Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been practiced by Chinese and Europeans since the ancient times. All the different approaches that have been preserved since now have different theoretical background and different practice. We use a mix between the ancient Chinese approach and the modern western medical approach. This model is called Biomedical Acupuncture.

By using Acupuncture we can penetrate deep into soft tissue and release blocks, we can communicate with the brain and help it re-programme the way it interprets sensory input from the periphery. Thus, we can decrease pain, break ischemic cycles and in combination with massage we can help the body adapt easier to the physiotherapeutic plan.

Lastly, Acupuncture can be used alone for self-healing, relaxation and musculoskeletal pathologies.
