Acupuncture is a 6000-year-old method of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to prevent and treat diseases.
The foundation of Chinese Acupuncture developed from the concept of Qi (vital energy), which flows in various channels throughout the body. Treatment with Acupuncture is undertaken with the aim of restoring all the body systems to a state of balance.
The Acupuncturist uses needles, Moxa (heat), Acupressure or Laser on specific acupuncture points to optimize the energy flow in order to improve condition and regain health.
A number of needles may be inserted at specific acupuncture points and be left in the body for several minutes, or a stimulation or Moxa might be applied. Acupuncture stimulates the body’s normal healing and pain- relieving mechanisms.
Only sterile disposable needles are used.
