My name is Juho Sammalkorpi, and I’m a Helsinki based practitioner of acupuncture and chinese medicine. The purpose of my work is to help people find solutions to chronic pain and longstanding health problems. I speak fluent english.
Chinese medicine is based on over 2000 years of written history, and it’s one of the oldest systems of health care in the world. In china it’s used in parallel with western medicine in the health care system and it’s also being taught at the university level. In the rest of the world the use of acupuncture and chinese medicine is constantly increasing.
According to the latest research on pain it’s starting to be understood that the reason for chronic pain is often due to a functional problem of the nervous system. I use an acupuncture method which is based on normalizing the nervous system and therefore can treat the pain at the root level. This method can be used to treat even difficult cases and it’s effects are often seen very quickly.
The effects of acupuncture are not limited to treating pain only. Via the nervous system, acupuncture affects also organ function, metabolism and stress. Because of this, acupuncture can be used to treat many kinds of health chronic problems. In treating these types of issues there is often a component of dietary advice or nutritional supplements integrated into the treatment plan.
