WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT

Your acupuncturist will thoroughly assess your condition and make a diagnosis according to TCM principles. Your medical history, family medical history, diet, lifestyle and any medications or supplements you are taking will also be discussed. They will examine your tongue, take a series of pulses, and may palpate tender points along meridians.

You will then lie down and very fine acupuncture needles will be inserted at specific points. You may feel a mild dull sensation or a bit of a tingle. Most people find the experience very relaxing. Moxibustion (heat produced by a particular herb), cupping and/or massage may also be used.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO TREAT A CONDITION?

The amount of treatment you need will depend on your condition and how long you’ve had it. Your acupuncturist will estimate the number of treatments you will need once they have observed how your body responds to a few treatments. Generally, acute conditions are resolved faster than chronic conditions. In some cases, Chinese herbal medicine is combined with acupuncture for better or faster results.

WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?

It is one of the major components of the wholistic philosophy of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM determines where and how your body is out of balance, and causing illness or pain. Acupuncture is then used to restore the proper flow of energy (qi), blood, and yin and yang, in order to bring the body back to health, strengthen and normalise proper function, and prevent illness.

HOW IT WORKS

Energy (qi) flows through the body along meridian pathways associated with the body’s organs and systems. Very fine sterile acupuncture needles are inserted into points along these meridians to adjust, unblock and balance the flow of qi, which helps the body to heal, and prevents illness.

MOST COMMONLY TREATED CONDITIONS

Acupuncture treats a wide range of chronic and acute conditions. These include:

  • Gastrointestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, diarrhoea, bloating, ulcers, indigestion and acid reflux
  • Gynaecological problems such as premenstrual syndrome, painful, irregular or heavy periods, and menopausal symptoms
  • Male and female fertility problems
  • Musculoskeletal conditions such as neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, sports injuries, arthritis and fibromyalgia.


Acupuncture is also commonly used to treat headaches, migraines, high blood pressure, sinusitis, fatigue, skin problems, cold and flu, insomnia, stress and anxiety.

Acupuncture is a safe, gentle and effective form of treatment that has been used by millions of people for over 5000 years.
