Acupuncture techniques are much more than only needling. Against common belief, needling is just a small percentage of the art of acupuncture. Diagnosis is the first step toward any healing, and is the most important part of this amazing art. Every human being is a unique individual with his/her own special and unique diagnosis. No two headaches come from the same problem. We treat every individual, every pain and every disharmony in a unique treatment plan accordingly.

First, evaluation is the most important part of the treatment. To diagnose correctly, we get to know our patients. Treating and diagnosing the whole body means no physical imbalance or disease is separated from the emotional and spiritual part of human beings. We are a whole as a human, and our physical and emotional situations are completely dependent upon each other. We make sure to always diagnose the root of any problem; this is the most important tool toward any healing process.

We use different modalities and techniques, depending upon the individual.
