Tuina Massage

Tuina focuses on restoring balance in the human body through special meridian massage and mobilization techniques. A free flow of energy is stimulated by massaging of the meridians.

Tuina uses techniques such as rubbing, pressing, kneading, turning, pinching, rotating movements and beating. The therapist uses both his fingers, palms, fists and elbows. The choice and variation of the manipulation techniques depends on the disease and the complaints of the patient.

Tuina is most commonly used in case of complaints related to joints, the spine, muscles and tendons or simply for a wonderful physical and mental relaxation. The massage removes physical and emotional blockages, cleanses the organs, promotes blood flow and improves the body’s resistance. In a safe and friendly way Tuina helps you get back into balance, regaining wellness and a fitter condition. People can book a Tuina massage for relaxation or as a meridian massage. A massage is approximately 60 minutes.



A Moxa therapy treatment is very suitable for expelling cold from the body and in particular cold that has gotten into the body from the outside. You can think of a draft from a window, moisture and cold after a rain shower or dampness. A Moxa stick is used for treatment. Such a stick is made from compressed mugwort and is ignited. With the smoke that comes of the stick, the affected area is heated to release the blockage (s). In addition, Moxa strengthens the organs.

Cupping/Gua Sha

With cupping, cups are placed on the body and vacuumed. This pulls germs out of the body and stimulates blood circulation. Blood is drawn to the surface and urges the body to purify.
Gua Sha provides body and blood purification in a different way. With the help of a “scraper” and a special herbal oil, the body is stimulated in short, firm strokes from top to bottom to release blockages in muscles, lymph nodes and blood.

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
