What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture can be traced back to ancient medicine in China, where it was assumed several millennia before the Christian era that energy flows through the human body via certain paths (so-called “meridians”).

According to Chinese medicine, this energy resurfaces on the skin at over 700 points, and flows through 12 main meridians which are connected to specific organs or functions

acupuncture can restore balance in this energy flow: by harmonising the energy flow, it can relieve pain. Significantly, acupuncture does not directly treat the diseased organ or the organ that is not functioning properly, but rather the meridian or acupuncture point to which the organ is connected.

What are the effects of acupuncture?

The clinically and experimentally proven effects of acupuncture are:

  • palliative
  • relaxing
  • anti-inflammatory
  • mood-lifting
  • strengthening of the immune system

Acupuncture in Practice

Treatment takes about 30 to 40 minutes per session. The practitioner starts by placing the patient in a calm and relaxed position (usually lying down). A full treatment is usually a series of 10 to 15 sessions. Acupuncture can be enhanced by the flow of electricity.
