Let me explain the APM to you:
Imagine a river with various inflows and outflows. When beavers build a dam, there will be a lot of water before the dam and not enough water behind it. Most likely the fields and meadows next to the river will be flooded or they will dry out respectively. In the same way you can imagine the energy flow in your body and understand possible consequences of blockages.

According to Willy Penzel (1918-1985), the founder of the APM, any disease is a disturbance in the energy flow. The APM is a holistic meridian therapy that has its origin in the Traditional Chinese Medicine. Meridians are the lines in your body in which your energy (Qi) flows. Unlike the acupuncture with needles, the APM treats the entire meridian with a massage stick and not only certain points. In addition to that, it is certainly possible to treat targeted points as well. Often, blocked sacroiliac joints or scars cause physical problems. That's why these blockages are treated as well. 

muscle tension, stress, pain, sleeping problems

muscle tension, pain conditions and stress

Due to the harmonizing effect of the APM on your body and mind, the treatment has a positive effect on tension and psychological and mental stress. It is fascinating how the treatment can calm the mind in such a short amount of time.

Possible use cases:

  • Emotional stress, anxiety, unprocessed emotions

  • Stress, rumination and worries

  • Sleep disorders

  • Muscular tension and pain

  • Back pain, headaches and migraines

  • Rheumatic pains

  • Acute and chronic pain conditions

  • Blockages in the sacroiliac joint

Psychological stress is often the trigger for physical complaints. Since the APM treatment affects both, physical and mental levels, it is a great therapy. The APM can also be effective for complaints for which no medical diagnosis could be made!

functional disorders

Functional disorders are often the trigger for physical complaints. In these cases, there is no organic diagnosis. By harmonizing the flow of energy, these complaints can often be remedied. Especially with longer-lasting or recurring problems, it is often worth taking a look inside - into your mind.

Possible treatment areas:

  • Digestive problems, irritable stomach or bowel syndrome

  • Endocrine system

  • Cardiovascular system, blood pressure

  • Nervous system

  • Breathing

  • Musculoskeletal system

  • Metabolic system

  • Generally for complaints without a diagnosis

immune system, allergies

strong immune system with apm

With the APM, you can strengthen your immune system in both, acute and chronic conditions. Of course, it's best if you come for prophylaxis every now and then. A series of Wei Chi treatments can prevent colds and flu. If you get sick anyway, a treatment in the early stages can counteract very well.

Possible use cases:

  • Acute or chronic bronchitis

  • Forehead and sinus infections, cough

  • Feeling weak, body aches

  • Pollen allergy (early treatment)

  • Strengthening of the immune system during chemotherapy: during this time it is particularly important to strengthen the body as much as possible

  • Prophylaxis: Numerous diseases can be prevented by harmonizing the energy flow and eliminating interference fields 

In addition to the massage stick, the cupping glass can also be used during this treatment. I only do cupping while moving (no bloody cupping), so you can really enjoy it! I am also happy to support you with valuable nutrition tips.

APM and sports

Our body's energy system also affects our muscular system. The human body needs exercise, but it can also be too much. Possible consequences can be sore muscles, muscular hardening or a general lack of energy. According to the theory of acupuncture massage (APM), there is an abundance of energy in the area of ​​muscle tension. With the APM, this fullness is derived by treating certain meridians. It harmonizes the flow of energy, which normalizes muscle tension.

Possible areas of application:

  • Sore muscles

  • Muscle stiffness

  • Fatigue

  • Stimulating the lymph flow

  • Sports injuries (e.g. torn ligaments, strains, sprains)

  • Bruises

  • Weakness, exhaustion

pregnancy, birth preparation

APM during pregnancy

This gentle therapy not only eliminates many problems before and during pregnancy, it also creates optimal conditions for a complication-free birth.

Possible pregnancy problems are:

  • Nausea and vomiting: These occur mainly during the first few months of pregnancy.

  • Back pain: The growth of the baby puts more strain on the spine.

  • Water retention / swelling

  • Blockages in the sacroiliac joint

  • Abnormal position of the fetus

As the planned birth date approaches, I recommend to have the treatments more frequently. The treatment during pregnancy always strengthens the middle of the body and towards the end, the pelvic area is supplied with a particularly large amount of energy. After difficult births, the APM treatment can help you to recover quickly. 


apm and the unfulfilled wish to have a child

Many couples today suffer from unwanted childlessness. The causes are manifold and despite the enormous medical advances, it is far from being adequately explored. APM therapy offers a different perspective: If no diagnosis can be made (after determination from a specialist), there probably is an energy flow disorder. This can affect both men and women, therefore both partners should be treated. Many people in today's society are very head-controlled and the energy accumulates too much in the head area. Thus, the body has no way of supplying the pelvic area with enough energy. Especially during pregnancy, it is important that a lot of energy is available in the pelvic area. The treatment lets the energy circulate well in the body and then it can be directed to the pelvic area.
