Acupuncture helps very well against pain and many other ailments. These include lung and bronchial diseases and allergies. In case of a serious illness or if nothing works, acupuncture helps to reorganize and build up the life forces. We have specialized in our practice here and therefore also treat problems such as sleep disorders, burnout syndrome and psychosomatic distress. For this, we refer back to a very ancient Chinese conception of man, who sees his constitution as a tripartite being standing between heavenly and earthly forces. Man receives his life force from his inherited essence (Jing), from the transformation of food and breath (Qi) and from his consciousness (Shen). Acupuncture serves to support and move the forces of the innate constitution to prevent and heal illness. The constitution is described as the innate intertwining of five universal phases of transformation of nature with the acupuncture pathway system. The different weighting of the phases of change within a person results in a creative tension, which appears as a challenge through physical and emotional problems. Human health depends on how well it is able to balance its disposition with the environment and balance it emotionally. This means being able to adequately respond to influences such as wind, cold, heat, humidity and drought and to counteract extreme emotions such as anger with the virtue of forbearance. Thus, apart from climatic factors, the phases of change have a broad correspondence system of the physical and mental functions of man. The dynamic interaction of the transformation phases can be balanced by special rules of acupuncture via the meridian system and thus contribute to the healing and prevention of diseases. The life forces in distress are determined with the aid of systematic symptom diagnostics and Chinese pulse diagnosis.
In order to avoid a wear of the vitality the conscious life-style as self-responsible, health-oriented action was demanded already more than 2000 years ago in the Chinese medicine classics. An animistic medicine that removes human responsibility by treating illness as an influence of ghosts has been rejected. Acupuncture was understood as an intervention that helps people to harmonize with the rhythms of nature. In China, an era of enlightenment was initiated very early on.
Chinese medicine has been well received in Europe since the 17th century. Nowadays, acupuncture is sometimes ingeniously developed throughout the non-Chinese world. In many places of the body so-called somatotopes (body zones) were discovered, which depict the organism and its functions on the skin surface and are therapeutically accessible to the acupuncture needle.
As somatotopic methods in our practice, especially the ear acupuncture and the skull acupuncture are used. These methods have proven to be very effective in treating back and spinal disc problems in support of training therapy or in case of acute complaints.
Apart from fine needles, acupuncture points are also stimulated with laser and infrared light.
