WELCOME TO OUR TCM PRACTICE
The 5 Elements TCM team works across methods. After the first interview, the anamnesis, your therapist will see which methods are best for you. The therapy plan takes place after the energetic diagnosis is made according to the principle of the 5 elements of TCM.

Further areas of application: Gynaecology (fertility, pregnancy support, post-natal recovery, urology (potency disorders, prostate related symptoms) babies, infants (sleep-and digestive problems, anxiety)
Hay fever: According to TCM, not only the immune system can be held responsible for the allergic reaction, but also the upper digestive organs, the spleen-pancreas system. Food cannot be digested adequately if the system is weakened and this causes an excessive allergic reaction. Acupuncture, nutrition or phytotherapy strengthen the immune system, which can alleviate the symptoms.
DETOX: How we eat, especially during the cold winter months damages our digestion. Foods like dairy products, wheat, white sugar, raw vegetables have a moisturizing effect on our body. This "moisture" in the body comes up in spring as tiredness, weak digestion, fat deposits, low energy, weak immune system, joint problems, cellulite, water retention and much more. In order to feel fit and vital again in spring, it is important that our Qi (life energy) can flow freely. Our detoxification organs (liver, kidney) may need support. From the point of view of TCM, it is advisable to take cures in spring.
Due to illness at home: We support patients with an illness that does not allow you to come to the practice, e.g. COVID, colds, flu, etc. For this case we support with Chinese and Western herbs, the recipes are delivered to your home. Once you are symptom -free, acupuncture and manual therapy help rebuild the immun system. The long-lasting loss of the sense of taste and smell, as well as persistent fatigue can be strengthened again by the treatment. For more recommendations about diet, teas or herbs, please contact your therapist.
The manifestation of the five elements in both nature and the human body. The proportions of the elements and their relationship to one another is an extremely fragile and delicate thing. Elements can support, change or damage each other. Traditional Chinese medicine has a range of highly developed, sophisticated methods aimed at regulating these elements so as to correct these "inconsistencies", and help guide the body back to "Dao", where it feels most at home, i.e. most comfortable. It uses the in-born strength of the body to maintain its household correctly and efficiently, and not waste it on the "world outside". The world outside, the environment, is constantly making demands on the body in many ways, and straining it too much. It is a great art to be able to recognize this, and to restore the body to the right condition. Just as the outside world can nourish us, it can also drain and exhaust us. What is essential to maintain health is a cycle of giving and taking in the right proportion.
