More About

Introduction:

Acupuncture is an ancient therapy of Chinese origin, which consists of the application of very fine needles, in specific points of the body, to improve immunity and help in the treatment of emotional problems and, even, of some physical diseases such as sinusitis, asthma, migraine or arthritis.

Acupuncture techniques are based on the idea that the body is made up of energy, accumulated in various regions, which are called meridians. If the flow of energy in these meridians is unbalanced, it causes inflammation in the body, causing symptoms such as pain, tiredness and weakness.

In many cases, acupuncture is also used as an auxiliary treatment to quit smoking, especially auriculotherapy, as it helps to fight anxiety and deal with cigarette withdrawal symptoms.

In these cases, it is usually advisable to do 2 or 3 acupuncture sessions per week, for 3 months or more.

How it is done?

  • Conventional acupuncture involves the use of very thin, disposable needles with varying lengths and widths, to be applied to different points of the skin, based on the symptoms, diseases and health problems presented by a person.
  • Acupuncture sessions are done by an acupuncturist, who can be a doctor, physiotherapist or occupational therapist and does not need anesthesia, because the needles are extremely thin and the application is done with precise techniques.
  • Generally, the person is lying on a stretcher for 20 to 40 minutes depending on the type of acupuncture and the indication of the treatment and at the end of the applications, the place where the needles were inserted is not painful.
