Acupuncture is an essential component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It involves influencing the flow of energy in the meridians using sterile, hair-thin needles. Additionally, acupuncture can affect the internal organs as they are interconnected with the meridians. Its effectiveness is based on millennia of experience, and it is applied to a wide range of conditions such as pain (headaches, backaches, joint pain), tinnitus, fatigue, burnout or depression, menstrual problems, allergies, and gastrointestinal issues. A detailed list of indications can be found below.

Through Auriculomedicine (ear acupuncture) and acupuncture according to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), many ailments or illnesses can be successfully treated.
