Is spondylitis curable by acupuncture

Acupuncture is a treatment method that was developed in China about 5000 years ago. According to tradition, a warrior was hit by an arrow at that time. This injury cured a chronic illness from which he had previously suffered for several years. Based on this experience, the Chinese doctors began to research this phenomenon. As a result, over 360 specific acupuncture points were defined on the human body, each with its own effect.

At the beginning of the last century acupuncture came to Europe and gradually became a recognized therapeutic agent. The effectiveness of acupuncture has been proven in several Germany-wide studies.

Today acupuncture is an established therapy concept and we use it as an important pillar of therapy.
