Acupuncture is founded on a thousand-year-old tradition based on the concept of balancing vital energy between Yin and Yang for the treatment of patients.

When the energy is in balance, the person is considered healthy. On the other hand, an imbalance in the flow of this vital energy is the cause of disease and pain.

Acupuncture therefore seeks to stimulate and increase the body's self-healing capacities. It aims to improve health and relieve various pains. In some cases, acupuncture and physiotherapy can be combined to relieve pain in patients.

Science is beginning to show that acupuncture stimulates different regions of the nervous system, leading to the release of natural pain-relieving substances, such as endorphins and encephalins. In addition, acupuncture helps regulate the flow of neurotransmitters in the brain, harmonizing the way the brain sends and receives information from diseased tissues or organs.

How is acupuncture performed?

Acupuncture uses precise points on the surface of the body, which are activated by the virtually painless insertion of a very fine stainless steel needle. Once the needle is placed, the patient can feel a very particular local sensation called "Qi", which results from the activation of the acupuncture point and which indicates that the therapeutic effect has been obtained.

The acupuncturist can use different tools and techniques other than the needle to stimulate the acupuncture points, such as laser, cupping, Guasha, electrical stimulation and moxa.

Acupuncture is a personalized therapy, where each case is interpreted and analyzed according to the specific characteristics of each patient.

Is acupuncture safe?

Acupuncture is very safe since it is performed with sterile and disposable needles (single use), thus minimizing the risk of infection.

Acupuncture is also
  free of toxicity as there is no inoculation of chemical or medical substances.
