Acupuncture in Mannheim

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It serves to activate the body’s self-healing powers by influencing various systems of the organism, for example the autonomic nervous system and the immune system. The pain-relieving effect of acupuncture is the most researched mode of action. This effect is achieved by inhibiting pain-conducting fibres and releasing the body’s own “painkiller” endorphin.

For which complaints is acupuncture suitable?

The area in which acupuncture is applied is large. I have specialised in ear acupuncture. specialised. The ear represents all regions of the body, i.e. it can be used to influence for example the gastro-intestinal tract, the spine / joints or the vegetative nervous system. system.

I use ear acupuncture for:

  • Various (chronic) pain symptoms affecting the musculoskeletal system e.g. lumboischialgia
  • Tennis elbow
  • Shoulder-arm syndrome
  • Headaches
  • Irritable bowel / gastrointestinal complaints
  • Burnout, stress symptoms (vegetative derailment, palpitations, migraine etc.)

How can I imagine a treatment with acupuncture?

After a detailed anamnesis discussion and the diagnosis of active acupuncture points on the ear, by means of a stylus, between 3-5 needles are placed. The duration of the application is usually between 15 and 30 minutes. In some cases, very active points are given an ear seed after treatment. Ear seeds are small balls that are attached to a plaster and over which you can practise acupressure yourself until the next appointment in order to further support the therapeutic effect.

What do I have to pay attention to before and after the acupuncture treatment?

You should not have an aversion to needles. Acupuncture is usually very well tolerated. After the treatment, fatigue and relaxation are common reactions. An initial worsening can occur in very rare cases. In such a case, please inform me and we will discuss the further procedure.

Costs & Reimbursement

All treatments are charged according to the fee schedule for alternative practitioners (GebüH) and are considered private services. In some cases, statutory health insurance companies reimburse part of the costs. Please inform yourself in advance about this with your respective insurance company.
