Acupuncture sessions for the post-surgical recovery of FACIALTEAM patients

October 1, 2015

The World Health Organization (WHO) has approved the use of acupuncture as an adjuvant therapy in post-surgical recovery

 

For our patients, the goals of this therapy are adapted to their postoperative circumstances: to reduce inflammation, to reduce pain, to reduce stress and to improve sleep quality for better relaxation.

The strategy of the therapy is twofold:

 

  1. We want to regulate the energy meridians that go up the head and then come down in order to balance the flow of energy, blood and liquids between the head and the rest of the body that are blocked after an operation, affecting postoperative oedemas and inflammation.
  2. We want to increase the level of endorphins in the blood, as they are natural substances produced by the organism with analgesic and other beneficial effects. We stimulate the skin fibres of the autonomic nervous system, which have the effect of vascular and lymphatic regulation, helping to reabsorb oedemas and inflammation. The higher cerebral centres are also activated, reducing post-surgical stress, increasing psychic and physical relaxation and providing a healing sleep.

 

What the therapy is like:

We use different techniques that complement each other: auriculotherapy, acupuncture, electroacupuncture and laser acupuncture.

 


 The calibre of the needles is very fine, the puncture is practically painless and the therapy is relaxing, creating that sense of well-being that is so necessary during the days following surgery
