Acupuncture is among the oldest healing practices in the world. It aims to restore and maintain health through the stimulation of specific points along ‘meridians’ in the body with thin, pre-sterilized disposable needles to promote health and alleviate medical problems. It works by regulating the movement of Qi/vital energy. Qi is responsable for the circulation of blood. By restoring the good circulation of Qi, there is a healthy circulation of blood. Acupuncture frees up blocked energy and returns your body to its natural state of balance.
World Health Organization
The World Health Organization (WHO) recognized acupuncture as an effective medical treatment and has issued a list of more than 50 diseases amenable to acupuncture treatment. In the last years, more and more people realized the effectiviness of acupuncture and consider this as a good complementary to the regular medical treatment. Acupuncture, although still being regarded as an alternative treatment in the Netherlands, is getting more and more popular.
Lingzhi Clinics, founded by Prof. Z.M. You, is specialized in treating a wide range of symptoms such as sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, headaches, migraines and weight problems, as well as many more other complaints.
Sinusitis, or inflammation of the lining of the sinuses, is one of the most common medical ailments. The sinuses are air filled cavities within the bones of the face and skull that communicate with the nose through tiny openings. The openings allow air to enter the sinus, and the mucus that is produced by the sinus lining to exit into the nose. Sinusitis is a condition that significantly affects the quality of life of many people, causing pain, airway obstruction and discharge, alteration of smell and flavour senses and headache
Lingzhi clinics treat sinusitis with a unique method by combining Chinese herbs and acupuncture points which tailored to the individual cases to produce the best results. With 20 years of experience in the Netherlands, we seem to have found a way to help its sufferers to release their pains and complaints caused by sinusitis.
Aches and pains at neck, joints or back, headaches, migraines or other pain: acupuncture is best known for its ability to effectively treat pain. Pain itself is not a diagnosis, but rather an indication or warning that there is a blockage somewhere in the body. Acupuncture decreases pain levels as it stimulates the body’s healing process.
Lingzhi clinics deal with a variety of pain issues by selecting unique combinations of acu-points which are highly effective, safe and natural.
