Acupuncture is one of the most effective treatments for someone with musculoskeletal problems who does not want to take painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs all the time .
But acupuncture based on Traditional Chinese Medicine is so much more.
I practise Acupuncture usually along with Shiatsu in my treatments and I believe the combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine ancient knowledge, combined with the therapeutic touch of Shiatsu has remarkable effects on my clients bodies.
How does it work
Acupuncture is the basic therapeutic method of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Through the insertion of sterile single-use needles into various parts of the body, Acupuncture signals the body to improve its functions and activate the self-healing capacity inherent in all of us.
The body is considered as whole, in which mind, body and spirit work together to ensure health. All diseases are caused by some “blockage” in the channels / meridians through which the vital energy, Qi, flows.
The aim of Acupuncture is therefore the smooth circulation of Qi in the meridians, the strengthening of the body and ultimately total healing of the patient.
A typical Acupuncture session
Before we start acupuncture, I take a detailed case history, make a diagnosis with specific tools, such as an overview of the tongue, pulse, appearance, voice and palpation of the meridians of the client.
Each Acupuncture treatment lasts approximately 1 hour and the number of sessions required varies depending on the patient and treatment response.
In which cases is beneficial
Acupuncture balances the body , stimulates the immune system and activates the healing power of the body , so it can help with many issues such as:
- musculoskeletal or joint pain
- stomach and intestinal disturbances
- stress, insomnia, depression and other neurosis
- respiratory diseases
- circulatory system problems
- gynaecological problems
- is a useful aid for addiction to smoking, food or alcohol
You can take a look at UNESCO presentation on Acupuncture and Moxa Therapy, as therapeutic methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The treatments are offered in a wellness center @ Chalandri, Athens, 5 min. walk from a metro station.
