Acupuncture is an age-proven, efficient and natural form of healing and treatment of illness and disease. It is one of the most popular techniques of Chinese Medicine, used by many different and diverse people.
Acupuncture involves the stimulation of certain acupoints on the body with very fine, sterile, disposable needles. This practice of Chinese Medicine takes a holistic approach to balancing the flow of qi (circulation) throughout your body.
The flow of qi needs to be maintained in harmony and balance. Pain and disease occur - when your qi and blood flow are blocked, stagnant or depleted in one part the body. By targeting certain acupoints, acupuncture frees up blocked qi and blood, enabling them to circulate freely within the body and restore balance to your body.
HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE AFFECT THE BODY?
Acupuncture points are believed to stimulate the central nervous system. This, in turn, releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These biochemical changes may stimulate the body's natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being.
DRY NEEDLING VS ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture and dry needling are not the same. The experience of these therapies is often very different for patients, an acupuncturist is trained to administer acupuncture for a range of health conditions and to needle into acupuncture points which has effects on both the muscles and the meridian channels. When using acupuncture points for needling there is likely to be only a minimal pain response.
Dry needling is only used for musculoskeletal conditions and only trigger points (not acupuncture points) are needled. Trigger points are areas of muscular pain or tension. needling into trigger points illicit a painful response, needling into these structures will most often cause a twitch in the muscle and the sensation may be uncomfortable.
Each treatment lasts approximately 30 to 45 minutes.
Chinese herbal medicine is another age-old proven medicine treatment which has been used for over 2500 years. Chinese herbal medicine is a natural and refined way of using herbal products to promote health and overcome disease. Traditionally, Chinese herbal medicine uses a variety of different ingredients to brew a strong tea.
A typical herbal formula may be comprised of somewhere between 5 to 20 Chinese herbs, skillfully combined to create a well balanced, targeted formula to suit the patient.
Concentrated Herbal Granules are used in our clinic. Its manufactured in a carefully controlled process that begins by cooking raw herbs in water until a concentrated liquid is obtained. A special extraction method captures and preserves the volatile oils, which are later added back to the herb product.
State of the art testing is performed on the herbal granules during manufacturing stage and only those passing high standards for safety and efficacy are used. Laboratory tests check for potential microbes such as E. coli, salmonella and other contaminants.
Gas Chromatography (GC) testing is used to detect potentially harmful pesticides and herbicides, Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) assesses the concentration of heavy metals, and High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) measures the potency of active ingredients.
I use Herbal Granules which has been manufactured according to GMP ( Good Manufacturing Practice) and also Australia TGA approved.
Cold laser therapy is low-intensity laser therapy, or laser therapy that uses low levels of light to stimulate healing. Unlike surgical or aesthetic lasers, it does not cause your tissues to heat up and therefore provides a safe, painless and efficient form of therapy for patients.
Cold laser therapy is sometimes called low-level laser therapy (LLLT), low-power laser therapy (LPLT), or soft laser. In Cold Laser therapy, a low-level light is applied directly to a problem area, usually an area afflicted by pain or inflammation. Tissues absorb the light, which leads damaged cells to have a physiological reaction to the red and infrared light. This reaction happens on biological and chemical level which promotes the regeneration of damaged cells.
Cold laser therapy is used as a safe, efficient and painless treatment for tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation. The main uses for cold laser therapy are tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation.physical complaints.
Cupping and Moxa is also use within my practice.
