Acupuncture has its origins in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). It promises healing and relief for many complaints.

The acupuncturist develops his own diagnostic and therapeutic considerations based on an energetic view of the human being in the world.

During acupuncture, thin needles are inserted into specific points on the body. These points are called acupuncture points. The onset and duration of the effect depends on the patient's symptoms. In the case of an acute pain symptom treatment, an effect occurs within a few minutes or hours. With chronic pain conditions or very complex clinical pictures, the first treatment success is sometimes only seen after the fourth or fifth session.

How does acupuncture work?

Illness occurs when there is an imbalance between a person's inner energies and the outer energies around them, between Yin and Yang. Symptoms are the signal our body sends us when these energies are out of balance.

With the help of acupuncture, blockages can be released and the following effects can occur:

  • Regulation of muscle tension
  • Effect on the immune system
  • Stimulation of blood flow
  • Decongestant effect
  • Pain relief
