Acupuncture is a part of traditional Chinese medicine, whose origins date back about 5000 years. The use of acupuncture is officially recognized by the World Health Organization and is one of the few branches of complementary medicine that doctors can officially use for medical treatment.
Principle of treatment with acupuncture is based on establishing the natural balance in the body. The Chinese say that the body is full of flowing energy called Qi, the flow of which must be unobstructed in order for our health to be perfect. Various factors (emotions, weather, environment, stress, diet) may affect the flow of energy and cause imbalance.
With acupuncture needles, we stimulate certain acupuncture points, thus allowing to rebalance the flow of energy throughout the body.
Effects of acupuncture are following:
• Establishing the homeostasis (inner balance)
• Improvement of the immune system,
• Anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic,
• Stimulation of recovery of muscles ad nerves after paralysis or trauma
