Acupuncture is an effective treatment for chronic and acute complaints. As a treatment method it belongs to traditional Chinese medicine and is based on the ancient principle of the balance between yin and yang. If this balance is disrupted, a complaint may arise. Acupuncture can restore and or even improve health by stimulating acupuncture points on the meridians of the body. It is thanks to the complex network of the meridians thatqi and blood are transported to every part of the body. All organs, tissues and senses are nourished, strengthened and warmed by qi and blood.

An Acupuncture treatment

During an Acupuncture treatment special thin acupuncture needles will be used. During a treatment, specific points are punctured on the body. Which points these are depends on the complaint. Each acupuncture point has a unique combination of properties. By puncturing the right, carefully chosen combination of points, your body is brought more into balance. This reduces the complaints and you experience more peace and relaxation.

The term acupuncture, meaning 'using needles to puncture', is translated from the Chinese word Zhen Jiu, in which Zhen means' using a needle to puncture 'and Jiu refers to' heating with the help of moxa on the acupuncture points'.
