Acu-TENS Training, Formerly Electrostimulation Therapy (EST)

Acu-TENS is the application of pulsed electrical stimulation via acupuncture points and the meridian system. It has been known under various guises and has been known as The Equinox System, Biophysical Solutions, EST and even Black Box Treatment.

Acu-TENS is quite simply, Electro Acupuncture without needles.

Eligible for Acu-TENS training are: Complementary Therapists, Drug & Alcohol Workers, Support Workers and Health Care Professionals. The two-day course includes all the basic skills for Acu-TENS and is targeted at those therapists who deal with stress and stress related conditions such as addictions; where it has affectionately become known as "the Black Box Treatment". The picture shows the latest students receiving their certificates.

Rodney Robinson the originator of the Acu-TENS method for drug and alcohol addiction is now offering Acu-TENS training for:
  • Healthcare Professionals
  • Drug & Alcohol Workers
  • Complementary Therapy Practitioners

New EST Unit - The CLASSIC4

Announcing the arrival of the CLASSIC 4 treatment unit for EST and Electro acupuncture. Featuring a host of advanced features to improve treatment outcomes.

  • An opportunity to train with the originator of the Acu-TENS method
Biophysical Medicine - The biophysical approach to medicine uses the biophysical properties of the body, that is to say, the electrical, electromagnetic or subtle energy aspects of the body: Acupuncture meridians are one such example of a system of circulating energy quite apart from that of the blood, lymph or nervous system. Acu-TENS uses low amplitude electrical pulses to correct the activity of meridian channels to restore health. 

Using Acu-TENS the acupuncture system is manipulated but without using needles or piercing the skin.  Surface electrodes are used over acupuncture points in place of needles.  It can be accurately described as electroacupuncture without needles.

Central to any successful Biophysical treatment is the quality of the equipment and the ability to precisely and accurately control the pulse parameters such as waveform and frequency.  For this reason therapy units have always been designed specifically for the method of EST. No TENS units have ever been used or recommended for Acu-TENS use although there are several copycat courses using this type of inferior equipment. The Classic4 is the only electro-stimulation unit currently recommended for Acu-TENS and used in the original Acu-TENS training courses.
