ACUPUNTURA URBANA (Urban Acupuncture – AU) is a social business that transforms human relations through collective spaces.
Acupuncture, because our needle is affection. Urban, because we co-exist with all the beauties and challenges of the city.
We work to awaken every individual’s potential for building their own reality.
WHO WE ARE
