The government has decided to extend the more stringent measures regarding the COVID-19 virus. Acupuncturists fall under the contact- professions for which they are no longer allowed to carry out their treatments for the time being.

Therefore, ChinaMedic will not perform acupuncture treatments until May 20th 2020.

ChinaMedic offers other options:

  • Are you already a patient at ChinaMedic and did you run out of your Chinese herbs? Or do you want to use Chinese herbs in these turbulent times to strengthen your immune system? Our mailbox (info@chinamedic.nl) is still open for ordering Chinese herbs for both delivery and collection.
  • From May 1st our digital consults will be open. Would like to plan an appointment, please send us an email to receptie@chinamedic.nl 
  • From May 20th you can make appointments with us again. If the measures are extended again, the appointments can of course be canceled or moved free of charge.

To minimize the spread of the coronavirus, here’s the advice from our acupuncturist Kasha Yang.

 

Precautionary actions:

1. Wash your hands well before taking food and before touching your face.

2. Greet each other with your elbow instead of a kiss on the cheek.

3. Keep a distance (2 meters) when you see someone sneezing or coughing, or walk away immediately.

4. Gargle with lukewarm water, spit in your throat and mouth for at least 5 seconds, then do this 3-5 times a day, especially if you’ve been in a public place. (A study in Japan shows that this reduces the risk of influenza virus infection by 40%.)

5. Ventilate your rooms for at least 5 minutes every day.

6. Stay at home as much as possible.

Improve your own immunity:

1. Regular living, getting enough sleep and eating a healthy and varied diet.

2. Avoid too much stress.

3. Take a warm (foot) bath every day so you can sweat lightly. (around 38-40 degrees, 30 – 45 min). For example, place a (thermos) jug with hot water next to your (foot) bath. This way you can always refill when the water has cooled down.

4. Drink (homemade) fresh juice every day.

A recipe for 3 persons can be:

-1 kilo of winter carrot

– 5 elstar or jona gold apples

– 30 g of fresh ginger

With a little ginger, it neutralizes the coldness of the juice and strengthens digestion. It is important that you clean everything very well with water before you press it.

5. Massage three acupuncture points every day, see the video on our site:

6. Drink Chinese herbal teas to strengthen your immune system.

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
