What happens during an Acupuncture Treatment?

During an acupuncture treatment very fine needles are inserted into predetermined body areas that act in a manner of energy vortexes.

Different ancient techniques help regulate deficiencies or excesses according to a person's disease patterns.

Thus, ten people with the same disease may be treated all in a different manner while ten people with different illnesses may receive the same or a similar treatment.

Only the well-trained acupuncturist with a deep understanding of the processes involved is in a position to come up with a suitable assessment and treatment protocol.

Pain relief is but one of the strong points of acupuncture. It's action can go much deeper.

From immune system regulation to specific treatment and support of certain organs or physiological body functions acupuncture has a very wide range of possibilities.


Our ear is considered a mirror of our entire body and its systems. Amply tested and proven in a variety of drug-withdrawal programs ear acupuncture finds its use also in many other clinical situations.

Ear Acupuncture is performed by temporarily inserting fine small needles into one of the many ear points.

It is particularly practical if, for one reason or another, one or several of the relevant body points cannot be accessed.

Your practitioner also may send you home with instructions to keep manipulating an adhesion tape covered plant seed (vaccaria seed), a tiny magnet, or even a minute thumb-tag like needle that s/he placed in certain points of your ears.

Treatable Conditions include...
...Specific Pain Syndromes of musculoskeletal nature
...Some Pain Syndromes of internal nature

More and more Hospitals are using Electro-Acupuncture anesthesia. In daily clinic use, Electro-Acupuncture is one of the most effective tools in the treatment of a variety of motion problems and for injury rehabilitation.

After setting the needles as for any other acupuncture treatment tiny electrodes are connected to the needles. Small stimulating currents are then sent through these needles.

For safety reasons, most of the units used are battery operated and can be fine tuned to the individual comfort level of each patient.

Treatable Conditions include...
...Knee or Elbow problems
...Ankle or Wrist problems
...Hip and Shoulder problems
...Tennis Elbow
...Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
...Bone spurs


Homeosineatry represents one of the most effective ways to ensure controlled delivery of a homeopathic remedy combined with the ancient principles of acupuncture.

Acupuncture needles are dipped in a specially prepared specific homeopathic remedy prior to being inserted in the body (thus wet needling).

This allows for acupuncture points to be selected that have been shown to be particularly effective for certain conditions, while the appropriate homeopathic remedy is being delivered on target.

Treatable Conditions include...
...Muscular and Tendon problems
...Arthritic conditions
...a variety of internal conditions.
