Acupuncture

DSC_8315Acupuncture is a Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM) that can help prevent and cure illness and musculo-skeletal disorders. It stimulates the immune system, tissues and cells, and also produces a sedative effect for people suffering from nervousness or stress.

Acupuncture is for everyone, regardless of their age. There are no secondary effects and it is virtually painless. It regulates hormonal functions and diminishes sympathetic nervous system activity. Acupuncture has physical, emotional and/or psychological effects. Interestingly, it is also effective when there are no visual signs or explanation of illness in traditional Western medicine.

Acupuncture is both an art and a science. An ancestral method of healing, acupuncture is now recognized by the National Health Institute (USA) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

What can acupuncture treat?

Pain, nervous, muscular or bone disorders, stress, digestive or elimination problems, migraines, fertility or gynaecological problems, menopause, respiratory problems, sinusitis, allergies, etc.

 

Today, WHO recognizes acupuncture as an effective technique that can significantly treat 43 physiological disorders. But for more than 3,000 years, acupuncture has been used to treat any kind of physiological disorder in humans.

Answers to your questions

Does it hurt?

The introduction of the needle recalls the sensation of a mosquito bite, lasts only a fraction of a second and leaves no mark. The needles are the size of a hair and flexible.

 

Are the needles sterile?

The needles used are sterile and disposable, therefore for single use.

 

Do all acupuncture treatments use needles?

Not necessarily, moxa, cupping or guasha can also be used.

 

When should I consult in acupuncture?

As soon as you notice persistent discomfort (diarrhea or constipation, cold hands, headaches, nasal congestion, pain, fatigue, anxiety …) do not wait for the situation to get worse.

 

Your body is sending you a signal that the balance (good natural functioning) is broken. Acupuncture can restore this situation and allow you to use 100% of your energy.
