THERAPY Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine, along with other traditional medicines, sees the human being in an integrated and holistic way in full harmony with Nature. A view beyond the measurable or quantifiable. An integrated set of sensations and discoveries that aim to establish a balanced flow of Qi (energy). It encompasses acupuncture to restore energy flow, moxibustion (therapy with heat application), cupping, Chinese dietetic therapy, Tui-Na massage, phytotherapy and QiGong (mind-body therapy involving breathing concentration and movement). With Traditional Chinese Medicine we can achieve significant improvements in the treatment of physical or emotional pain, physical or mental fatigue, reduction of symptoms of autoimmune diseases, gastrointestinal problems, respiratory system affections (sinusitis, rhinitis, constipation), musculoskeletal problems, etc.
