We use adjuvant total body acupuncture, oral acupuncture, Yamamoto new scalp acupuncture and Korean hand acupuncture.
We often supplement the treatment with moxibustion (warming the acupuncture point by burning fragrant herbs over it).
We treat the following medical and painful conditions:
Our body is traversed by a system of meridians. These meridians form a network of pathways through which the Qi (life energy) flows. Illness breaks out when Qi-flow is interrupted.
By inserting needles into suitable acupuncture points Qi is allowed to flow again Each patient experiences the actual treatment differently.
Some experience a heavy, pressing sensation at the point of needle insertion while others feel nothing. But most experience a feeling of physical relaxation after only a few minutes. Patients sometimes report that they felt a flow of energy. This flow spreads through the body from one treatment to the next.
Reactions such as shivering, tingling, dizziness, cold or warmth may occur upon the release of tension and blockages. This is no cause for alarm. It is simply a sign that the treatment is taking effect.
Generally speaking, 2-3 acupuncture treatments are carried out each week, in series of 10-15 treatments. Further series of treatment can be carried out if necessary. Patients with statutory health insurance can also be treated by acupuncture because Dr. Surminski participates in a model scheme involving all statutory health insurances.Please contact the team if you would like to make an appointment or have any questions
