With its origins in traditional Chinese medicine, Acupuncture is often overlooked in the world modern of medicine. Yet, its benefits to a wide number of medical and mental health issues are undeniable. Its most common use is to alleviate pain and migraine headaches, as well as and neurological and medical conditions. However, its uses extend to the treatment of psychiatric illness also.

What is the theory behind Acupuncture?

Traditionally, it was believed that Acupuncture restores the flow of energy (chi) throughout the body, and by doing so treats or prevents illness. Scientifically, we know that pain-relieving substances such as endorphins are released during the treatment, and that much of the benefits felt will come from this process.

Why would I choose Acupuncture?

Euromed can offer Acupuncture as an alternate and beneficial therapy option, which can be combined with other treatments, or when other options are ineffective.
