Emotional complaints, little energy
I had very little energy for months. However, the main reason that I decided to have acupuncture applied was that for almost half a year I had suffered from severe anxiety and regular panic attacks, as a result of sexual abuse in my youth.
The GP had advised me psychotherapy, EMDR treatments and medication. – According to the psychotherapist, however, EMDR was not suitable for me; – The months of therapy did not reduce my fears; – The medication gave me nosebleeds (later it turned out that the medication had a vasodilator side effect that I could not tolerate).
Jean-Paul listened carefully and extensively to my history. It was new to me to learn that acupuncture could also help with emotional anxiety. I have now had 7 treatments in total. Each time, a lot of attention was paid to how I felt and which complaints arose. Jean-Paul always used this to explain which treatments he wanted to apply. After each treatment I needed a lot of rest, and therefore a lot of patience. I feel that it is better to continue with the acupuncture for a while, but I don’t have any fears anymore. This is such a liberating experience! I never thought it possible that I would be able to experience this again and I am especially grateful to Jean-Paul for his expertise and care.

Back pain and fibromyalgia
I’ve been coming to Jean-Paul’s for a few weeks now and I’m very satisfied. I have been suffering from my entire back for years (approximately 21 years) and for some time now I have suffered from my knees, hips and ankles due to fibromyalgia, hypermobility and scoliosis. I have already tried many different treatments such as physiotherapy, back program, mensendieck, osteopathy and a lot of medication. Nothing helped for a long time and I didn’t want to stay on the medication for the rest of my life. My last hope was Jean-Paul and I’m so glad I did. Jean-Paul makes me feel really comfortable and he really listens to your complaints. Jean-Paul does everything he can to make me feel better. For me it has helped tremendously. I am now off my medication and the pain I still have is going very well. I recommend it to everyone because I really feel much better than 2 months ago. – Bianca

Chronic sleeping problems, restlessness and stress
I mainly suffered from insomnia, stress, pain in my lower back and a very restless feeling. I’ve had this problem for at least 25 years. At a certain point you don’t know any better and you try to make the best of it: but in the end this is at the expense of your joy of life. I absolutely did not want to start with sleep medication. I’ve tried everything like melatonin, yoga, sleep music, every sleep ritual I could think of, devoured one sleep book after another. The result was that I became even more stressed and this made me feel very restless, until I discovered the acupuncture of THE WHITE OS. I have been in treatment for 5 weeks now and believe it or not but I am now much calmer, less stressed and now sleep 6 to 7 hours straight. I am so glad I started this treatment and I thank Mr Jean-Paul for this. I have experienced the treatments as very pleasant. – Jose

Chronic bladder infection
After dozens of courses of antibiotics, examinations by a gynecologist and urologist and treatments by a pelvic floor physiotherapist to combat a chronic bladder infection, the general practitioner and the urologist suggested taking a small amount of antibiotics daily as a preventive measure. I heard from someone who got rid of her recurring bladder infections through acupuncture. So I ended up at De Witte Os at the beginning of November and thanks to the pleasant treatments by Jean Paul I have not had a bladder infection so far. I am confident that it also increases resistance. – Wieke

Low resistance
I go once a month for an acupuncture and after treatment, I go to ‘Praktijk de Witte Os’. Jean-Paul works professionally, with attention and respect. Because of the treatments my resistance has clearly improved and my energy has increased, I also sleep better. A very good way to take care of yourself; I recommend it to everyone! – Mary

Injury prone and flu
With my many sports, the White Ox is my regular practice for keeping my muscles loose and flexible. Jean-paul asks where I am having trouble or where it is stuck, after which he massages the spot well. Thanks to Jean-paul I never suffer from major injuries and I can continue my training sessions. Last time I went to the White Os with the flu. After which Jean-Paul proposed to tackle the flu with acupuncture. No sooner said than done. After the treatment, the flu set in completely and I was able to go to bed right away. However, the next morning when I woke up, everything was gone. I still had a bit of a cold but the flu was gone and I was able to go to work. – Ans

Acute back pain
Sunday February 10, 2019 my back was so stuck that I could no longer sit, stand or walk. The pain was barely bearable. All I could do was lie on the floor and the pain was so bad I was unable to see a therapist. Jean-Paul Barbou van Roosteren of De Witte Os came to treat me. After an hour of treatment with massage and acupuncture, this crippled man was able to go for a walk again. Maybe not as fast as Jesus did, but just as wonderful! Thank you very much!!! -Fons
