Pregnancy and Fertility Acupuncture
Acupuncture, Chinese Dietetics and Nutrition Therapy
Acupuncture is known as an effective treatment in many health conditions. Some of them are successfully treated in a short period of time; chronic conditions need more attention. Acupuncture is painless, safe and has no side effects. It is suitable for most people. Most Dutch health insurances reimburse the costs of acupuncture. I am a member of Professional Acupuncture Association Zhong. You can claim treatment money back from the insurance. You can visit Zhong to find out if your insurance company covers the cost of acupuncture.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) food is treated as medicine. The color, structure and even the way of growing the food matters. However, the most important factor in nutrition therapy is to look at the individual needs and health problems and choose matching food.
The benefits of understanding our nutritional needs are life long lasting. Sometimes it is enough to have only few nutritional sessions and follow given advice to achieve required effect.
I invite you to view the page Nutrition and learn more about it.

I am licensed acupuncturist; I graduated at the Shenzhou Open University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in Amsterdam in 2017 in the field of Acupuncture. I benefited from teachings of many accomplished doctors and professors and was fortunate to be able to study different diagnostic methods and treatments from them. After three years of intense study of acupuncture, I decided to deepen my knowledge in the field of Western Medicine to gain more understanding about various health conditions this time from the perspective of Western Medicine. I followed a one year of very intense study of Foundation of Western Medicine also at Shenzhou Open University obtaining my diploma in June 2018. Combaining the knowledge of TCM and Western Medicine allows me to perform my tasks as a therapist even better and with more understanding towards my patient’s conditions.
I constantly deepen my knowledge and take part in seminars regarding TCM as Western Medicine.
