The Acupuncture service offered by Salut Empordà Healthcare brings together conventional Western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine, to produce a form of integrative medicine that combines the best of both disciplines providing patients with many benefits.
This is a complementary service developed by medical professionals who are also university-level professors of acupuncture, the only discipline backed by scientific evidence and endorsed by the World Health Organisation (WHO) for some illnesses.
Integrative medicine at this centre is combined with traditional Western medicine, offered in collaboration with other specialities (nephrology, oncology and the pain management clinic, as well as others).
In acupuncture, strategic points along energy meridians of the body are punctured to harmonise the body, mind and spirit and improve the patient's state of health. It works by improving and in some cases resolving energy imbalances in the body which can lead to illness. This practice can be used for treating all kinds of pain and a long list of varied ailments. Acupuncture is indicated in the prevention and treatment of gastrointestinal problems (functional ones in particular), urinary problems, gynaecological issues, infertility, imbalances in pregnancy, menopausal symptoms, respiratory problems, mood swings, stress, insomnia, high blood pressure and skin conditions, amongst others.
