When most people think of Acupuncture, they think of pain relief. And … there is no doubt that Acupuncture excels in this department. However, there are 3 other great reasons for choosing Acupuncture as your primary modality.
Acupuncture has a positive effect on your state of wellbeing. It is your ideal partner in this stressful world. Used alongside a good diet, regular exercise and mindfulness, it will bring out the best in you; irrespective of your presenting health issue. It is also side-effect free, so you can never overdose.
Acupuncture is an extraordinarily safe therapy - but only in the hands of a well trained professional. Side effects are rare. Outcomes are nearly always positive and often quite rapid. Please ensure you choose a traditionally trained and registered Acupuncturist (AHPRA registered Acupuncturist).
Acupuncture is the ideal Preventative Therapy. In ancient China Acupuncturists treated people when they were well; to prevent the onset of illness. This tradition is alive and well in my Practice. If this approach is of interest to you please ask me for more details. I am more than happy to answer your questions.
A comprehensive study undertaken by the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA) found evidence for the effectiveness of Acupuncture for 117 conditions. It also found that Acupuncture is considered safe and effective in the hands of a well trained practitioner and that it is also a cost effective treatment.
