Acupuncture

   

 

 

This includes the traditional use of very fine needles and also modern non-invasive Laser therapy where we use a laser for acupuncture.

 

Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of natural medicine practiced. It originated in China approx. 3,000 years ago.

 

To answer the question " what is Acupuncture ", the best description is to see it as one of the best and most comprehensive alternative ,natural therapies offering natural remedies for many wide and varied conditions from Asthma to acne and arthritis to pain relief for many painful conditions such as back problems & sore necks.

 

It is in some ways a very subtle form of natural treatment but is also very powerful in it’s beneficial effects on many health conditions.

 

Acupuncture practice is based on the principle of specific meridians or channels of energy known as Qi or Chi which transverse the body and pass through the organs.

 

Every known acupuncture point on the body can be scientifically verified as the specific location of all of these points has a different electrical resistance to the surrounding tissue and this can be  measured with electrical equipment.

 

Ill-health and disease is seen as an imbalance,either excess or deficiency of this Qi energy.This imbalance can be rectified by the stimulation of Acupuncture points on the meridians either by needles or laser for acupuncture.  

 

Basically Acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural innate healing abilities and that is why it is so effective for so many varying conditions.One could almost liken it to “tuning up" your body as you would your car.

 

Pain relief is possibly the condition mostly associated with Acupuncture as this is one area where it shows it’s effectiveness to best effect such as bad backs,necks, arthritis, headaches etc but is also able to treat most health issues including digestive,hormonal disorders,anxiety and depression,hayfever,skin disorders etc.

 

It can be used as an alternative natural therapy and remedy on it's own and also in conjunction with your medical treatment.The two can be used as complimentary to each other both offering treatment for your condition.At no stage is there any interference with whatever treatment you are on from your doctor.

 

Most people react quite well to Acupuncture but everyone is different as are the conditions they suffer from.Response and relief can be immediate but generally it takes 1-2 days for it to show a noticeable change as the body responds and starts the healing process.

 

Acupuncture is a very safe form of alternative natural treatment.All acupuncture points are located in specific locations in muscle tissue and the needle insertion is generally quite shallow.These acupuncture points have been known and utilized for over 3,000 years.

 

It is regulated by a Government Body APHRA  to ensure practitioners are suitably qualified.

We are all members of a professional organization the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association.

 

All needles are sterilized and disposable.

Magnesium Spray Remedy

 

Magnesium is the great " Relaxing Mineral " remedy for the muscles. Taken internally in tablet form it is an  effective but slow pain relieving remedy so I utilize a water based spray which is easily and more quickly absorbed through the skin straight into the injured area providing  more pain relief.
