Acupuncture isn’t just about needles; it’s about reawakening your body’s balance. And in the hands of well-trained practitioners, acupuncture offers more than just pain relief. With every session, we aim to help you find harmony within, leading to lasting well-being and relief.
Acupuncture treats people in a balanced way
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese method of treatment where patients are pricked with needles at precisely defined points called acupoints. According to Chinese tradition, acupuncture points are determined by meridians representing the organs of the body. In the treatment of diseases, acupuncture needles are used to influence the currents along the meridians. The aim is to restore balance to the body.
Acupuncture is an effective treatment for many conditions. It is widely accepted in Western medicine as a treatment for many conditions. Acupuncture and traditional Chinese therapies provide relief for conditions such as acute and chronic pain, headaches, digestive problems and insomnia. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has compiled a list of conditions for which acupuncture has been found to be an effective treatment. In my practice, I treat conditions such as: neck and shoulder pain, back pain, headaches, migraines, dizziness, neurological and rheumatic pain, sciatica, menstrual and menopausal problems, insomnia, stress, weight loss and digestive problems (constipation, bloating, diarrhoea), circulatory problems, allergies and asthma.
The needles used in acupuncture are sterile and always disposable.
Acupuncture therapy is an effective treatment for many ailments, such as headaches and muscle pain. Meridian Care offers reliable acupuncture treatment in Helsinki.

Acupuncture for pregnancy, fertility and women’s health
Acupuncture is commonly used for women’s health, menopausal symptoms and pregnancy. Many people have found acupuncture helpful as a treatment to support fertility treatments. Meridian Care specialises in holistic and integrated care for women’s health. Our treatments aim to restore the body’s normal balance to promote menstrual and reproductive health and improve fertility.
The Meridian Care Way
At Meridian Care, treatments are tailored individually to identify and address the root cause of discomfort or issues. We combine tongue and pulse diagnosis, selecting the most suitable treatment methods to achieve effective results. Everyone has their own personalized treatment plan, even if the symptoms are identical.
Our trained experts in Chinese medicine and massage therapy administer treatments after listening and examining what your pulse and tongue have to say; they serve as windows into your internal organs. At the Meridian Care clinic, we treat people of all ages, from children to seniors, and of course, pregnant women as well.
In acupuncture treatments, the body’s acupoints are stimulated using thin, disposable, and sterile needles. Acupuncture can help alleviate a wide range of issues, from pain management, headaches, migraines, gastrointestinal issues, to treating stress, insomnia, and various male and female concerns.
