Do you have trouble falling asleep?
And have you already tried everything for a good night sleep?
Are you hampered by back pain?
And do you notice that this affects your daily functioning?
Is headache the rule rather than the exception?
And do you sometimes feel irritable and tired?
I suffered from extreme fatigue and was close to burnout. Thanks to acupuncture I have become much more balanced and I feel when I need to take a rest. Mandy’s advice on lifestyle also helped me a lot during this period. I feel fit again and have much more energy.
Thanks to acupuncture, my knee pain is almost gone. This allows me to run (half) marathons again and to move the way I want.
This acupuncturist has helped me a lot, thank you.
Do you want energy again and would you like to get rid of your complaints?
I can help you with acupuncture
An acupuncture treatment at AKI Acupuncture & Balance in The Hague takes 45-60 minutes. The goal of acupuncture is to restore the Qi (energy) balance and thus also make any pain disappear.
Based on a number of questions about your health, I draw up a treatment plan. I also feel your pulse and look at the tongue. This is necessary to make a proper diagnosis.
I then place wafer-thin sterile needles at special points in the body. By using so-called meridians and the specific action of certain acupuncture points, you will notice that you relax during the treatment. The needles are painless and remain in place for about 20-25 minutes. This depends on the effect to be achieved.
Acupuncture from AKI Acupuncture & Balance is in many cases reimbursed by health insurers from the supplementary insurance. The advantage is that this is not deducted from your own risk insurance. Look here for the reimbursement overview 2023.

Frequently asked questions
Does acupuncture hurt?
In principle, acupuncture does not hurt. However, inserting the needle can sometimes be a little painful for a moment or give a kind of small shock. This goes away almost immediately and is harmless.
What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is more than 2000 years old and is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The core of this teaching is that illness and pain are caused by disturbances in the energy system. These disturbances can be repaired by inserting needles. In this way, acupuncture encourages the body and mind to heal itself.
Can children also be treated with acupuncture?
Children can certainly be treated with acupuncture. I then use smaller and even thinner needles. The residence time of the needles will also be a lot shorter than with adults. Children react faster to the action of the needles. Acupuncture for children can be very effective for insomnia, abdominal pain, bedwetting and ADHD.
What are the side effects of acupuncture?
Sometimes you can feel drowsy or tired after a treatment, or very energetic. The complaints can sometimes worsen after treatment. It is because the body reacts to the treatment. This will decrease on its own. In case of persistent complaints, please contact me.
Is there evidence that acupuncture works?
There are more and more studies showing the positive effect of acupuncture on health.
For example, the Acupuncture Evidence Project study from 2017 found evidence that acupuncture was effective to varying degrees in different conditions. 122 diseases were examined, of which only 5 had no observable effect.
Do I have to believe in acupuncture?
No, you don’t have to believe in acupuncture. Acupuncture is very down to earth, the needles do the work. In some cases, you will also be expected to make a lifestyle adjustment to ensure that your complaints disappear or reduce. Then it’s of course necessary that you are motivated to make a change.
