Overview

Acupuncture originates from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This is the method of treatment whose history dates back more than 5000 years and which is still used today. Unlike intramuscular manual therapy, acupuncture is based on the idea of “body meridians” or energy flows, and works at the system level, affecting local and specified points. It is based on the use of needles, their length, direction and stimulation.

ATTENTION!!! All the used needles are disposable and are used only once.

Types of medical acupuncture

Conventionally, the acupuncture can be divided into two main directions, depending on the application site:
Auricular (ear) – in this case the needles are placed directly on external ear. External ear is divided into areas is responsible for certain body area or internal organ. This therapeutic technique is very effective, but short. The best use of auricular acupuncture is the pain and spasm relief.

System acupuncture is the use of the method throughout the body. It involves local points (near the site of exposure), peripheral (reflex points of the affected area), the interaction between the meridians and “irregular points”. This type of acupuncture requires compilation of an effective and reasonable formula to use and to achieve good results. Practice has shown that system acupuncture is an effective therapeutic technique with stable results.
Thermal acupuncture is warming-up using herbal cigarettes or infrared lamp of needles and biologically active zones. This technique enhances the therapeutic effect and activates internal corporal strength for a speedy recovery. Also known as tzu therapy.
For added effect, the patient can receive activated beads or plates fixed by tape. The patient may be suggested to walk with the stickers from a few hours up to several days. This type of therapy is sometimes called applieopresspuncture.
It should be noted that acupuncture and needle therapy – two at first sight identical concepts – are in fact completely different! Acupuncture is one of the main methods of TCM and it operates under a principle of meridians scouring. On the other hand, needle therapy is the type of therapeutic impact, adapted to modern medicine, acting on the principle of local points and neural signals.
