Since 1979 World Health Organization (WHO) experts have recommended acupuncture for over 40 ailments, especially for ailments of the musculoskeletal system (spinal column syndrome, joint pains) as well as headaches and migraines. Acupuncture has become indispensable in pain therapy and the treatment of chronic illnesses.

Precise acupuncture stimuli block the transmission of pain signals at the spinal cord level from ever reaching the brain. In addition, various centers in the brain are stimulated to flood the body with mood-enhancing, pain-ameliorating and inflammation-inhibiting hormones. According to the latest findings, acupuncture promotes the regeneration of damaged tissues through immunological mechanisms. Expertly administered acupuncture is practically free of side effects. Each acupuncture session takes 20 minutes. A course of treatment involves between 6-15 sessions.
