Acupuncture - Energy and Balance

Acupuncture, as one of the oldest and possibly most renowned forms of therapy in Asia, is based on the century old knowledge that ailments and pain can be alleviated by the exact administering of needles to certain areas of the body.

The traditional points of acupuncture are positioned along the so called meridians.
The life energy Qui flows along the meridians, an undisturbed flow equals health, a Qui holdup is a sign of sickness and pain. According to Chinese teachings the energy flow (flow of Qui) should be influenced by the needling of acupuncture points in order to achieve various effects: pain alleviation, effects to the immune system, alleviation of muscular tensions (myogelosis), enhancement of the blood flow, hormonal effects and relaxing as well as balancing effects on the psyche.
Since the 1970's acupuncture is officially recommended for the treatment of otolaryngological diseases such as inflammations of the nose (rhinitis), the sinuses (sinusitis), of the pharynx (Pharyngitis), the palatine tonsils (tonsillitis), and the lower respiratory tracts (bronchial asthma, chronic bronchitis) as well as tinnitus, vertigo, headaches and cervical spine syndrome.

We conduct nose, ear and body acupuncture with sterile disposable needles. For anti-smoking-cures we use so-called durable needles. With certain ailments the treatment with needles is supplemented by Moxa-therapy.
Moxa means mugwort: When applying Moxibustion dried leaves of mugwort are smoldered above acupuncture points, a process by which the heat supply can stimulate the Qui.
