Traditional Chinese doctors believe that on the body there are special points which are responsible for physical and also mental health. Nowadays it is hard to astonish somebody by using thin, sharp needles inserted in these points. As well as in old China, current specialists are assured that it is an excellent way to direct energy Qi into the healthy flow.
For those who suffer from the chronic pain, we propose electroacupuncture. It shows a strict resemblance towards acupuncture but is a bit different. In case of electroacupuncture the needles inserted in the point on the body are attached to a special device to generate electric impulses. As many of our patients who came with the long-lasting pain attacking them during the months claimed, acupuncture treatment helped to remove the acute and chronic conditions.
