Acupuncture Theory and Effects

Acupuncture is an ancient healing technique that has been practiced for over 2,000 years. It involves the insertion of very fine hair-thin, sterilized, disposable needles into acupuncture points on the body. In Chinese Medicine, the human body contains meridians or pathways that carry Qi; Qi is the vital life energy that flows through our bodies. When our Qi is balanced and flowing smoothly, we are in good health. It is when our Qi gets stuck, or we become deficient in Qi that we may start to see specific health issues manifest such as pain and or physical and emotional disharmonies. When this imbalance occurs, the acupuncture needles then activate particular acupuncture points based on an individual’s unique needs to bring the Qi back to health and harmony, allowing the body to heal itself. Acupuncture is also used as excellent preventative medicine. If you feel great already, acupuncture can be used to keep your body healthy and strong. It is necessary to adjust the energy or the structure and physiological function, to design the treatment plan, to select acupuncture points and needles that are consistent with the selection. We use acupuncture manipulation techniques to reduce or eliminate pain and achieve the best results.

Is acupuncture safe? 

We only use single-use sterilized disposable needles, so there is virtually no chance of contamination. Acupuncture is a safe procedure when treatments are administered by a licensed professional who is accredited and registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA)/Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA).

Does acupuncture hurt? 

Because the needles are not much thicker than a hair, treatments are usually painless. After the needle is inserted, you may notice a sensation of tingling, heaviness, or the movement of energy along the channel pathway. Our patients often report feeling relaxed after treatments.
