How does it work?

Different techniques may be used during an acupuncture session. The main technique consists in inserting very thin needles in the body or applying a LASER at specific points of the body in order to:

  • activate the self-healing (immune and homeostatic systems) and pain-relieving resources of the patient (endorphins, serotonin, adenosine, enkephalin);
  • help restore the body’s systems (immune, nervous, hormonal, visceral and muscular) normal functions;
  • create a natural relaxation state by increasing serotonin, which reduces stress and state of emergency;
  • reduce tension and muscular spasms by initiating vasodilatation and deactivation of dysfunctional neuromuscular junction;
  • promote tissue repair.

Despite the many benefits of acupuncture for many problems, it does not cure severe illnesses such as cancer, heart diseases and AIDS.
