What does acupuncture treat?

As a regulation therapy, acupuncture treats all functional, vegetative, nervous and regulation disorders which are in principle reversible, such as:

  • Migraines, headaches from various causes, facial pain, trigeminal neuralgia
  • Tinnitus and hearing disorders
  • Dizziness
  • Allergies, weak immune system
  • Disorders of sight, smell and taste, chronic bronchitis
  • Facial nerve paresis
  • Sleep disruptions, tension, digestive disorders
  • All pain in the musculoskeletal system e.g. cervical spine syndrome, tennis elbow, etc.
  • Addiction problems, e.g. smoking cessation
  • Tennis elbow, chronic lumbar spine and knee complaints

There are some special types of acupuncture. These include ear acupuncture, hand and foot acupuncture and head acupuncture. These branches are referred to as microsystems. In other words: Like reflexology zones, they represent the entire body in a small area.

Alternatives to traditional acupuncture include laser acupuncture and electro-acupuncture, whereby the points are stimulated using light or electromagnetic waves. Some therapists also combine homeopathy with acupuncture. This involves injecting complex homeopathic remedies into the appropriate acupuncture points. This referred to as injection acupuncture or mesotherapy.
