An acupuncture center opened by Koreans in Abuja is set to bring more succor to Nigerians by addressing all complications of a stroke, muscle fatigue, and stimulating their immune systems.

One of the doctors at the center, Kim Yun Hak, who is an expert in acupuncture therapy, said he has been practicing all aspects of muscle stretching for over a decade in his field as a specialist.

Mr Hak said that acupuncture is seamlessly blending with contemporary technology and has regained its popularity.

He mentioned that there is even an acupuncture school at one of the world’s most prestigious universities in Asia and Europe, where experts attend and learn to practice in their respective dialects.

Coming to Nigeria, the Koreans feel that the center is going to help most people suffering from stroke and muscle-related problems.

And, despite the fact that they do not speak fluent English, they are able to understand and diagnose all of the ailments that people suffer in their bodies, as well as treat them.

Most modern acupuncturists use disposable stainless steel needles of fine diameter (0.007 to 0.020 in (0.18 to 0.51 mm)), sterilized with ethylene oxide or by autoclave.

These needles are far smaller in diameter (and therefore less painful) than hypodermic injection needles since they do not have to be hollow for purposes of injection, the doctor says.

From all indications, huge numbers of Nigerians who before now traveled to some parts of the world like India, China, and the UK in search of these centers and hospitals may find it easier to settle at home and get treated.

Statistics show that between 2021 and 2022 alone, more than 47 percent of all visas to India and the UK from Nigeria were for medical tourism, and Nigerians spent over $400 million on medical expenses out there.

So, with this development by Koreans in Nigeria, people will find it easier to visit the center and be treated.

Such involvement from foreign experts and specialists in Nigeria’s healthcare delivery is gradually increasing for the betterment of Nigerians.
