Acupuncture literally means needle pricking and is also called needle therapy or stimulus therapy.
Acupuncture therapy is a form of alternative medicine that consists of stimulating acupuncture points (using very thin needles, electric current, heat or pressure) located on the meridians. This stimulation can remove any blockages and restore the body’s natural balance.
Acupuncture is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, which is based on the life energy (Qi) that flows through the meridians. This method of healing assumes that you must treat the sick person as a whole and that each person is unique. We often work on the energy points and energy channels (meridians).
Acupuncture is a holistic therapy, which means that body and mind are approached as a whole. Not only is the complaint or disease treated, but the background and lifestyle of the person concerned is also taken into account when making the diagnosis.
The first consultation consists of an intake, followed by an acupuncture treatment and possibly nutritional advice. During the intake, ample time is taken to ask questions, feel the pulse, look at the tongue and possibly palpate a number of meridians to get the best possible picture of your health situation.
Based on this examination, a diagnosis and subsequent treatment plan will be drawn up, if desired. I will discuss this with you during the first consultation. When discussing the treatment plan, the treatment frequency will also be discussed with you.
The follow-up treatments always start with a short interview and the wrist and tongue are also carefully examined again. This way, each treatment is adapted to your unique condition at that moment and the treatment is much more effective.
