Acupuncture is a treatment derived from traditional Chinese medicine. Fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body for therapeutic purposes.
Medical acupuncture is the use of acupuncture based on a scientific medical diagnosis and treatment approach. It is a well-established and recognized medical treatment for many acute and chronic diseases, for physical health (pain, fertility, integrative oncology, weight loss) as well as mental health (anxiety, stress, burnout, depression).
Acupuncture is also used as an integrative medicine to support conventional treatment. Acupuncture provides a response to several public health challenges including the aging population, the rise in chronic illnesses and obesity-related conditions, that call for medication-free integrative medical care.
Acupuncture is painless, has no side-effects, no contraindications and is compatible with most drugs. And it is a very cost-effective medical treatment.

The acupuncture sessions helped a lot and I can honestly say that, even during the most restrictive part of the diet, it wasn’t that bad.
After 3 or 4 sessions my legs started to calm down and I was suddenly sleeping 3 to 4 hours in a row! After some further treatment, I reduced the medication. Acupuncture gave me back a quality of life; I wish I had heard about it sooner.
I continued, week after week, to progress in weight loss and, after about ten months of dieting, I lost about fifty kilograms! In short, I felt 20 years younger!
