Practice for Traditional Oriental Medicine


Acupuncture has its base in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM); a profound oriental medical system which interprets the body in an energetic way. Acupuncture heals medical complaints, improves health and even has a preventive influence.

The acupuncturist has a holistic approach: not only the ailment will be treated, but the patient is viewed as a whole. Acupuncture centralises a diseased person in his environment, not the disease in itself.

How does an acupuncture treatment go?
During the first visit to the acupuncturist, you will be interviewed elaborately and your wrist, tongue and belly will be examined. After this, the therapist will treat you. The consultation lasts approximately one hour.
Do the needles hurt?
The needles are very thin and cannot be compared to thick injection needles. This is why at the very worst you will only feel a slight sting which will not last. The excitation of the Qi feeling is experienced as a tingling or tiny electric shock on the needle spot or in the course of the meridian.
