Acupuncture massage according to Penzel is a treatment technique based on the Chinese Tuina in the broader sense, which, in contrast to acupuncture, works without needles and thus without damaging the skin.
Acupuncture massage can affect the entire energy cycle of the human body, so it is not uncommon for several symptoms to change at the same time. A prescription from a doctor or alternative practitioner is required for treatment.
Since many complaints originate in the spine, this region of the body is often treated by the therapist.
The founder of this therapy was Willy Prenzel. He also wrote the quote "Illness is a disturbance of the flow of energy". Thus, with each treatment, not only a complaint or pain is treated, but the entire organism. The act point massage thus affects the entire body.
