Acupuncture and Pain Management

Acupuncture has almost become a synonym for treating pain.
There is a long list of diseases and disorders that acupuncture can treat:

Headache, migraine, neck pain, lower back pain, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, knee pain, herpes zoster pain, trigeminal neuralgia, phantom pain, postoperative pain, fibromyalgia, polyarthritis, arthrosis etc.

Acupuncture can improve the condition, clear or lessen the pain and therefore reduce painkiller intake. It can bring relief and improve the quality of life.

Acupuncture and Stress Relief

The rapid changes in life-style in our modern, highly technological society and the growing pressure in the workplace and family life have resulted in an increasing number of people with stress syndromes. Sleeping disorders and insomnia, fatigue, headache, neck pain, shoulder pain, muscle tension, a weakened immune system, emotional lability, nervousness, anxiety, depression and even burn-out are the common complaints.

Chinese medicine views all of these conditions as a result of the disturbance in the free flow of the life energy Qi caused by stress factors.

The stimulation of acupuncture points ensures the free flow of Qi, by means of which a deep relaxation and improvement of the current condition are possible.

Acupuncture and Weight Loss

In Chinese Medicine, food is classified according to its flavour, its energetic nature or equivalently its thermic effect on the body, and its impact on the vital energy and direction of the flow of Qi. Food is chosen and prepared according to individual body constitution, requirements and each person’s individual health condition.

A healthy and sustainable weight loss comes therefore as a result of dietary changes adapted to the person in question. It also leads to an increased feeling of wellbeing, contentment and having more energy. Any nutritional counseling that has the goal of weight loss is therefore individually tailored and specifically addressed to the person and his or her health condition.

Acupuncture may be included in this process of transition and plays an important supporting role.

Acupuncture is used more and more frequently in the prevention and treatment of hay-fever and has proven itself in practice.

In order to balance the body, to restore its normal self-defense properties, to support and strengthen the body, one should start acupuncture treatments before the hay fever season starts. If possible, the ideal time to start would be four to six weeks before the beginning of the pollen period. It will make the coming symptoms largely prevented or alleviated.

If the pollen season has started and the symptoms are already present, the goal of the treatment is to relieve the symptoms and restore normal mucosal function while strengthening the body and the body’s self-defense abilities.
