Acupuncture was developed in China about 3000 years ago. The therapy with the needles is now used in addition to conventional medicine.
In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) man is permeated by the life energy ‘Qi’. A disturbed energy flow can cause pain and can also be the reason for many diseases.
In that treatment, sterile single-use needles that are specially designed are used. Patients occasionally feel a minimal puncture pain, which after some time triggers a feeling of warmth in these areas.
Acupuncture can help with headaches, back pain, hay fever, menstrual problems, allergic asthma or stomach and intestinal complaints. Even with birth preparation, an acupuncture treatment can provide relaxation and pain relief.
