Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese technique that has been used in the east for more than 2,000 years to treat all kinds of pathology. According to the principles that inspired this technique, physical health is nothing but a reflection of the emotional state of the patient, which is what affects the function of the individual organs. Today, the international scientific community has welcomed and promoted this discipline as part of medical science, and many scientific studies have confirmed its effectiveness.

Its therapeutic action has been proven in the treatment of:

  • Couples Infertility
  • Pathologies of the male and female reproductive system
  • Osteoarticular pathologies
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety-related syndromes and stress-related disorders
  • Quitting smoking

A therapeutic cycle consists of 8 to 10 sessions, to be performed 1 or 2 times a week. In some cases it may be useful to go for some follow up sessions.

 

Phytotherapy

Therapeutic use of medicinal plants was already known in ancient Egypt and can be found in eastern medical texts dating back over 2000 years. Phytotherapy refers to the cure and prevention of diseases through the administration of extracts from parts of plants including as roots, flowers or fruits.

These extracts contain pharmacologically active substances that may require a medical opinion and a prescription for their proper use. In fact, they are compounds that can interact with other drugs or may need to be manufactured for proper administration.
