SPECIALIZED IN PAIN RELIEF, INFERTILITY AND TINNITUS

Pain Ailments

Pain is a signal from the body to let you know that something is off. It is a natural protection mechanism. Your body is letting you know that there is something going on that prevents it from functioning optimally. Pain is therefore the most common reason to visit a doctor.

Infertility

Men and women are increasingly experiencing difficulties with conceiving children. Sometimes it depends on the woman, sometimes on the man and in some cases in concerns both.
There are several reasons why women experience infertility. It may be due to the natural process of aging, disease in the reproductive area or something else unknown to mainstream medicine.

Tinnitus

Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, is a very annoying condition with various potential causes. Although not yet fully understood why it occurs, tinnitus is associated with hearing loss, prolonged exposure to loud sounds, stress and anxiety, ear infections, and so on. In most cases, the cause is damage to the inner ear caused by prolonged exposure to loud sounds. Since the start of ChinaMedic we have been treating tinnitus patients on a weekly basis and has it become one of our specialties.

Frequently asked questions

What exactly can acupuncture help with?

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to remedy and improve a wide range of diseases and complaints. For an acupuncturist, the approach is simple: energy flows or it doesn't flow. The symptoms show where there may be a blockage in the body and this affects the rest of the body. In addition, the acupuncturist is about activating the self-healing capacity of the body. This makes acupuncture applicable to both sleep disorders and skin problems, allergies, addictions, depression, menopausal symptoms, burnout, rsi and so on. If you want to know how far acupuncture can help you, make an appointment for a 1st consultation and have yourself fully examined. The acupuncturist can then immediately tell you what we can do for you.

How many times do I have to come?

To give you a reliable and accurate estimate of the number of treatments you need, it is best to discuss this with your acupuncturist. If you have never been to an acupuncturist, you can make an appointment for a first consultation with possible treatment. The acupuncturist can then give you an estimate based on your complaints and the consultation.

Is acupuncture painful?

We use extra-thin needles for Abdominal Acupuncture. The punctures are hardly noticeable. People sometimes don't even feel where they are. Occasionally, someone may perceive a strange feeling, also described as nagging, numb, upset or painful. This feeling is often over.

The LaserNeedle that we often use in combination with puncturing needles is invasive and you don't feel it. The LaserNeedle is ideally suited for those who are afraid of needles and small children.

What does an acupuncture treatment cost?

A 1st consultation with subsequent treatment costs € 75.00. Each follow-up treatment costs € 60.00. ChinaMedic is affiliated with the NVA (Dutch Association of Acupuncture) and treatment is reimbursed by most insurers in the supplementary. It is advisable to contact your insurer what exactly this means for you. For a full price list of all our treatments CLICK HERE
