What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing techniques used on the planet since 2000 BC and continues to be applied and evolved to this day with impressive results.
In recent decades it has been established as an integrated treatment system in many developed countries of the western world.
What are its advantages?
- Acupuncture is painless and can be applied to people of all ages.
- It cures acute or chronic pain and has a long duration of action (months or years).
- It has anti-inflammatory action and balances the immune system.
- It is often more effective than medication for chronic diseases, and it is also indicated in cases where the medication is either ineffective or causes side effects due to high dosage.
- It acts synergistically with the medication, that is, it enhances its action, without having side effects or interactions with it and thus allows the reduction of drug dosage in a chronic disease.
- Medications or dietary supplements may be taken concomitantly during treatment.
- It is a safe treatment when applied by a specialised doctor.
- It stimulates and rejuvenates the body in general (and therefore helps in the recovery phase from various diseases or in patients after chemotherapy / radiotherapy).
- It has affordable treatment costs.
