TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE
Acupuncture works through a multitude of points on the body. By stimulating these points, the therapist is able to harmonize the Qi (life force) of the client and thus initiate recovery. This stimulation can be done with needles, moxa (warming) or acupressure. The excellent effect of acupuncture is well known in the treatment of pain, even in cases of chronic processes that have already existed for some time, such as migraine headaches or joint problems.
The WHO recommends acupuncture for neurological diseases, complaints of the digestive system and the lungs and bronchi.
In my experience, acupuncture is also successful in the treatment of allergies, states of exhaustion or in restoring emotional balance. For a complete list of indications, please refer to the section on areas of application.
I perform acupuncture treatment after a thorough diagnosis based on the principles of Chinese medicine and a thorough recording of your medical history.

Treatment for children
Shonishin is a non-invasive form of acupuncture that was developed specifically for the treatment of infants and children. The method originated in Japan in the 17th century. It is ideally suited to the physical and mental needs of the child. Shonishin is a very gentle and at the same time efficient method with which many illnesses can be treated.
Instead of the usual acupuncture methods, the child is treated by gentle massaging and stimulation with the help of various instruments. This rubbing, stroking and tapping has a strong therapeutic effect, which often has immediate consequences. This type of treatment does not scare the child and feels pleasant.

In the West, acupuncture was the first to become known from Chinese medicine. The first records date from the years 475-221 BC.
The increasing clinical experience was developed into a differentiated medicine based on the principles of the Daoist philosophy (Qi, Yin and Yang, 5 phases of change). The effect of good acupuncture goes beyond the treatment of individual symptoms.
Acupuncture, which aims at restoring the energetic balance, also aims to help the patient achieve a better attitude towards life.
