Acupuncture (acupuncture) is a method of curative and preventive systemic influence on the human body with special needles that are introduced into the most sensitive areas of the skin and underlying tissues.
This method has passed the test of time and has not lost its significance at the present time.
Meridians are invisible channels that provide energy flows in the human body. There are 14 meridians on which biologically active points or so-called acupuncture points are located.While the organism is in a state of well-being the energy along the meridians circulates unhindered. When the body’s functions are disturbed, the energy can not fully circulate through the channels, and the person will feel tired or exhausted.
The price is 300 UAH.
Duration of the procedure is 20-40 minutes.
The course of treatment is 2-10 procedures.
In traditional Chinese medicine the yin-yang theory is fundamental. Harmonic interaction, i.e. balance, the main substances of the body Yin and Yang is a comfortable state of body and a sense of health. Yin and Yang can not function without each other in spite of their complete opposite: Yin is cold, dark, depressed, sluggish. Jan is warmth, light, mobility, speed, etc. All living things consist of Yin and Yang.
If one substance is weakened, the other is excessively strengthened. Thus, the imbalance or balance between Yin and Yang leads to the development of a disease.
According to traditional medicine doctors data, there are two opposite pathological conditions:
– syu (predominance of Yin – state of weakness or decrease in function):
– shea (predominance of Yang – the state of tension, increase of function).
With lowered functions it is necessary to “add”, strengthen functions, and with elevated functions it is necessary to “take away”, weaken them. For example, with various pain syndromes – “excess function”, and with flaccid paralysis or paresis is a “lack of function”.
Forming balance between Yin and Yang is the main goal of reflexotherapy.
Thus, two main therapeutic methods of acupuncture are distinguished: exciting or tonic, and inhibitory or sedative.
With acupuncture, needles with a length of 10 mm or more and a diameter of 0.15 mm or more, are used. Needles at the acupuncture points are set according to the rules of ancient Chinese medicine. Of great importance is the depth of the introduction of needles, the direction of administration, time, methods of setting and extraction of needles. there are techniques of minimally traumatic introduction of needles.
The rate of acupuncture is from 3 to 12-15 sessions,
the duration of the procedure is 15-60 min.
Due to the influence of needles the correct energy production is transformed, correspondingly, the organ connected to a certain meridian restores its functioning (with the influence on biologically active points, acupuncture points). Accordingly, important biologically active substances are developed and that regulates the vital activity of each specific organ and the whole organism is stimulated.
Aurikulopunktura is an impact with the help of needles on acupuncture points, located on the auricle. According to the canons of Chinese medicine, the auricle is closely connected with all the internal organs of the human body: both with the help of energy meridians (almost all meridians pass through the auricle), and in connection with the rich innervation of the ear region.
