Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and has been used for more than two thousand years in China for medical treatments.

What is acupuncture?

During acupuncture, thin disposable Acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points on the body in order to regulate or improve the flow of your energetic potential (qì) along the meridians.

According to TCM, qì flows in an energetic network of meridians (also called channels) that connects not only the different Acupuncture points, but also the internal organs. The needling of a specific Acupuncture point with a metal needle allowed to influence the qì in the body and its modulation. The aim of Acupuncture treatment is to remove existing blockages, strengthen the flow of qì or guide out morbid qì from the body. Diseases and pain are mainly produced when the flow of qì is impaired.

How does Acupuncture work?

Nowadays, the success of Acupuncture is well understood. Acupuncture has proven to be highly effective in the treatment of various clinical patterns. These range from stress-related symptoms of all kinds, discomfort and pain in musculoskeletal system to gynecological disorders and skin diseases.

How does Acupuncture feel like?

Acupuncture is not like a conventional injection. Acupuncture is performed with ultra-fine stainless steel needles and it usually does not hurt. Most patients feel some heaviness, numbness or warmth around the point, or a slight radiation of heat along the meridian, followed by a feeling of relaxation.

What is to be expected from acupuncture?

My philosophy is to enhance your health as quickly as possible and to assist you in your recovery in the most efficient way.

What types of Acupuncture do I perform in my practice?

Classical body acupuncture

The traditional way of Acupuncture is usually done by Traditional Chinese Acupuncture, the so-called Classical Body Acupuncture. Classical Body Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through the patient’s skin at specific points throughout the whole body. Nowadays, body Acupuncture is very well researched and its effectiveness has been proven many times.

Electro acupuncture

Electro Acupuncture is a very effective way of Acupuncture because Acupuncture points are stimulated by low frequency electricity. This method is suitable in pain management.

Pain-free acupuncture techniques

In order to offer Acupuncture to my pain-sensitive patients and children, I have been trained in alternative, gentle Acupuncture techniques. In China, I studied abdominal Acupuncture (Turtle Acupuncture according to Prof. Bo Zhiyun and BaKuo), which is performed on the abdomen. Furthermore, I have been studying Japanese Acupuncture techniques and meridian therapy according to Shudo Denmei, which is a particularly gentle and effective Acupuncture technique.

Abdominal Acupuncture

As mentioned before, besides the classical body Acupuncture I use abdominal Acupuncture forms, such as „Turtle Acupuncture“ by Professor Bo Zhiyun and „Bakuo„, which were established after long-term research in China. These forms of Acupuncture are performed on the abdomen and are pain-free, so they are usually well tolerated by sensitive patients.

Laser Acupuncture and Japanese Acupuncture

Laser Acupuncture is completely performed without metal needles and instead uses laser light. Laser Acupuncture can reduce pain, accelerate wound healing and reduce inflammation. Japanese Acupuncture uses much finer needles that are very lightly inserted into the skin. The insertion and the needles themselves are hardly noticeable by the patient.

Laser Acupuncture and Japanese Acupuncture are modern Acupuncture methods, which provide a particularly gentle and completely pain-free alternative to conventional body acupuncture. These methods are applicable especially in patients who are very sensitive to pain and also in children.

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture can help to restore the natural balance in the energy system of internal organs. When this imbalance is corrected your complexion and your skin elasticity can be improved. Your skin will also have a more shiny glow and wrinkles will disappear.

Miscellaneous:

Many problems, especially those with internal diseases, gynecological and dermatological disorders cannot be treated without Chinese herbal medicine. According to my experience, the most effective way in relieving your symptoms is usually the combination of Acupuncture and Chinese herbs.
