Acupucture Daniela Pontes completed her master’s degree in TCM at the Superior School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Portugal in 2009. During her studies, she was drawn to gynaecology and midwifery; her master thesis was about the use of acupuncture during pregnancy. She then pursued post-graduate studies on diet and Asian medicine in China. To enhance her knowledge about midwifery and gynaecology, she participated in an intensive practical course at Doctor Soma Glick in Bali. She has been working with Femme-Amsterdam since 2015 and mainly treats women who wish to become pregnant, pregnant women and women who have given birth. Acupuncture is a thousand-year-old traditional Chinese medical art. From a holistic perspective, people are seen as part of a larger whole that is integrated into the environment. The goal is to restore health and well-being in an effective and natural way. The acupuncturist tries to restore the energy flow in certain parts of the body. It does this by inserting thin needles at specific points in the meridians. During pregnancy, acupuncture can help alleviate ailments and restore physical and emotional balance. Complaints such as nausea, headache, back pain and fluid retention and hormonal imbalance can be reduced or resolved with one to three treatments. Treatment consists of applying thin needles to specific parts of the body. Daniela can also use acupuncture to prepare expectant mothers for their delivery from of 36 weeks. Hypnotherapy In 2013 Daniela extended her studies into Hypnotherapy in order to combine her skills from the body-mind connection from Chinese Medicine with the emotional and subconscious part in order to bring a more whole way of working, she uses this powerful technic to help to prepare for birth, deal with anxiety, postnatal depression and fertility problems. Along the sessions you will also get a tailor made audio that you can then listen to create long lasting change and create new tools for self-development. Modern Hypnotherapy consists of guiding someone into a light trance, similar to when you are about to fall asleep or about to wake up. This light trance allows your rational mind to relax in order for you to access your subconscious mind, the mind who controls our memories, behaviors and physiological processes but also the intuitive mind. By accessing this part of your subconscious it is possible to both retrieve insights and wisdom but also to seed more positive thoughts in order to change behaviors and achieve what we wish to achieve. Based on the principle that we’re not affected by the experiences itself but by our own interpretation of what happened, the Hypnotherapy can explore the real cause of a problem and help reinterpret and reprogram how we perceived it by creating new neuronal circuits. Besides this, the process of entering a light trance is in itself a very relaxing one, releasing stress and helping you restore a more balanced mental health, leading into a more balanced and happy life. This can be used with the purpose of preparing for birth, postnatal depression, release anxiety or by fertility problems. To contact Daniela, call her at 0613892986
