Medical Acupuncture

 

The most ancient modern applied therapeutic method with a history of 5,000 years. It is based on the theory that the initial Qi energy we inherit from our parents is circulated on specific pathways (meridians) along our body. By inserting special sterilized needles into specific parts of these meridians (head, body, upper and lower limbs and ears) qi is redistributed based on the needs of the organism and according to the therapeutic protocols the expected therapeutic result is thus achieved.

“Acupuncture could be used as a valuable alternative treatment for many diseases or conditions for which modern traditional therapies are unsuccessful. It is also valuable in cases where the patient is afraid of the possible dangers or adverse effects of modern conventional therapies. In fact, in some developed countries, diseases for which patients seek help from acupuncturists tend to be beyond the field of orthodox medicine.”

Bio-coordination

WHAT IS IT?;
Bio-coordination is based on the principles of quantum physics and on the theory that each material body is a concentrated form of energy that determines chemical-material processes. The bio-coordination method uses a special device, which records the body’s electromagnetic signals and, based on its biological filter, it separates the healthy (normal) signals from the distorted ones.

WHY BIO-COORDINATION? (ADVANTAGES)
• Bio-coordination offers a more personalized approach to the patient, taking into account the underlying causes of their disease development
• Regarding chronic diseases that remain of unknown cause for the conventional medicine, it often manages to even eradicate them
• It can be applied to all ages
• It is a painless and completely harmless practice (used for 25 years without side effects)
• As a complementary method, it can be combined with both methods of “traditional” medical treatment and “alternative” methods such as homeopathy, acupuncture, reflexology, etc.
• In some cases it works as processing aids, while in others it can offer a permanent cure. Surprising results are quite often achieved where other methods or medications have had no success or offered only light relief
• Three to four bio-coordination visits equate to 15-20 physiotherapy sessions

WHERE IS IT USED?
The range of bio-coordination applications is quite large. In particular, it is used for:

• Allergies, in any clinical form
• Spastic colitis
• Inflammatory bowel diseases (Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis), chronic diarrhoea or constipation
• Autoimmune diseases (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis)
• Migraines
• Hypertension or hypotension, tachycardia
• Obesity
• Various cases of pain (musculoskeletal, waist, cervical syndrome, arthritis, neuropathies, menopause pains, athletic injuries)
• Chronic Fatigue Syndrome etc
• Fracture healing and rapid restoration of limb mobility after cast removal.
