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.
