Acupuncture is the best known modality of Chinese Medicine that also encompass herbs, acupressure, tuina massage, cupping, moxa gua sha, qi gong and tai chi.
My foundation is Traditional Chinese Medicine though I also use the systems of Dr. Tan´s Balancing Method, Boel´s Modern Acupuncture, 5 Elements Acupuncture, Auricolo Therapy and Posturology in my acupuncture treatments. These modalities combined, create a synergy effect that surpass the stand alone approach, thus being more effective, creating superior results.with faster recovery.
Acupuncture is all about balancing the energy flow in the body and creating the optimal conditions for the body to activate its own healing process. The human organism is truly amazing at self healing, when given the right circumstances

Also called Ear Acupuncture, is a western scientific approach that operates via the nervous system.
Dr Paul Nogier from France discovered the connection between the ear, the body and and how inserting small sterile needles onto the ear, can treat imbalances in the body.
It has its origins from 1951 where he then spent the next 20 years mapping out the connection between the ear and the rest of the body. Just like reflexology mapped out the body in the feet. This means that the spine, organs, hip, knee, jaw and so forth all have a points in the ear that is connected via the nervous system.
In 1996 he was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine, for his discoveries of this connection. Today Auricolo therapy is used in the hospitals in France and Ear acupuncture is now, by the WHO (World Health Organization ) acknowledged as a science.
I use small perma needles that will stay on the surface of the ear from 1 – 14 days.
I use Auricolo Therapy as a supplementation to my other treatments and in correction of any posturological asymmetry that can occur in the muscular/skeleton system
Posturology is an effective form of treatment for pain, asymmetry and disturbances in the muscular/skeleton system.
Posturology is the science of the body´s posture and it´s task is to keep the body in an upright position and in balance while in rest mode and in motion. Posturology is being studied as a discipline within the neurological science at universities in France, Italy and U.S.A.
In short, posturology is the description and treatment of our posture.
Cupping is a therapeutic tool, most often made out of glass, but can also be made out of plastic or bamboo.
Cupping creates a suction effect so that is attaches to the muscle tissue. This suction increases the circulation of Qi “energy” and flushes the area with fresh blood, thus assisting in releasing stagnation and blockages in the affected tissue. Cupping can also be used to remove “Wind, “Cold” or “Dampness”. Terms we use in Chinese Medicine.
There are different cupping techniques we use as practitioners depending on, if we want to drain, increase or move Qi.
It is a form of treatment we use within the Chinese Medicine system but other countries and cultures, has and still use it to this day.
I use Cupping as supplementation to my treatments if there is a need for it.
Meditation is the easiest thing to “do” and the hardest thing to master.
That being said is in an invaluable tool to tame the “Monkey Mind”, quiet our thought processes and heart beats and will be a great companion to you, be it, you sit in a cave and meditate, a soft cushion in a quiet place In your own home, standing in line in the supermarket, stuck in traffic or interacting with other people.
I started guiding meditation circles back in 2004 and have practiced it myself for even longer.
Considering that the breath is with us of every second of our lives it makes sense to make it a close companion.. 90% of us, if not more are shallow breathers, breathing only in the top our chests leaving no room for our extremities to receive our oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide (waste material). It’s a vicious cycle so let’s start breathing properly.
I can provide breathing exercises and meditation techniques for you to explore.
