What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is the most famous of the five branches of Chinese medicine. The discovery of medical texts in 1973 in a tomb at Mawangdui in Hunan province in China allows us to date its origins to approximately 2000 years ago. Acupuncture aims at prevent and treat diseases and pains (allergies, pain syndromes, headaches, hypertension, articular or muscular pain, digestive disorders, stress, anxiety, gynecological troubles ) by stimulating precise points along meridians of the body after an accurate diagnosis established beforehand.
Acupuncturists typically use acupuncture needles but can also use heat (moxibustion) and, more recently, laser. This ancient technique has proven impressive results from a therapeutic point of view and plays a crucial role for our health today.
