Acupuncture

In IMEDI we offer professional acupuncture treatments performer by a general practitioner and traditional Chinese medicine specialist dr Oyuna. Dr Oyuna has over three decades of experience.

Acupuncture is based on a theory that human body has its own vital energy called bioelectricity , which flows through 12 major energy channels (meridians) and 8 additional to all the internal organs.

The interruption of energy flow causes pains and different diseases. After a series of treatments it is possible to achieve balance in energy flow, and body works properly again.

However, from the scientific point of view the use of needles activates blood circulation in the capillaries. The cells begin to work more intensively, body is stimulated to fight the afflictions. Acupuncture alleviates pain, is healing and cleansing. Acupuncture has been recognized by international Health Organization (WHO) as a official treatment method.
