Acupuncture Treatment is the stimulation of specific points on the skin of the body using fine needles.
There are two types of Acupuncture:
- Classical Acupuncture: following the meridian theory of traditional Chinese medicine. It is used with moxa on many occasions to heat acupuncture points and enhance its effect. This type of acupuncture produces a feeling of relaxation and well-being during its application.
- Neuro-anatomical Acupuncture: stimulation of muscle trigger points and nerve ganglia. It is used in neurological disorders: bell's palsy, neuropathies, trigeminal neuralgia, herpes zoster ... and in musculoskeletal pain.
Acupuncture is very effective in the treatment of pain, both acute and chronic. It is necessary to make accurate diagnosis of neuroanatomic involvement, as well as the blockage of energy meridians. It helps balance the organism through the energy regulation of the different organs.
