Every year people regularly come to ChinaMedicfor a series of treatments for their osteoarthritis. Since the ChinaMedic Approach consists of a variety of acupuncture techniques, we can combine several techniques that will benefit your situation. We generally apply two techniques for osteoarthritis: classical acupuncture and laser needle acupuncture.

The stimulation with the LaserNeedle is just as strong as with metal needles and completely pain-free. According to the clinical research, with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, the application can cause a regeneration of the cartilage. Because of an increased cell metabolism more cartilage tissue is formed instead of being degraded. This reduces pain, stiffness and inflammation and increases onesmovementand ease and therefore quality of life.

Read below the experience of one of our patients:

Rian 26-06-2018 Amsterdam

“After replacing my front cruciate ligament in my knee in 2011, I had pain in my knee because I also had considerable cartilage damage. After walking around with pain every day for two years, I decided to try acupuncture in 2013.

Via via I came to Kasha Yang for a consultation. She came across as a skilled acupuncturist who gave me a positive feeling about the possible treatment. If only the pain would diminish or even disappear over time, I would be very happy.

However, it turned out that after some 20 acupuncture treatments, the pain in my knee had permanently decreased by at least 75% and I lost the stiffness in my knee more and more. In the 2nd year with another 15 treatments with the LaserNeedle, the pain had even completely disappeared, which was really a relief. On the advice of Mrs. Yang, I take about 10-12 LaserNeedle acupuncture treatments for a period of 6 weeks (twice a week) as a kind of maintenance. I have been doing this for 5 years now (as of 2018) and I am very happy with the effect. It is really great that acupuncture directly contributes to the reduction or disappearance of pain caused by cartilage damage, so that you can move more freely in your daily life.



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
