about Improvitas

Our clinic specializes in Traditional East Asian Medicine (TEAM) which is also generally called as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) or, essentially, just as acupuncture

Jelena Goldstein is a International Acupuncture Doctor, TCM practitioner, herbalist and a specialist in various traditional TCM therapy forms (such as moxibustion, guasha , tuina, cupping therapy, etc), after completing her BSc. in English Philology, at Latvia’s State University, her further studies in Psychology at Moscow Institute of Social Sciences in 2003, as well as Biomedicine in Axelsons Gymnastiska Institute, Jelena went on to study Traditional Chinese Medicine at Acupuncture Academy in Stockholm.

As a physician committed to the integration of all safe and effective treatments into a medicine for the whole person, the Chinese perspective on health and illness is invaluable, and I welcome all attempts to make it accessible and effective.

Reviews of Improvitas

See how they write about us and sign up for a visit!
  • I was a bit nervous about needles, but I must say I felt perfectly relaxed throughout the entire treatment. The main thing of course is that it helps and so far, it has reduced my pain significantly, and without any drugs.
  • Wonderful environment for treatment, relaxing and calm more like a spa than a clinic, and Jelena kept me at ease the whole time. I was sceptical at first, don't really like needles, but after only two treatments I saw results and actually started to look forward to the visits.
  • I have had acupuncture previously, so totally comfortable with needles. The Guasha, however, was very intense and nothing prepares you for the bruises! But this treatment was actually the most effective, as my back pain was virtually gone, and I had higher energy levels. I suppose I don't need to understand how and why it works if it actually works! Highlyrecommended.
  • Improvitas klinik är mer en oas där jag kan koppla av och veta att jag kommer att må bättre efter att ha Jelena behandling. Hon erbjuder flera olika behandlingsmetoder och verkligen riktar ditt problem, till skillnad från en-storlek-passar-alla strategi där du får rusade in och ut.
  • Hon tar hela tiden hon anser vara nödvändiga (ibland upp till två timmar!) För att behandla problemet. Mycket professionell, kunnig och omtänksam
