Pain-Relieving Treatments

Acupuncture and trigger-point therapy to relieve pain

Pain-relieving treatment, also known as “pain therapy”, is a medical discipline that is concerned with treating patients affected by acute and chronic painful symptoms using natural therapeutic (non-pharmacological) methods, with the aim of markedly enhancing patients’ quality of life.

At the Hotel Savoia Thermæ & Spa, we seek out the best natural solution in the management of all types of pain, using techniques that form part of the array of reflex therapies.

Acupuncture for pain relief

Acupuncture is a type of pain-relieving therapy that involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body.
According to the theories of traditional Chinese medicine, there are twelve main channels, known as meridians, which extend vertically, bilaterally and symmetrically; every channel corresponds and connects internally to each of the twelve organs.

Pain represents a blockage and acupuncture acts to normalise the flow of the “qi”, the body’s “vital energy”.

Trigger-point therapy

This type of pain-relieving therapy takes it cue from the therapeutic technique of acupuncture.

Small injections of a physiological solution are made baby our medical specialist in trigger points, which are the areas subject to the greatest inflammation.

The liquid acts like a needle in an acupuncture session, detoxifying the treated area. This technique, too, can be used in the acute phase.
