Ich habe die Praxis nach jeder Behandlung mit viel positiver Energie verlassen. Die Stimulation mittels Akupunktur hat meinen Körper dazu gebracht die Schmerzen zu bekämpfen und mir wieder ein freies Gehen zu ermöglichen. Vielen Dank Bijan du bist Magic!

Bijan ist ein wunderbarer, einfühlsamer Therapeut der genau weiss wo die Nadel gesetzt werden muss! Mein unterer Rücken fühlt sich jetzt schon nach einer Behandlung befreiter und entspannter an :-) Ich kann Bijan von ganzem Herzen weiter empfehlen.

Bijan ist sehr empathisch und sympatisch, man fühlt sich sofort wohl. Die Befundaufnahme wird sehr professionell und seriös durchgeführt. Er nimmt sich genügend Zeit für die Patient:innen. Bijan konnte mir bei meinem Knie- und Schulterschmerzen gut weiterhelfen, bereits nach ein paar Behandlungen merkte ich eine Verbesserung.

Bevor Bijan die Behandlung beginnt nimmt er sich die Zeit und informiert sich gründlich über die Sachlage. Dann geht er mit grosser Sorgfalt an die Behandlung, die bei mir bereits nach dem ersten Mal sich deutlich spürbar gemacht haben. Sehr sympathisch und professionell.

Vor 5 Monaten bin ich beim googeln auf Bijan Doroudian gestossen. Ich hatte mich entschieden, definitiv mein 40-jähriges Suchthema zu beenden. Die sorgfältige Anamnese und der Behandlungsplan von Bijan mit der darauffolgenden Behandlung war ein voller Erfolg. Für mich unerwarteterweise war schon am ersten Abend nach der Behandlung das Verlangen nach Alkohol nicht mehr vorhanden und ist bis jetzt verschwunden, wie vergessen, ohne negative Gefühle. Zeitgleich hat Bijan noch meine chronischen Schulterschmerzen erfolgreich behandelt. Die liebevolle aufmerksame Art von Bijan ist ein Geschenk für mich. Er ist sehr ruhig und klar. Ein wunderbarer Arzt. Akupunktur ein genialer Behandlungsansatz. Vielen Dank

How does acupuncture help with Neck and Shoulder Pain?

How does acupuncture help with Neck and Shoulder Pain?

Due to the nature of our jobs in offices and being in front of computers for an extended period, or diseases such as Cervical spondylosis (degenerative disease affecting the spinal discs) neck pain is a very common complaint from my patients. Acupuncture treatment for neck pain is very well recognized and nowadays often recommended by many physicians and specialists as the initial therapeutic method to alleviate the stiffness and discomfort.

Inserting an acupuncture needle causes a reduction of inflammation, an increase in blood circulation, and release of neurochemicals, such as dopamine and serotonin. Acupuncture is believed to stimulate biochemical changes both locally (where the needles are placed) and in the central nervous system. This can relieve pain in the neck and promote relaxation.

During an acupuncture treatment for neck pain at Bern Akupunktur, determination of which points needing stimulation is based on your symptoms and health history. Even when symptoms of pain and stiffness are only in the neck area, I may place needles in other areas of the body in addition to the neck. Depending on treatment method, you might be asked to lie on the stomach, back, or sit in a comfortable position.

Depending on your specific case, acupuncture treatments for neck pain may be scheduled a couple of times per week for the first 2 or 3 weeks, and then once a week as the pain diminishes and your condition stabilizes.

The positive effects of the treatment accumulate in the first couple of days and the expected therapeutic benefits of acupuncture usually last about a week. My general expectation for acupuncture for neck pain is that you will feel relief after the first session, and the pain and discomfort may completely disappear after several treatments, depending on its severity and chronicity.

FAQ

Most people experience little to no discomfort. However, everyone reacts differently to sensory stimulation, and some people may experience very mild numbness, tenderness, and pain. Acupuncture is extremely safe when done properly. In addition, acupuncture can complement and enhance your other medical treatments. 

I use sterile disposable (single-use) needles and the treatment area is disinfected with alcohol after each treatment.

Depending on the case and the questions asked, the first treatment can last up to 75 minutes. All subsequent treatments 45 – 60 minutes.

The frequency of treatment depends on your health condition.
Some patients benefit from more frequent acupuncture treatments, while others may only need to be treated once a week. Once your condition has stabilized, you won’t need to come as frequently. When you come for your first treatment, a treatment plan will be made specifically for you.

About me

In 2009 I graduated with a Dr. TCM degree from the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Vancouver, Canada. Here in Switzerland, I am a federally certified TCM naturopath.

My journey into the world of TCM and acupuncture began in my teens. As someone who has always played competitive sports – especially soccer – it was always my desire to reduce the recovery time and overall pain of those around me. This led me to realize that in addition to treating specific, physical injuries, there must also be a holistic approach to health and wellness.

In search of a purposeful ways to help people achieve their health goals, acupuncture presented itself. I have been practicing acupuncture and Chinese medicine since 2009, and at Bern Acupuncture I care for people with sports injuries, sciatica pain, migraines, premenstrual symptoms, menopausal symptoms, burnout, anxiety, and insomnia.

I believe in educating my patients. I believe that if they have the knowledge in their hands, they can further the healing process and thus become more in tune with their bodies.

My commitment

I am passionate about providing professional and quality acupuncture treatments to reduce and eliminate pain. My goal is to support and encourage my patients on their journey to recovery and optimal health with the best possible treatment. At Bern Akupunktur, I use a number of different acupuncture treatment methods to address individual needs and health requirements.
