Acupuncture is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (T.C.M.) where with the needle insertion to specific body points, it helps with unblocking and moving the qi flow. Its root comes from China and the history begins about 3.500 years ago. It is based on the theory of Yin-Yang, the constant observation of the outside with the inside, the relationship between the elements of the body and the examination of the pulse and the tongue. What seems remarkable is how this theory is verified over and over again, and it applies to all people and to all the corners of the earth.
TCM isn’t just the acupuncture part. It is a whole therapy system which includes diet, herbs, exercise and massage.
Acupuncture has a rapid action and the results are usually visible from the first session. The most common reason someone experiences it for the first time is pain. Chronic conditions usually require more time and several sessions. It has excellent results in all gynecological issues, migraines, digestive problems, sleep problems, mood improvement, stress management, muscle and joint pain, etc.
Depending on the condition or syndrome we face in a session, we have other tools that we might combine with the application of needles. For example, along with the classic needle application in some cases and conditions, we may need to use electrodes to further stimulate the points. Another technique is the application of moxa, from the plant Artimesia vulgaris, which has a very strong smell. Sometimes instead of moxa we use a special heat lamp, Teding Diancibo Pu to heat the area we want to work.
