Acupuncture is a branch of traditional Chinese medicine, one of the oldest methods of treatment. It is a science which origins date back over 4000 years and which aims to treat the man in its entirety. Acupuncture is a natural therapy, non-invasive, safe and effective, which is used to prevent, improve and heal many health problems.
The treatment consists of inserting small and extremelly thin needles into very specific areas of the body which are then easily stimulated to trigger the body’s natural healing response.
According to the theory of the traditional acupuncture, there are 12 energy channels, called meridians, which energetically join together 12 organs and 12 body functions, together with all their physiological aspects, as well as the sensory and emotional aspects of our being.
Acupuncture is based on the concept that there are imbalances or blockages of energy underlying the diseases and the occurrence of a disease is caused by the obstruction of the flow of energy in specific points along the meridians. When these blockages occur, the disease appears. The goal of the treatment by acupuncture is to intervene in restoring the energetic balance.
In 1997 the National Institute of Statistics acknowledged the effectiveness of acupuncture which is accepted and recognized as one of the treatment methods of the modern medicine.
