Acupuncture in Berlin Treptow: Practice for Chinese Medicine

In our practice, we focus on your needs, blockages and deficiencies. Are you in pain or just can’t seem to get going? Do you feel that life is demanding too much or are you simply fed up …?

We support you – whatever your issues are – and integrate you into our search for practical solutions. In an extensive initial consultation, we determine your constitution in order to find the acupuncture points that are right for you. We will ask you questions, examine your tongue, feel your pulse and look at the condition of your belly.

Our approach to acupuncture is based on Chinese medicine and Japanese meridian therapy.

Nadeln

To treat the acupuncture points we agree will help you, we use needles in a variety of sizes. We insert the needles into your skin. Your treatment may also include tiny gold and silver pellets that we will adhere to your skin. Afraid of needles? Don’t worry – we are trained to insert acupuncture needles with as little pain as possible (think “mosquito bite”).

We are also enthusiastically researching non-invasive acupuncture, using delicate silver and gold rods that do not penetrate the skin. We also apply this technique in our practice.

Moxa

If one of your acupuncture points needs warmth, we apply the moxibustion technique. We put cones of pure Japanese Moxa (artemesia Vulgaris) and burn it on top of the point. We treat larger areas of your body with cupping therapy or gua sha, a press/stroking technique that releases acute conditions, stimulates the blood circulation and has a tonifying effect on the blood.

Nutrition Counselling

We are also convinced of the benefits of nutritional counselling based on Chinese medicine. Follow our advice to tank up on energy for coping with everyday life. Regardless of your goals – losing/gaining weight, gaining control over chronic digestion or skin-related problems, etc. – we will support you on your joyful & sensual journey toward achieving your ideal weight or changing your eating habits. To support your dietary adventure, we also offer cooking courses and workshops.
