Lt. Col. (Dr.) Paul Crawford, 99th Medical Operations Squadron associate program director for Nellis Family Medicine Residency, attaches an Alpha Simulator to U.S Army Staff Sgt. Paul Kelly, motor transport operator from the Community Base Warrior Transition Unit in Fort Lewis, Wash., during his acupuncture appointment April 17, 2013, at the Mike O’Callaghan Federal Medical Center, at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev. An Alpha Stimulator is used for electro-acupuncture. Electro-acupuncture is a form of acupuncture where a small electric current is passed between pairs of acupuncture needles. This practice augments the use of regular acupuncture, can restore health and well-being, and is particularly good for treating pain. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Matthew Lancaster)
