The ideal ally to treat many pathologies

Medical acupuncture treats numerous pathologies, diseases and psychophysical disorders.

For the treatment of serious diseases, integrative medical acupuncture ideally complements other therapeutic treatments, maximizing their benefits: relieving pain and combating insomnia, reducing nausea and vomiting.

Dermatological problems Dermatitis, acne, psoriasis, eczema, itching, redness, hives.
Allergic rhinitis

Chronic rhinitis, sinusitis, conjunctivitis, otitis, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), labyrinthitis and dizziness, bronchial asthma, chronic bronchitis, chronic nervous cough.

Symptoms due to an allergy: allergic rhinitis or allergic asthma, are inflammation of the nasal mucous membranes caused by different substances, such as dust mites, animal dander, mold spores, pollen.

Disorders related to female and male fertility

Worldwide, an increasing number of couples face infertility problems. The World Health Organization confirms that the number of couples suffering from infertility is around 48 million. The way we live compromises our body's ability to perform the elemental function of reproduction. 

Studies show that one in four Swiss suffer from low sperm count with reduced fertility. Sperm quality has decreased by 50% since 1960. 

Acupuncture, as a non-drug therapy, has been shown to improve sperm count on the one hand and ovulation on the other. In this way, fertility is stimulated, including by improving conditions of stress and anxiety, which make conception more difficult.


Gastritis, gastroesophageal reflux disease, nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain, functional dyspepsia, biliary colic, constipation, colitis, supportive treatment of Crohn's disease and ulcerative-hemorrhagic rectocolitis.

Tobacco and other addictions

Acupuncture relieves withdrawal symptoms by stimulating endogenous production of endorphins (neurotransmitters endowed with morphine-like analgesic properties); this may partly explain the treatment's effectiveness for opiate withdrawal symptoms.

Otolaryngology and respiratory tract disorders Among such disorders, the most common ones are infections, such as colds, rhinitis, sinusitis and pharyngitis, very frequently accompanied and promoted by chronic nasal obstructions of various etiology.
Circulatory disorders Acupuncture significantly improves peripheral blood flow. In addition, it is very effective in people suffering from low blood pressure, responds well to cases of labile hypertension (i.e., when pressure rises but then returns to normal), and early-stage hypertension.
Musculoskeletal disorders

In the musculoskeletal field, the evidence for the effectiveness of acupuncture is now recognized. Indications are numerous and range from low back and neck pain, to knee osteoarthritis, epicondylitis, and shoulder periarthritis, just to name the main ones.

But even "delicate" situations such as lower back pain in pregnancy find acupuncture an effective and risk-free treatment.

Woman (age 65)

After more than 10 years of various attempts, no one could find the cause of my persistent and very annoying thigh pain. After two months of acupuncture instead, the pain began to subside and by the third month it was completely gone. It didn't seem real to me that I could go back to doing the simplest things like walking without pain. I continued with maintenance sessions, and after 3 years I continue to have no pain.

Woman (age 63)

After an initial operation on my right hip, I underwent a series of other operations always on the same leg, after which the pains became chronic. I was skeptical, not believing that acupuncture could help, but I had to change my mind: after several sessions my life improved by 80%! Try it to believe!

Woman (age 55)

After an MRI, I was diagnosed with early osteoarthritis. After 8 weeks of acupuncture I began to see improvement; today the pain is not gone, but it is completely bearable! Acupuncture has been decisive for me in many ways and I will continue to undergo monthly sessions; it is money well spent!

Woman (age 71)

I started acupuncture sessions for severe knee and sciatic nerve pain. After two and a half months I have no more pain! Thank you very much!

Woman (age 79)

At first I was just curious. Over time, my curiosity turned into confidence in the treatment, as in 5 months my back stopped hurting and I lost 14 kg!

Thanks to acupuncture and my willpower, I sleep more peacefully, resumed my activities with more energy and zest for life!

Woman (age 45)

I am Veronica, and I have been going through a tough battle with an oncological disease that has caused me to weigh 130 pounds. For 13 years, I lived with a body that I didn't feel was mine and that I couldn't love. Then, I decided to take matters into my own hands by starting a DIY diet. After losing the first 10 kg, however, I found myself at a standstill: despite my efforts, I was no longer losing weight. At that point, I turned to Sinomedica in Lugano, where Dr. Raymond Landgraaf followed me with great care and gentleness. Over the course of two years, I weighed 57 kg and completed my journey with surgery to remove the excess skin on my abdomen. Today, I can maintain my weight and I am happy. I look at my reflection in the mirror with tenderness and love, feeling deep gratitude and pride for the path I have traveled. It has been a difficult path, but acupuncture has supported me tremendously, helping me rebalance the hormonal imbalances that were hindering weight loss. Mine is a story of redemption and inner strength.
