Acupuncture is a treatment based on Traditional Chinese medicine and the acupuncture meridians. It takes a different approach to standard western medicine and treats the body as a whole.
The Chinese view health and sickness in terms of "vital energy" and energetic balance and imbalance.
Acupuncturists assess the flow and distribution of this "vital energy" which is also referred to as "chi" through energy pathways or meridians that run throughout the body.
These acupuncture meridians were discovered more than 5,000 years ago and each meridian is associated with a different organ.
The energy meridians running through your body can become unbalanced or blocked through stress, diet and other lifestyle and environmental factors.
Acupuncturists stimulate the meridians with a fine needle to help unblock these energy disruptions and bring your body back into balance.
Acupuncture is said to help with all sorts of conditions such as:
- the common cold and sinusitis
- migraines and tension headaches
- pain including tennis elbow and back/neck pain
- weight loss
- cigarette and alcohol addiction
Meridian health is an important factor in achieving and maintaining overall health and wellbeing so if life is too busy back home, why not schedule an appointment while you're on holidays in Malta.
It really doesn't hurt and, as you can see from the above list, it helps with a lot of conditions.
You can make an appointment at The Mediterranean Centre for Chinese Medicine on (+356) 2169-1799.
