioneered the use of microcurrent and developed a system of using it for treating acupuncture points.

It is an effective, quick, inexpensive and portable method for releasing tightness and tenderness in points (acupuncture, trigger, motor) or adhesions that greatly enhances effectiveness of acupuncture or massage

An ETPS unit is a microcurrent electrical stimulator and point finder. It is designed for use directly on the skin, not through wires connected to acupuncture needles.
