I am Aleksandra. I am an acupuncturist in Amsterdam OostI grew up in Slovenia. Acupuncturist is the profession I chose after moving to the Netherlands. Previously, I was a passionate librarian and a language teacher. My priorities are health, constant learning and good books. Being a healthy lifestyle and diet enthusiast myself, I love inspiring and sharing knowledge with people to understand the importance of health for better quality of life. I am especially interested in prevention of disease and maintaining health, which is the core of TCM. I believe listening to our body and emotions is essential to our health and happiness, and only we are responsible for our own wellbeing. I want to share this awareness with you and support you on your healing journey.

About me

I believe everything in life is related. One step leads to another, and during this process we grow and develop into our mission-role in this world. It seems clear to me now that my path towards becoming an acupuncturist started years ago.

When I moved to Amsterdam at age 37, I found a job at a corporate company. In the beginning it was very exciting and I appreciated the new experience and new people that I met there. But it didn't last long. I started to feel that this kind of work was not for me. Going to the office made me feel anxious and I was frustruated because I felt I was no longer doing things that I really wanted to do - which was helping people. One day I was sitting at my computer, exhausted and unable to find meaning in the job I was doing when I got a strong feeling that I should quit this job and follow my dreams. In that moment, I had a clear vision of what I really wanted to do.


When I was living in Slovenia, I became close friends with Marianne, an older American woman who was an acupuncturist. She introduced to me this amazing practice, gave me treatments, talked to me about Daoist philosophy, and I practiced qi gong with her. She was my teacher, my role model, my inspiration. Prior moving to Amsterdam, she encouraged me to study acupuncture. At that point, I was unable to imagine how that could become a reality although I loved the idea. So the idea lingered at the back of my mind for years.


That day in the office, an image of myself as an acupuncturist suddenly became clear and I knew it was the right time to make the first step on the path I was being invited to. Following my guidance, in 2020 I completed 4-years of studies at Shenzhou Open University of TCM in Amsterdam, which included Foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Foundations of Western Medicine and apprenticeship with TCM practitioners.  

Now, I am happy to share my expertise, knowledge and wisdom of TCM wider at Aleksandra Acupuncture & Holistic Care at my practice in Amsterdam Oost. I look forward to start supporting you on your own journey to health and wellness.
