At Hostafrancs Medical Center we offer acupuncture and auriculotherapy treatments.
What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture consists of the insertion of fine needles in the skin, in certain strategic points of the body. Consequently, the goal is to improve the discomfort of a wide range of diseases. Acupuncture has its origin in traditional Chinese medicine. Nowadays it is a very common therapy, demonstrating in fact very effective to alleviate the pain of certain pathologies. In addition, it is recommended for the relaxation of the nervous system, the regulation of general and alimentary anxiety, and the activation of functions of the organism. Such as circulation, digestion, drainage, diuresis and metabolism.
The Auriculomedicine or Auriculotherapy is the treatment of pathologies and corporal or psychic dysfunctions through the stimulation or dispersion of reflex points existing in the ear or auricle. In fact, it is a very effective therapy when all the organs and functions of the body are projected in the ear. Auriculomedicine is effective in the treatment of pain, but also against stress or when you want to lose weight.
These therapies do not have, in general, contraindications and are a safe procedure. However, it is very important that the techniques always are performed by a professional with training in these procedures. It is also convenient that the professional who makes the therapy is also a doctor, in this way he/she can identify discomforts that may be symptoms of more serious or undiagnosed problems before you start acupuncture.
For that reason, at Hostafrancs Medical Center, acupuncture specialists are also doctors in Medicine and Surgery. In summary, Acupuncture offers results in a medium term. In addition, it has the advantage of being an alternative to medication in some cases and the side effects of these are avoided.
