Acupuncture is a branch of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), 5000 years old. Word acupuncture origins from Latin words acus (needle) and pungere (puncture). Traditional Chinese medicine observes a man as a whole, therefore it does not treat only consequences, but attention is paid to the cause of the problem, i.e. disease. Which is exactly the advantage acupuncture has over other medical disciplines, it heals a disease through holistic approach but at the same time exerts positive effect on the whole organism providing uninterrupted flow of life energy, CHI. Precisely the standstill of the life energy in some of those acupunctural meridians is the very place of pain, i.e. place where a certain disease is localized. Acupuncture establishes a balance in the whole body, (balance between Jing and Jang), spiritual and physical balance. Natural way of treatment, without ingestion of any substances into the body makes an important advantage of acupuncture over other medical disciplines, unlike the modern methods of treatment by drugs (chemicals).
* The World Health Organization has acknowledged acupuncture as an equal medical discipline, which is administered in many European and World centers as a complementary branch. Therefore acupuncture, as such, is no longer alternative medicine in its way of acting, but it is alternative for its effects: it cures and heals many diseases where modern medicine is powerless.
Diseases which are commonly treated by acupuncture: Psychosomatic disorders (depression, insomnia); migraine, dizziness; pain in the spine, discus hernia, fibromyalgia, pain in the joints; sports accidents, aesthetic, cosmetology problems (wrinkles, cellulite ...).
* effect on acupuncture points can be performed by laser also.
