Wellness through balance

Our Brisbane acupuncture practitioners understand that your health is maximised through balance.

Chinese medicine holds that being healthy is a state of optimal balance, where all of your systems are working as they should.

Symptoms, such as pain or insomnia, are alerts to an imbalance that needs to be addressed in you.

Does acupuncture hurt? And other questions …

Usually, people find acupuncture relaxing. Believe it or not, but many fall asleep while having a treatment!
Acupuncture is generally considered to be safe but occasionally (as with all health treatments), may be associated with possible adverse reactions in individual cases.

The Commonwealth Government now registers acupuncturists. Ask to see a practitioner’s qualifications and professional membership. Check that they use disposable needles.

There is a growing amount of scientific evidence showing it can help people with a range of conditions. Acupuncture is a gentle healing therapy. Each treatment builds on the former to bring about lasting change in the way Qi flows through the body, which is the key to restoring health. This is why a course of treatments is usually needed. The length of the course depends on the duration and serverity of your condition, and your constitution.
A major reason why people choose acupuncture is that it will not interfere with medications they might already be taking. Another key reason is that acupuncture can produce excellent results.

While most of us don’t cherish the thought of needles, know that acupuncture needles are very fine, so they glide into the body effortlessly. Once they’re in, you usually can’t feel them.

Here’s what’s important. It’s how we may help you.
