Acupuncture is a therapy of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). The purpose is to balance energy or Qi (Chi) circulates through the body via the meridians
This discipline, practical arises in China about 5000 years ago by stimulating the body's ability to resist or overcome disease by correcting imbalances. It also helps the body produce chemicals that reduce or eliminate painful sensations.
There are hundreds of acupuncture points (called acu-points) along the 14 major meridians, or pathways that lead the body. Chinese physicians of the sixteenth century used the term "Qi" (pronounced "chi") to describe the energy that circulates through the meridians. They believed that diseases are caused by an interruption of Qi, causing an imbalance of energy. Acupuncture can correct this imbalance.
Some Treatments: Cellulite, orange peel, Thighs and Abdomen reduction, reduces expression lines, reduces and closes the pores, minimizes the chin.
The combination of Acupuncture and beauty is of recent development in the West. It is, in practice, an extension to the aesthetics of a therapeutic form that saw the light in ancient China. In recent times people are more aware and convinced of a better aesthetic appearance. The beauty is an essential component for living in society today. There is a method to stretch the skin that requires no points, no pain or swelling, or forcing patients to spend some time hiding from the world. Because it is not surgery. Already a large number and growing power of acupuncturists say remove the finest lines and marks of the years with the needles of this extraordinary science China.
