TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the insertion of very thin filiform needles. This means they are almost less than half a hair width, and with no tube.

 

It is a therapy of Chinese Medicine that was developed along the last 3000 years of clinical experience.  It has not stopped researching and today we know why and how it works biologically. The WHO considers Chinese Traditional Medicine the most effective and prevalent medical system after western allopathy.

 

Acupuncture is one of several therapies Traditional Chinese Medicine has to regain and maintain health.
