 Your Health And Acupuncture

    ACUPUNCTURE IS PART OF TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE, WHICH ORIGINATED IN CHINA OVER 5,000 YEARS AGO.  This science and art of healing has become widely accepted over the past two decades.  It is now established as a profession in Australia and has proven to be safe and effective.

    Acupuncture is a form of natural healing which has the following major benefits:

  • Drugless pain relief
  • Assists prevention against disease
  • Treats the cause as well as the symptoms
  • Holistic approach to illness, linking body, mind and emotions
  • Effectively treats many common ailments


 There are three main ways where acupuncture therapy can help.

1.      Treating specific disorders to provide relief of symptoms and reduce complications.  Acupuncture is also used to treat the cause of the disorder and reduce the likelihood of its reoccurrence.

2.      Maintenance treatment of a long term problem:  This is to provide a more comfortable state of health and reduce the need for medication ad surgery.

3.      Chinese medicine is an effective form of preventative medicine because of its ability to detect and treat energy imbalances before they lead to disease.

 The earlier a disorder is detected the better, so regular check-ups are recommended.
