Endometriosis is a disease in which the womb lining occurs outside the uterine cavity. Because the tissue is on the peritoneum or other organs in the lower abdomen, the woman often has severe and painful periods. The chronic inflammation and adhesions of the fallopian tube and ovaries causes reduced fertility.

Endometriosis and Acupuncture

Endometriosis is usually treated with acupuncture together with herbal therapy. The focus of the treatment is mainly on reducing pain, regulating the menstruation cycle and reducing inflammation, and if desired also on improving fertility. The supplement is a herbal powder of the highest quality (imported from Taiwan) designed in reducing the symptoms of endometriosis.

In traditional Chinese medical endometriosis is treated as a disease pattern of local stagnation of energy and stasis of blood. The underlying causes are often a dysfunction of the liver, kidneys and spleen. During the first consultation, an individual treatment plan is made for optimum effect.

Our specialization of abdominal acupuncture is well suited for treating endometriosis, which is supported by scientific research from China. The abdominal acupuncture focuses in these cases on combating the pain, as well as on treating the disease itself. Fertility is naturally improved using abdominal acupuncture.

In China, there is a close working relationship between gynecologists and acupuncturists, often with positive results. When you choose to have acupuncture treatments for endometriosis at our practice, your gynecologist will be kept in the loop and you will still have your appointments at their practice.

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
