Tao Dao Acupunctuur is offering acupuncture treatments across the Netherlands in areas such as Amsterdam, Santpoort Noord, and Castricum. Annmarie is the founder of Tao Dao Acupunctuur. Years ago, she became fascinated and interested in acupuncture, and she wanted to deepen her knowledge and understanding of acupuncture after this.
She began a 3-year course on acupuncture back in 2007 at the TCMA – The Traditional Chinese Medicine, then she completed a one-year AMO. This is great to have on top of her acupuncture course as she takes on jobs such as a doctor’s assistant or a sports masseur.
According to Annmarie, Tao Dao Acupunctuur helps with a numerous amount of complaints such as depression, emotions, menstrual complaints, inexplicable complaints, bladder problems, rheumatic conditions, insomnia, and multiple sclerosis.
For instance, if you are suffering from depression, as it is widespread among people, well Tao Dao Acupunctuur believes acupuncture in addition to medical therapy is an excellent form of treatment to treat the symptoms of depressions.
The acupuncture treatment starts with mapping the existing complaints. I do this through an extensive intake. This is followed by viewing the tongue and feeling the wrist, which provides additional information about the complaints present. To get even more clarity about the nature of the complaints present, belly diagnosis (hara) can be made.
Once these research methods have been performed, the diagnosis will follow, and a decision will be made as to which acupuncture points can best be stuck, whether acupuncture is sufficient or whether additional moxa, Gua Sha, or cupping should be applied. An evaluation takes place at the start of each treatment, and a new treatment plan follows.
According to Tao Dao Acupunctuur, Moxa is a widely used therapy within Traditional Chinese Medicine. It can be used as an adjunct to acupuncture treatment, but it can also be performed as a stand-alone therapy, depending on the treatment goal you have in mind.
On the other hand, Gua sha, – ‘is a scraping technique on the skin that is used to promote the flow of Qi (energy).’ In more detail, the Qi stagnation (energy blockage) manifests itself in pain complaints. So, by removing the blockage and thus the pain, it is possible to scrape the skin, usually with a jade stone. If there is a blockage of the energy flow, the skin will turn pink, purple, or even black.
Cupping is an additional treatment technique for acupuncture. By keeping a flame in the cup (glass ball), oxygen is removed, and a vacuum is created. The bead is placed on the skin, and the skin is sucked into the glass bead.
This treatment technique is used for, among other things:
- Rheumatic conditions
- Pain complaints
In addition to treating an overactive bladder, there are other bladder problems where acupuncture can help, such as:
- (Chronic) bladder infections
- Trouble urinating
- Not able to pee properly
- Loss of urine
- The inability to hold up the urine
- Having “clouds” or white flakes in the urine.
If you are in the Stanpoort Noord area, Tao Dao Acupunctuur welcome you on Monday and Friday, at Amsterdam North they greet you every Wednesday afternoon and evening and then every Wednesday morning at Castricum.
