Acupuncture as a form of therapy in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) . This is a kind of treatment that has been used for more than 2000 years. It is intended to activate the body’s own healing powers by inserting special acupuncture needles into specific points and to maintain or restore health. Needling (acupuncture) or warming these points (moxibustion) specifically stimulates the organism to bring itself back into balance.Traditionally, acupuncture means regulating the flow of life energy (qi).

Akupunkturbehandlung Berlin Prenzlauer Berg
Bei einer Akupunkturbehandlung werden sehr dünne Nadeln in ausgewählte Punkte – so gut wie schmerzfrei – eingestochen. Die Anzahl der gesetzten Nadeln ist dabei variabel. In der Regel verbleiben die Nadeln 20 bis 30 Minuten in den Einstichstellen.

Acupuncture treatment

With acupuncture treatment, very thin needles are inserted into selected points – practically painlessly. The number of needles set is variable. As a rule, the needles remain in the puncture sites for 35 to 45 minutes. Manipulation on the needle triggers a feeling at the puncture site or in the course of the energy pathways (De-Qi feeling), which shows the practitioner that the needle was successfully inserted .

Clinical wonder because of Acupuncture?

As a rule, a series of acupuncture treatments must be carried out in order to gradually bring the symptoms to subside. As with taking medication, frequency also plays a decisive role in acupuncture. Therefore, depending on the symptoms, 2-3 treatments per week over a period of at least 4-5 weeks are usually required. Then, the frequency of treatment can be reduced to once a week until all of your symptoms have resolved.

Perfect for beginners in acupuncture, the Pa-Chi Piezo stimulator activates the points using the Balance Method and has a pain-relieving effect without the need to prick acupuncture needles.However, the effect is not as long-lasting as that of traditional acupuncture needles. The Pa-Chi stimulator will help reduce pain while you relax. This allows a good relationship of trust to be built between the patient and the therapist. Some of my patients bought the Pa-Chi Piezo stimulator to treat themselves at home.
*The Pa-Chi Piezo stimulator should only be used under the guidance of qualified medical personnel.

*Stimulate a point only a few times, not continuously!

*The Piezo crystal has a lifespan of 5,000-10,000 pulses, depending on how you use it. To use the Piezo stimulator properly, you should always establish a ground path, either by holding the patient’s hand or arm, or the patient touching part of the stimulator. The lifespan of the stimulator is significantly extended by grounding the body during stimulation.

Attention: Please note that the Pa-Chi Piezo stimulator should only be used under the guidance of qualified medical personnel.

Another treatment procedure that can be carried out together with acupuncture or independently is moxibustion. The term moxibustion is translated as „burning“.This therapy method falls into the field of acupuncture or Chinese medicine and, like this, has a tradition going back thousands of years. Moxibustion is the heating of various areas of the body or of acupuncture points using glowing moxa herbs.

Course of treatment in moxibustion

The wool from the mugwort leaves (Artemisia vulgaris) is burned on the needles or on a pad (garlic or ginger slice) over acupuncture points. The warmth strengthens the qi and its flow. The number and frequency of treatments depends on the disease and the course of treatment.

Further information

Acupuncture and moxibustion can generally be used for all patients and at any age. The treating therapist will be responsible for assessing contraindications due to previous illnesses or medication.Therefore, please always state diseases and medications that change the blood clotting system. An existing pregnancy must also be communicated to the therapist.

We point this out for legal reasons:
Like most naturopathic treatments, traditional Chinese medicine is not recognized by conventional medicine in its various forms of therapy. It is not part of the general medical standard. Scientific evidence has not yet been sufficiently provided and the effectiveness has not been adequately secured and recognized.
