Treatments offered by the clinic aim to both cause the quick disappearance of symptoms felt by the patient and to treat the underlying causes of these symptoms. A single session may be enough to treat a recent and acute problem, while a greater number of sessions may be necessary to treat a chronic and complex problem. A patient’s physical condition, his or her age as well as his or lifestyle habits can greatly influence the treatment’s evolution. It’s always important to identify and treat the causes, which lead to the appearance of symptoms, in order to understand their onset mechanisms and to avoid their recurrence.
Acupuncture is the most widespread branch of traditional Chinese medicine in the world. It consists of the insertion of thin needles into specific points in the body, aiming to eliminate the energetic malfunction causing the unease felt by the patient.
Tuina is another branch of traditional Chinese medicine, made up of a combination of massage techniques and movements and aiming, like acupuncture, to re-establish the body’s energetic balance. Tuina is used to complement acupuncture treatments in fostering the release of physical and energetic blockages.
Qi Gong is a practice based in deep breathing and slow movements, which aims to re-establish and strengthen the body’s energetic balance. Qi Gong allows one to both develop an acute consciousness of the body and to attain a calm and balanced state of mind. Qi Gong movements are used to allow the patient to further pursue the energetic work undertaken during an acupuncture treatment.
