Acupuncture is an independent form of therapy within a diverse range of concepts according to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). After a detailed survey of the patient's medical history according to TCM criteria, pulse and tongue diagnostics, a therapy plan is developed and discussed with the patient and/or parents. In most cases, an allopathic diagnosis is required or an extended evaluation is carried out.

Acupuncture is applied by means of needles, possibly ultrafine needles, or by laser, which is usually used for small children or at very sensitive points.
