Women’s health

Women’s health and Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCG) has gained much knowledge and experience over the centuries in the treatment of gynecological issues. In the TCG we call gynecology “Zhong Yi Fu Ke”. Extensive studies of women’s health have been done in both acupuncture and herbal therapy. By combining this in-depth knowledge with the vision of mainstream medicine, satisfactory results are achieved.

We have extensive experience in treating patients by combining our knowledge of Western and Chinese medicine with positive results.

At ChinaMedic we treat patients with gynecological complaints on a daily basis. A problem with fertility is one of the most common complaint. The cause is often an underlying energy disorder in the gynecological area. In Western medicine such a disturbance is also known by names as: PCOS, endometriosis or something similar. Chinese medicine seeks and finds the cause an out of balance energy flow and focuses its treatment on it.

We advise women to aim for a natural fertility for as long as possible, using both acupuncture and herbal therapy. We also provide acupuncture and / or herbal therapy during IVF, IUI, ICSI, as a supplement to regular treatments.

Abdominal Acupuncture and herbal Therapy

Kasha Yang is the founder of “Dutch Institute of Abdominal Acupuncture”. She has been successfully applying abdominal acupuncture in her practice for more than 15 years. She has helped numerous patients with this special painless and effective technique. The technique is particularly suitable for gynecological complaints, both for the rebalancing of hormones as for the regulation of menstruation.

In addition to abdominal acupuncture, herbal therapy is an important part of resolving the symptoms. Thanks to our thorough knowledge of Chinese herbs, we often know which herb powder is best suited for your situation.

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
