Acupuncture

Acupuncture on the basis of traditional Chinese medicine is becoming an indispensable part of modern internal medicine and pain management. Acupuncture activates the body’s self-repair mechanisms and therefore promotes health.

Ear or by classical Chinese acupuncture can be used to treat a wide variety of diseases, especially those caused by impaired organ function. When structures or tissues are destroyed, e.g. severe osteoarthritis, acupuncture may only relieve symptoms. Neither acupuncture is able to dissolve gallstones or kidney stones nor can it heal broken bones, but it can take away the pain after an operation.
