Looking for Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture or remedial massage in Mernda or Doreen?
Acupuncture is a holistic therapy that is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is based on the principle of energy points throughout the body which are stimulated by ultrafine sterilized stainless steel needles to promote a healing response.
Through the gentle manipulation of the acupuncture points we aim to stimulate blood flow, improve the movement and levels of energy and stimulate organ function through direct interaction with its associated energy channel. Acupuncture may promote homeostasis (dynamic balance) and work by stimulating the body’s innate healing capabilities (endogenous resources).
Acupuncture scientific evidence indicates it may be effective in treating many conditions including but not limited to:
- Chronic low back pain
- Allergic Rhinitis
- Knee osteoarthritis
Acupuncturists are AHPRA registered health practitioners.
