An extremely high-level technique, used as a medical ninjutsu. The human body is controlled with electrical signals from the brain, but a person who had those electrical signals cut off with this technique will become unable to make their body move as they want. By transforming the chakra within one's body and giving it the properties of electricity, one creates an electric field. As soon as a strike of the hand lands, electricity is poured into the enemy's nervous system, severing the signals and deranging their body control. The target's body moves in any way, except how they want it to move. For the common shinobi, battle, not to mention even just walking, will become impossible. Because she's an expert in medical treatments, Tsunade was able to master this technique.
The victim can partially overcome the technique if they manage to relearn the connection between their brain and their limbs, as Kabuto Yakushi, being a medical-nin himself, demonstrates. This feat, however, is not an easy one and takes a high amount of concentration and intelligence.
- Despite Tsunade converting chakra into electricity, it is not completely clear whether or not this technique involves Lightning Release because of how the databook entry phrases the technique's description.
- Sakura is able to use this technique in Jump Ultimate Stars. In the game she charges chakra in her hand and thrusts the opponent with her palm, causing damage and leaving the target confused.
