Treatment Methods

Acupuncture is a kind of special treatment used mostly in China. This sort of “external therapy for internal diseases” is based on the idea of the acupoints and Meridians stimulation. First, the doctors reveal the cause of the disease according to the diagnosis and treatment methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Having found the lesions inside the patient’s body, the specialists work out the individual regimen of treatment. Our aim is to regulate the level of Qi energy, maintain Yin and Yang balance, and reconcile the viscera function.

As distinguished from many other ways of treatment, acupuncture does not rely on medication. We find certain points on the patient’s body and using a fine needle stimulate the nerves, in order to achieve the purpose of healing. Along with needles, our doctors apply the heat of fire to stimulate the active spots of human body. This way of treatment is called moxibustion.
