I am Aleksandra. I grew up in Slovenia. Acupuncturist is the profession I chose after moving to the Netherlands in 2014. Previously, I was a passionate librarian and a language teacher. I got introduced to acupuncture by my very good friend, an older American woman who was an acupuncturist when I was still living in Slovenia. Being a healthy diet and lifestyle enthusiast, I could immediately connect to Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy. In Amsterdam I was given the opportunity to learn more about it. In 2020 I completed 4-years of studies at Shenzhou Open University of TCM. During the study I also translated a book by Xiaolan Zhao ‘Healing Women’s Bodies and Minds through Traditional Chinese Wisdom’ into my native language.
My mission at Aleksandra Acupuncture & Holistic Care is to provide my clients with a holistic and natural approach to healing based on the wisdom and science of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). My approach goes much further than a management of the symptoms. Instead, I try to understand the root of the problem. Our relationship with the environment, strong emotions, the elements we are exposed to, the food and drinks we consume, all can have an impact on our health and play a role in the development of illnesses. I strive to both educate and heal my clients, empowering them to live better and healthier lives. I am dedicated to helping my clients move through a wide range of physical, emotional and spiritual transitions in the most efficient way with acupuncture, cupping, moxa, and diet & lifestyle advice. I am especially interested in prevention of disease and conservation of health, which is the core of TCM.
My practice is focused on: prevention & general well-being, women’s health, digestion, burnout, boosting immune system, stress, anxiety, pain.
