Acupuncture & tmc in Berlin


Acupuncture at my clinic

Today’s most famous TCM therapy is acupuncture. Due to the lack of scientific studies for many years, TCM therapy was not recognized by mainstream / allopathic medicine. However, today the effectiveness of acupuncture for knee and back pain, weight loss and pregnancy preparation is scientifically proven and accepted by allopathic medicine.

Acupuncture is part of the ancient practice of Traditional Chinese medicine. Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners believe the human body has more than 2,000 acupuncture points connected by pathways or meridians. These pathways create an energy flow (Qi, pronounced “chee”) through the body that is responsible for overall health. Disruption of the energy flow can cause disease. By applying acupuncture to certain points, it is thought to improve the flow of Qi, thereby improving health.

Acupuncture For Pregnancy Complications

Praxis Lemm is a doctors clinic as well as a midwife clinic in Berlin specialising with pregnancy complaints and preparation.

OTHER TCM THERAPIES in our berlin clinic

Acupuncture & TCM1

Each Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment at Praxis Lemm starts with a detailed  examination and diagnostics in accordance with the basic rules of TCM, focusing on tongue diagnosis. At our TCM clinic we offer heat energy lamp treatment, physiology (herbal therapy), moxibustion, Qi Gong, Cupping, Tuina-Massahe and Chinese dietary therapy. 

Dr Lemm’s holistic and functional medicine approach takes both TCM and mainstream medicine into consideration. TCM can be exclusively used or combined with classical medical treatment. 

Herbal Therapy (Phytology)

Phytotherapy is the administration of medicinal herbs as tea, granules or tablets mostly used for chronic diseases. In China, this kind of therapy represents two thirds of TCM treatments.

MOXa Treatment

Our Moxa treatment in Berlin is one of our main TMC treatment we offer. Moxibustion refers to the burning of mugwort or a Moxa-cigar above the acupuncture points, with or without use of classical. This kind of treatment is particularly recommended when your body is low in energy or weak due to illness. Moxa-treatments are also used in pregnancy to trigger the rotation of the child from the breech-position into skull-position.


A combination of moving and breathing exercises that promotes increasing body health and power. A moved meditation that trains conscious breathing, mindfulness and a targeted flow of the Qi-energy. A scientific study has proven that patients with allergic asthma routinely practicing Qi Gong needed less medication or even were able to discontinue medications.


The Tuina-massage is another basis within the TCM. It combines massage techniques, manual therapy and acupressure according to the principles of TCM. Patients sense this massage technique as very pleasant and beneficial. Tuina-massage is a very effective therapy.


Cupping therapy is used to treat blocked Qi and to regulate states of opulence, during cupping therapy the cupping heads will be placed on certain points on the back. This therapy is particularly recommended during back pain caused by myogelosis (muscle hardening). It can also be applied as a vitalizing cupping head massage.

Chinese nutritional therapy

For millennia, Chinese medicine has taught that a healthy, appropriate diet is an integral part of maintaining good health and healing various disorders. From my 20 years experience with traditional Chinese medicine I have come to the conclusion that this is the most important therapy and pillar of TCM as you can practice it for a lifetime.


Did you know that many foods, that are generally considered to be healthy, combined with certain disorders can even make you sick? Chinese nutritional therapy works due to preferring or avoiding of certain aliments and can influences the course of a disease. One of the most important prerequisites for a successful therapy and general wellbeing is a type-matching diet. For the patient it is therefore important – focusing on the prior diagnosis – to select a type-matching nutrition. You will receive a detailed recommendation list of aliments suitable and not suitable for you.

Heat Energy Lamp treatment

As an alternative to a Moxa-cigar, an energy-giving heat lamp can be applied intensifies the effect of the acupuncture treatment.
