Acupuncture has been practiced for thousand of years as a safe, gentle and effective approach to promote the natural self-healing process. The insertion of thin needles (lat. Acus = needle; punctura = stick) to specific acupuncture points throughout the body help restore the flow of qi, balance the body’s energy, stimulate healing, and promote relaxation.
Acupuncture is very helpful for pain conditions and strongly re-balances the autonomic nervous system (sympathetic (fight, flight or freeze) and parasympathetic (rest&digest//relax&heal) branch). Thus it can be used to reduce stress, pain and anxiety, address digestive disorders, sleep disorders and many more.
If appropriate, i combine Acupuncture with the following treatments:
▪ Gua Sha (chinese scraping/massage technique)
▪ Laser-Acupuncture (LLLT = low level laser therapy)
