As well as in the waiting room as during the treatment.


Please read the following carefully before you visit.

  • On arrival: disinfect your hands with the alcohol at the entrance.

  • All intake interviews are made 1.5 meters away in the conversation room, our therapist wears a mask for time.
  • Of course we cannot handle the 1.5 meter distance during the feeling of the wrist, the body examination and the placement and removal of the needles / laser. Those are the only times when we will be close to you, and we wear the masks. Apart from the above named situations the 1,5 meter rule will beholded at all time.
  • Are you 70 years or older or do you belong to a risk group? Please see if the situation is acute and if it is really necessary to come by. Call or email us if necessary to see if it is wise to come by.

  • Please realize that we cannot 100% prevent Corona infections, even taking the above measures into account.

We will of course also adhere to the above rules and also clean and ventilate frequently.

If you have any questions / comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.

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
