Acupunture

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) date back to the Before Christ era. The historiographical reliability brings us back to 776 BC. The many revisions occurred in the centuries have formed the corpus of TCM as we know it today.
Acupuncture is the stimulation of the many acupoints located on our skin surface, through the insertion and manipulation of extra-fine needles. Nowadays, these needles are usually sterile and disposable.

Acupuncture is a form of energy medicine. The wisdom of over 3,000 years contained in acupuncture was confirmed by Einstein, with his theory of relativity, E = mc², through which he demonstrated how material and energy are the same thing, and how they can be transformed one into another. This indicates that the correct energy balance in our organism, and that between it and the surrounding environment are critical in order to achieve a good state of health. Disease is represented by a defect or an excess of energy of a single organ or the whole human organism. This medical technique seeks to re-balance our energy, our bio-humoral rhythms and our immune system.

Acupuncture has been recently introduced into the Western world, initially for the pain treatment of the osteo-muscular system, with rheumatic or traumatic origins.
In 1991, the World Health Organization (WHO) recognized the therapeutic value of acupuncture for the treatment of many diseases. In Italy, only Doctors in Medicine and Surgery, members of the appropriate Professional Association, are able to practice acupuncture. Most of the schools adhere to F.I.S.A. (Italian Federation of Acupuncture Societies).
