Definitions of Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient technique of traditional Chinese medicine that involves the introduction of special needles at specific points called energy resonators to restore health.

Acupuncture is a holistic medicine that works through the knowledge of the energetic origin of the symptoms to balance the different excesses and deficiencies in the organs, senses and emotions that the disease causes to recover health.

Special needles in acupuncture are introduced according to forms, points and set of coherent points in order to maintain the emotional, functional and organic harmony of the individual.

The energy points or resonators in acupuncture fulfill a specific function whose knowledge comes from the relationship of our whole body with the five elements: water, wood, fire, earth and metal.

According to traditional Chinese medicine, each organ corresponds to an element. With this knowledge together with the patient’s symptoms, the acupuncture professional can diagnose the incidence of a specific element in the face of the health problem and thus apply the points that concern that diagnosis for its treatment.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has evidently certified the cure of more than 46 types of diseases with acupuncture.
