Skin acupuncture - Baunscheidtieren
Baunscheidtieren is a superficial form of acupuncture developed by the engineer Carl Baunscheidt.
Baunscheidtieren can bring to the surface all kinds of complaints, which are fixed deep inside the body, and ventilate them. This can be done all over the body, even in the face and on the eye lids. It is completely harmless and is even applied to infants.
The Engineer Carl Baunscheidt (1809-1873) was suffering from gout. The story goes that he was bitten by a mosquito on the affected area and the pain of gout immediately diminished. He created a shooting machine with 33 needles (the Lebenswecker) to mimic the sting of a mosquito and a special oil with almost the same properties as the poison of a mosquito. He was relieved of his gout in a short time.
How does it work?
Lebenswecker with needle head
Nowadays I use a little hammer with a disposable needle head. The hammer is also very suitable voor small areas like fingers, toes and eye lids.
