Pain-related ailments and acupuncture

Pain is a signal from the body to let you know that something is off and out of balance. It is a natural protection mechanism. Your body lets you know that something is going on that prevents it from functioning optimally. Pain is therefore the most common complaint when you visit a doctor. As a result, Dutch people with pain symptoms take 1 million painkillers a day and the risk of addiction to painkillers is increasing.
However, by surgically removing or suppressing the pain, the cause is usually not addressed let alone eliminated. You actually only influence the inner alarm system of the body. Research into the cause to gain the best possible control of the disease is therefore always necessary. Acupuncture has traditionally played an important role in the treatment of chronic and acute pain-related ailments.

ChinaMedic Approach

With Abdominal Acupuncture and Navel Acupuncture we focus on an overall improvement of organs and blood circulation

Disrupted Energy Circulation

Within acupuncture, pain is seen as a sign that a blockage has occurred in the energy pathways somewhere in the body; the energy cannot flow or flows insufficiently. There is little to no energy flow. A shortage or reduction of life energy and blood causes possible tissue damage, which in turn causes pain. The necessary nutrients have difficulty getting to their place of destination and waste materials are not sufficiently released.

Restoring Balance

The point of view acupuncture takes, is that if there is a smooth energy flow, you feel no pain. If you feel pain then there is a blockage since a blockage causes pain. So if you improve the energy circulation, the blockage will disappear, and the pain in turn will decrease.
Several studies have shown that acupuncture helps well with pain relief. The purpose of acupuncture is to eliminate the energy block that has arisen, so that both the quality of the energy and the quantity of that energy increase. The more the energy is balanced in the body, the less pain is experienced.

The ChinaMedic Approach

You can come to ChinaMedic for all kinds of complaints, disease or ailments. In addition to helping in a wide variety of disorders, we are especially specialized in the treatment of pain ailments. The ChinaMedic Approach has emerged from Kasha’s years of experience in applying acupuncture through various acupuncture techniques together with knowledge and experience in western medicine. Add Kasha’s dedication to improving the health of her clients to the mix, and you have the unique ChinaMedic Approach.
Although symptoms may appear similar, every person is different. One has a strong constitution, the other a weaker one. One may be overweight, as the other is slender and age also plays a role. All these factors and more are considered and taken into account when determining the treatment plan. A treatment plan is therefore always a customized approach and can be adjusted at any appointment. Do you fear needles? No problem. There are methods such as the LaserNeedle in which treatment is applied through laser instead of actual needles.

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
