a Traditional Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture is practiced in China for about 5,000 years and its goal is to balance the body energy. This allows a smooth flow of energy of the person and promote a natural ability for everyone to achieve a cure or a remarkable decrease of the health problem, such as pain, stress, or other illnesses.
There are specific relationships between acupuncture points on the body and the organs or bodily functions. It is through the introduction of fine disposable needles on these points that the energy is balanced, leading to the proper functioning of the body. These needles do not inject or contain any products.
Acupuncture is an excellent concomitant therapy and/or alternative to conventional Western medicine and promotes a whole understanding of the problems of the patient, taking it as a whole and not as a set of unrelated symptoms.
