Acupuncture is a treatment method based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The practitioner inserts very thin needles in specific points (Acu-points) along energy pathways (meridians). The stimulation of these points helps to adjust and balance the flow of energy and restore health.
Electro-Acupuncture aims to stimulate the body’s healing processes by sending electrical impulses through the channels, muscles, and nerves. Electro-Acupuncture is most commonly associated with pain management as it promotes the release of neurotransmitters such as beta-endorphin, a natural analgesic (pain reducer).
Cosmetic acupuncture, sometimes dubbed the acupuncture facelift, is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It helps you attain beauty from the inside out. While cosmetic acupuncture is marketed as new, it first appeared in the Huangdi Neijing, a book written over 2,000 years ago.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has developed over more than 2000 years. It includes herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage (Tui Na), exercise (Qi Gong), and dietary therapy. Herbal medicine is one of the main branches of TCM.
