Homeopathy is a system founded by Dr. Samuel Hahemann in Germany. The universal law ‘SimiliaSimimlibusCurentur’ is the natural law which homeopathy embraced ever since Hahnemann established it in 1796. Today it has gained popularity throughout the world.

Accupuncture



Acupuncture is a technique of inserting and manipulating fine filiform needles into specific points on the body to relieve pain or for therapeutic purposes. The word acupuncture comes from the Lain acts, "needle", and pungent, "to prick"


According to traditional Chinese medical theory, acupuncture points are situated on meridians along which qi, the vital energy, flows. The World Health Organization published a review of controlled trials using acupuncture and concluded it was effective for the treatment of 28 conditions and there was evidence to suggest it may be effective for several dozens more. Additionally, the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the American Medical Association (AMA) and various government reports have studied and commented on the efficacy (or lack thereof) of acupuncture
