Is Acupuncture Painful?

For most, acupuncture is not painful. By using thin, sterile disposable needles, the puncture is hardly noticeable. However, the perception of pain differs from person to person. If there is a feeling of pain during acupuncture, I switch to extremely thin needles to counteract this. My goal is to make the acupuncture treatment as painless as possible.

I'm afraid of needles. Is Chinese medicine still possible?

Acupuncture is just one of the many treatment options offered by Chinese medicine. If you do not want needles, therapy can also be carried out using only Chinese medicines (herbal medicine).

How often do I come to therapy?

Basically, the therapy should not be a must.

At the beginning weekly appointments take place. As soon as improvements in the symptoms are archived, the treatment intervals are extended to every 2 weeks and later to every 3-4 weeks. Acute conditions may require fewer sessions, while long-standing chronic conditions may require more. The duration and efficiency of the therapy is individual and is influenced by the basic constitution, age, the duration of the symptoms and the frequency of the treatments.

I am acutely ill, should I still come for therapy?

Yes, you can still come for therapy. Please wear a mask.
