In her acupuncture practices, Leyla applies classical traditional eastern medicine which considers the patients as a whole where every symptom can be related to another.
The goal of this type of medicine is to help your body achieve from within which can balance and lead to the resolution of your symptoms. Acupuncture can also address emotional issues and help you break some cycle of behaviour. The treatment consists of more than just needling. It’s an alternative medicine that can provide pain relief techniques such as cupping, moxibustion, wet cupping, and microsystem laser therapy.
