The human body is an organic entity in which meridians form a connection between the different organs and between these organs and the outer and skin tissue.
Imbalance of Yin and Yang causes disease. The Chinese medicine focuses on these imbalances. Acupuncture helps by regulating the movement of Qi (energy) by inserting ultra-fine sterile needles into specific points on the body that re-balance the movement of energy and therefore provides the body with the ability to function at its optimum level.
Meridians are the channels for Qi flows. Most acupuncture points are located along these channels. There are twelve main meridians, each corresponding to the twelve main organs in the body. By sticking a needle through the skin into an acupuncture point Qi can be added when there is not enough Qi or taken out when there is too much Qi. As a result of this, the life energy is strengthened, the pathogenic factors are eliminated, organs, tissues, blood, Qi, Yin and Yang are regulated and harmonized. So that the organs can function normally again and thus the disease is cured.
Modern scientific research has shown that acupuncture is able to influence the functioning of various systems of the human body, like the digestive, circulatory, respiratory, urinary tract and especially the nerve system and the endocrine system. Thus, a pathological state is converted into a normal physiological state. In addition, acupuncture has certain influence on the resistance and the immune system of the body. Acupuncture can also be used to prevent disease.
Besides, in our clinic, we make sure that every patient receives a hygienic treatment and therefore our acupuncture needles are packed in a sterile blister and are used only once.
