SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital runs this private Acupuncture Unit, which is a pioneering centre in the application of different techniques for patients who request it. We offer treatment to children, adults and, specifically, to women who have pregnancy or gynaecological problems and are receiving obstetrical and gynaecological treatment.
Acupuncture is a technique of traditional Chinese medicine that consists of stimulating certain points with fine needles, massage or moxibustion. The aim is to alleviate the symptoms of some diseases or conditions, to favour the optimal functioning of the body and to increase the patient's well-being.
The specific points that are stimulated through acupuncture are located close to the surface of the skin. In this way, certain physiological processes are activated in order to reduce pain or improve the patient's quality of life.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has confirmed, after conducting several clinical trials, that certain practices may be effective in relieving pain. For this reason, acupuncture is currently recognised as part of a set of techniques grouped under the name of integrative medicine, either as a treatment on its own or as a complement to other treatments.
