Records of the use of acupuncture, go back to around 150 B.C.E. It was likely to have been in use long before that. That is, many centuries before the now culturally dominant medicine in Australia started. It is appropriate for people of all ages.

According to Chinese medical theory, our health is dependant on the balanced flow of qi, or life force. The smooth flow of qi can be impeded by a number of factors, such as major weather changes, emotional and psychological stress, poor diet and exercise habits, insufficient rest, hereditary dispositions, infection or trauma. Symptoms, diseases, moods don’t arise from nothing. They arise from causes and conditions. As well as seeking to alleviate symptoms, we also explore the likely conditions that are contributing to the suffering. Changing the conditions from which something arose, may decrease the likelihood of recurrence.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine, single use, sterile disposable needles into acupuncture points to regulate the flow of qi. There are many other ways of working with acupuncture points and qi in the body. Other techniques we frequently use, include; moxibustion, tui na, plum blossom hammer, cupping and gua sha.
