Medical acupuncture

If you are looking for a gentle, holistic approach to your musculoskeletal complaints and pains, which spares you from the side effects of painkillers (e.g. stomach problems, kidney and liver damage), medical acupuncture may be an excellent method for you.

Medical acupuncture can help reduce pain without medication and without unpleasant or dangerous side effects. There is no need to fear acupuncture needles either; they are specially designed, very thin needles that are typically painless when inserted or only cause mild, barely noticeable discomfort.

In some cases, medical acupuncture is an independent therapeutic option, but it can also be used as a complementary treatment alongside Western healing therapies. It can be well combined, for example, with musculoskeletal collagen therapy.

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture is an Eastern healing technique, a holistic diagnostic and therapeutic procedure that is thousands of years old. It is a complex treatment that aims to restore the physiological balance of the body. Chinese medicine is based on the idea that the human body is interwoven with energy channels (meridians) in which “qi” /”ch’i”/ (vital energy) flows freely in case of healthy functioning. Diseases are caused when this flow is disturbed. During the treatments, using special needles through acupuncture points, these energetic blocks can be unblocked, harmonising the energy flow, promoting healing and thus alleviating the symptoms of the illnesses. The scientific explanation for this is partly due to the network structure of the nerve pathways and their connections with the stimulation points, and partly due to the production of pain-relieving endorphins cased by the acupuncture and the increase in cell metabolism and self-regeneration.

Who is the treatment recommended for?
  • Musculoskeletal, rheumatological diseases: neck, waist, back, joint and muscle pain, inflammation, arthrosis, post-injury rehabilitation, pain syndromes
  • Neurological disorders: chronic headache, migraine, certain types of dizziness and tinnitus, neuralgias, Bell’s palsy
  • Respiratory diseases: allergies, recurrent respiratory diseases
  • Skin diseases: in certain cases of allergies and eczema
  • Certain digestive diseases: functional diarrhoea, reflux disease, inflammation of the intestines
  • Gynaecology: certain cases of infertility, menstrual disorders, premenstrual syndrome
  • Proven to be an effective complementary method to support the treatment of overweight and obesity and in the treatment of addictions, including smoking cessation, as it can reduce hunger and cravings
Areas of application
  • In the case of full-body acupuncture, anywhere on the body (from the top of the head to the toes), possibly also on areas of the body far from the area of concern
  • In the case of auricular acupuncture, the ear (can be used on its own for smoking cessation, or as an adjunct to the treatment of obesity)
Preparation for the treatment

The treatment does not require home preparation.

The treatment cannot be performed in the following cases

Apart from haemophilia, there are no general contraindications to medical acupuncture, but in some cases individual consideration may be required to determine whether it is appropriate. This will be discussed during the consultation.

The treatment

After disinfecting the skin, very thin (0.18-0.25 mm thick), single-use sterile medical needles are inserted into the skin at the appropriate depth, using a maximum of 15 needles per treatment (but much fewer can be used). The treatment is typically painless; in addition to the fine needle pricks, it can cause mild strain, tingling, or warmth and electricity sensation in the treated area or spread out throughout the body.

Acupuncture treatments are used as a course of treatments
Number of treatments

The treatments are administered as a course of treatment and no foreign substances are introduced into the body. A course of full-body acupuncture usually consists of 10-12 treatments (more severe, chronic cases may require significantly more), which are recommended 2 times a week. For auricular (ear) acupuncture, the treatment course can be significantly shorter. In some cases, 1 treatment per week or per month may be recommended as a maintenance treatment.

Ability to work, home care

There is no further action after the treatment. Small haematomas may form at the needle puncture sites, which will disappear after a few days.
