Abdominal Acupuncture: The Differences

Often, fewer needles are used than with traditional acupuncture. I know that's a bit of a provocative statement.

I often work with one, two or three needles, including traditional acupuncture. But AA offers the possibility of treating the whole body on the abdomen. That is why it is also called microsystem.

But it's much more than that, because it works with 3 different systems at the same time. It's a hologram of the body, which in my opinion describes it best.

In addition to the traditional acupuncture points on the abdomen, there are specialised points that are used in AA. And working in three dimensions is very interesting because I can access the points of the back through my abdomen.
The Ren Mai is also Du Mai and the Kidney meridian also corresponds to the Bladder meridian. Fabulous, isn't it?

The distances and dimensions are also not identical to traditional acupuncture.

The unit cun is defined differently and converted into centimeters to adapt to the morphology of each individual. The cun is still considered a ratio, but it is measured with a ruler. It's a bit tedious at first, I admit, but you get used to it quickly, and so does the patient.
