Treatments

Acupuncture is a very powerful tool for the prevention and treatment of many forms of illness. Acupuncture can be applied in combination with other techniques normally used in Traditional Chines Medicine, such as Herbal remedies, Gua sha massage and Cupping. All these  techniques can also be applied alone, depending on the specific condition of the patient. Learn more 

Acupuncture and its complementing techniques are an effective prevention tool because they assist the body in keeping its overall balance. They make the body stronger to face the solicitations of every day’s life, and make it more able to compensate and heal in time of sickness.
