What is acupuncture
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) therapy that has been practiced for over 2500 years. It reestablishes balance in our bodies without resorting to chemicals, has no adverse side effects, and can provide definitive solutions to various acute and chronic diseases for which drug treatments are often ineffective.
In TCM, no clear distinction is made between body and soul, since the two are inter-linked. Acupuncture is therefore effective for both physical and psychological disorders.
In 2003, the World Health Organization has recognized the effectiveness of acupuncture for the treatment of 100 pathologies.
Your treatment session
During your first visit, Dr. Ning Li, our chief TCM therapist, carries out an energy health check-up in order to determine the therapeutic method that is most suited to your profile and builds a personalized therapeutic plan program. The plan can include acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, Tuina massage, as well as advice on adjustments to your lifestyle.
The therapist stimulates different points of the body along the meridians, using very thin, sterile needles.
The meridians are channels that form a network through energy flows, and that link the different functions of our body.
There are approximately 1000 points of acupuncture along the meridian, each with a specific function, linked to the different organs.
By inserting needles on the appropriate points, Dr. Ning Li, and frees the energy channels and removes the blockages.
Acupuncture does not hurt, and you’ll be surprised at how deeply relaxed you will feel during the session. Some points may however cause a dull, or a muscle contraction, it is a sign that your body reacts to the stimulation.
Once all needles are in place, you will relax for approximately 20-30 minutes, enjoying savoring the present.
