    Background: There was a demonstration in New Orleans recently of the most advanced form of acupuncture.

    It's called electric acupuncture.

    Here's the story from Kirk Carney of station WDSU-TV in New Orleans:
    THESE ARE THE TOOLS OF ELECTRIC ACCUPUNCTURE. THEY'RE NOT VERY COMPLICATED LOOKING. A NEW ORLEANS SECRETARY, RAYNE MILLER, WHO HAD BEEN SUFFERING FROM BURSITUS AND A CHRONIC SINUS CONDITION, VOLUNTEERED FOR A DEMONSTRATION OF ELECTRIC ACCUPUNCTURE. FIRST, TWO JAPANESE DOCTORS TESTED REFLEX POINTS TO DETERMINE WHERE THE NEEDLE SHOULD BE APPLIED. THEN THE PROCEDURE BEGAN. DOCTORS WHO KNOW ABOUT ELECTRIC ACUPUNCTURE CLAIM IT'S 20 TO 40 PERCENT FASTER THAN THE CONVENTIONAL METHODS. AND THEY SAY IT DOESN'T PAIN THE PATIENT. THE DOCTORS THEN MOVED TO TREAT THE SINUS CONDITION BY USING ELECTRIC ACUPUNCTURE ON THE FACE NEAR THE NOSE. DOCTORS SAY THE ELECTRICITY ADDED TO THE PROCEDURE MAKES IT PAINLESS AND 10- THOUSAND TIMES FASTER AND STRONGER AND THE DOCTORS SAY THEY HAVE NOT HAD ONE UNFAVORABLE REACTION. RAYNE MILLER OF NEW ORLEANS DIDN'T BREAK THE STREAK. LATER, AFTER THE PROCEDURE, SHE SAID SHE FELT BETTER AND COULD BREATHE EASIER. THIS IS KIRK CARNEY IN NEW ORLEANS.

    While controversy rages sporadically over the effectiveness of the ancient Chinese art of acupuncture, the ancient art grows more modern. In New Orleans recently there was a demonstration of the lastest ??? called electric acupuncture.
