Does acupuncture hurt, and are there many needles used?
Treatments at Auryn Acupunctuur are pleasant and relaxing, not painful. Now and then you might feel something like a short pin-prick when a needle is being placed. Very few needles are applied during a treatment session: sometimes one, on average three or four, and as an exception six to eight needles.
The Classical Chinese Medicine is a perspective of illness and health that is thousands of years old. Acupuncture is one of the therapeutic forms within this tradition.
The central issue in the philosophy of Classical Chinese Medicine is restoring the natural (energetic) balances in a human being. Acupuncture promotes more optimal balances and thus stimulates man’s self-healing capacity.
In concrete terms, treatment at Auryn Acupunctuur consists of inserting needles into the skin: so-called body acupuncture. This treatment is based on the effort to stimulate more optimal balances with as little stimuli (and thus as few needles) as possible; to guide without forcing.
