Agopuntura

Acupuncture is a prescientific medical system developed in China over 3000 years ago and still in use in China and western countries.

According to this medical model, everything in our body and in the universe is energy.
Acupuncture point is exactly the zone in our body surface where energy emerges and becomes manipulative. Stimulating these areas helps to act on the energy flow within ducts both locally and at a distance, on the surface and deeply.
From a western modern point of view, acupuncture proves to stimulate the secretion of endorphins, by controlling pain, increasing cortisol rate and showing an anti-inflammatory effect. Therefore, Acupuncture remains a technique that unveils verifiable and repeatable results.
