Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which also includes dietetics, pharmacopoeia (herbology), exercises (Qi Gong) and massage (Tui Na).

Besides aiming for the long-term disappearing of symptoms and soothing of pain, the personalized and global approach of acupuncture helps identify the underlying causes for health problems (stress, emotions, traumatisms, life hygiene and environmental factors).

Everyone does not necessarily have the same symptoms for the same illness. That is why Traditional Chinese Medicine does not address symptoms one by one, but rather takes into account the unique characteristics of each person, namely heredity and background, so as to offer personalized treatment.

The concept of Yin-Yang equilibrium might appear archaic or exotic, yet it corresponds to occidental medicine's functional balance of the human body systems, of the nervous system (sympathetic and parasympathetic), of the acid-base “pH”  balance and of the immune and homeostatic potential.

Even today, the acupuncturist analyzes and treats “modern” illnesses according to ancient texts, on the basis of principles that have stood the test of time.
