Kidney cysts refer to fluid-filled pockets on the kidney. They are often benign and do not any symptoms for patients. However, if left untreated, they may enlarge along with the time.

The doctor insert your skin by a long and thin needle to balance energy and qi in the body. It can slow down the renal cyst enlargement to some extent. Our special point of acupuncture is that we adopt the Chinese herbal medicine such as moxa.
