The acupuncturist is the most visited alternative therapist in the Netherlands.
Acupuncture teaches that energy flows through the body which follows innerly connected channels. These channels are called meridians. An acupuncturist aims to deblock clogged meridians by placing needles at specific points of the body. This restores the flow of energy through the body and alleviates pain and reduces complaints.
Acupuncture is part of traditional Chinese medicine. It is more than 2500 years old and closely related to Chinese philosophy.
