Restore your body's natural balance with IAM-acupuncture
At IAM-acupuncture, Petra van der Wildt practices holistic acupuncture based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Japanese style acupuncture, as well as different styles of massage therapy, including reflexology, trigger point, deep tissue and neck, shoulders, and upper back massage.
Here's why a session at IAM-acupuncture could be just what you need.
Why choose IAM-acupuncture?
Looking for a calming environment with an open and inviting atmosphere? This is the place to go!
Petra, fluent in both English and Dutch, received her training as an acupuncturist at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (PCOM) in Chicago, and continued her education at Shenzhou Open University when she moved back to the Netherlands.
She takes ample time to make sure each of her clients feels comfortable, and carries out a thorough intake to create a personalised treatment plan, specifically catered to the individual's needs. Her approach is unique, in the sense that the combination of acupuncture with reflexology (another type of massage) and a conversational space allows not only for a warm, gentle, and effective improvement of the physical symptoms, but also for the opening up of new holistic wellbeing options which may have not been explored before.
How does acupuncture work?
All the body ever does is try and keep the balance. When something is out of balance, the body will send a signal. This can be a pain signal, or maybe a general feeling of unease, underlying tension or other symptoms. If we ignore these symptoms, they may get worse and eventually end up becoming a disease.
Acupuncture helps jump-start the natural and powerful healing processes of the body. By inserting needles into the right spots, acupuncture reminds the body of this balance.
During an acupuncture session, one goes into a deep state of relaxation. It gives the body and mind the opportunity to go inward, rewire, and rebalance. Picture it like this: you are working on your computer and all of a sudden, your screen freezes up. You try everything to get it started again, but to no avail, it stays frozen.
Then you remember that you can also switch it off and wait for a few minutes. While switched off, the computer gets the opportunity to rewire its internal hardware network. You switch it back on and… voila! Everything operates smoothly again.
How Petra became interested in traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture
"The initial reason for me trying acupuncture was for fertility purposes," Petra says. "The impact and result of these treatments left a big impression on me which sparked my interest in studying this medicine."
She remembers lying on the treatment table and feeling blown away by all the sensations running through her body as the needles were inserted. "I would describe it as a flowing sensation of sorts, like a tingling and rippling of a current. It was a pleasant feeling, and I became acutely aware of its energetic healing impact."
