What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a healing method based on traditional Chinese medicine. It is a theoretical, complex and complete treatment system whose history is lost over the years. The history of acupuncture begins 4,000 years ago in China and 160 years ago in Europe. It is a complete and complex treatment technique, which is based on the painless placement of needles in clearly defined areas of the skin. Acupuncture aims to correct imbalances in the flow of qi by stimulating anatomical areas above or below the skin known as acupuncture points, most of which are connected by channels known as "meridians".

Effectiveness of Acupuncture

Acupuncture is not a panacea. It is applied alone or in combination with other modern therapeutic - diagnostic means. The specialized physiotherapist knows the limits and the effectiveness of each treatment he applies and can properly advise his patients.

Of course, compromises on patient safety are not meant. Depending on the diseases, the permanent results of the acupuncture treatment amount to 60-80%.
