Eczema en acupuncture

Eczema is often the effect of an allergic reaction to a particular substance and is noticeable by an itchy skin. You often recognize the eczema by redness, swelling, flakes, bumps, fissures or scabs. For people with such a skin condition this is a daily inconvenience. Especially when it is a more serious form of eczema it can be an emotional and social burden for which reason people tend to isolate themselves out of shame for their condition.

The Skin

We often don't realize that our skin is the largest organ of the body. And just as with other organs the optimum function of the skin action can be affected by various factors, both internal and external. Internal factors, for example, are: not properly functioning intestines or liver, a weak functioning immune system or some form of emotional pressure. External factors can be: wrong eating habits, a lack of sufficient fluids, too much sun, the use of medication and skin products as well as a sensitivity to certain weather conditions.

In almost all cases, eczema will lead to a substantial physical discomfort. The emotional and social consequences can also be significant. Feelings of shame can lead to isolation and a lack of self- confidence and disturb in that way the flow of everyday life.

What can acupuncture do?

Acupuncture is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This age-old medicine is based on the knowledge that physical complaints arise from disruptions in the body's energy management. With acupuncture these disruptions can be repaired so that the energy flow in your body again will be balanced. Acupuncture helps the body and mind to heal themselves.

With eczema the cause is always a disruption in the energy management of the body. Accumulated energy sits in the body and seeks a way out; in the case of eczema through the skin. Acupuncture treatment together with herbal therapy is aimed at regulating the energy flow. And helps relief of most acute skin issues. In addition, because the treatment focuses on the recovery of the immune system and the ability of balancing the energy, the complaints also decrease. Soon you will notice that life with a skin problem becomes a problem of the past.

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
