Nach mehreren Monaten mit verschiedenen Therapien, um meine chronischen Schulterschmerzen (Frozen Shoulder) in den Griff zu bekommen, habe ich mich entschieden, Akupunktur auszuprobieren. Nach ein paar Behandlungen sind die Schmerzen stark zurückgegangen, so dass ich die Schmerzmedikamente absetzen konnte, und die Beweglichkeit der Schulter hat sich wieder verbessert. Ich habe mich bei Bijan sehr gut aufgehoben und wohl gefühlt. Er ist sehr professionell, sympathisch, einfühlsam und hat ein offenes Ohr. Er hat mir auch rasch die Bedenken betreffend der Nadeln nehmen können. Ich bin mehr als zu frieden mit der Behandlung und kann Bijan nur weiterempfehlen. Vielen lieben Dank!

Ich ging aufgrund von Schwangerschaftsbeschwerden (Rückenschmerzen + Schlafprobleme) zu Bijan in die Akupunktur. Er nimmt sich immer viel Zeit um den aktuellen Zustand zu erfragen und hat eine stets aufmerksame und emphatische Haltung. Bereits nach wenigen Sitzungen konnten wir einen stabilen Zustand erreichen. Ich fühle mich bei ihm rundum wohl und gut aufgehoben.

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.
