Acupuncture Treatment

Let the energy flow




Gaia Picciolini

Acupuncturist in Amsterdam

I've graduated at Academie Qing Bai, after a lifetime of roundabouts and turns leading me closer and closer to my true purpose: empowering patients to understand their bodies and discover the healing power hidden within them.


With a degree in Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, a passion for yoga, and a long ongoing experience at the side of birthing people as doula (you can read more about my work as doula here: Blossoming Mothers), I enjoy being able to bridge the gap between holistic and western medicine while providing a safe and nurturing atmosphere in which to heal . I am always looking to integrate new treatments and therapies into my practice and believe that continued learning is important for any good health practitioner.

As a member of the professional association Zhong my services can be (partially) reimbursed by your health insurance. Check what's included in your insurance on this list.



First consultation

The first time we meet we will have a longer appointment, about 1,5 hours. During this time I'll ask you plenty of questions, in order to get to know you and come to the TCM diagnosis of the issue that brought you to me in the first place. I'll then proceed to your first treatment.


Follow up

A "normal" session lasts 45-60 minutes.

Half of that time will be dedicated to listening to how you are doing in order to update my diagnosis. I'll also observe your tongue

(do not scrape it clean when brushing your teeth the morning of our appointment!)

and feel your pulse.

You'll then undress and lay on the table where I will start the treatment, which can include also cupping and moxa.

Needles are inserted and left in place for

20-30 minutes.


SOS Pregnancy

For a small extra charge I will come to you:

- morning sickness

-birth preparation
(weekly from 36 weeks)

-overdue treatment
