The acupuncture clinic in Newtown offers individual, tailored treatments to reduce symptoms associated with many health disorders.

According to Chinese medicine theory, the body’s Qi (or energy) flows through the body along specific pathways (meridians) and connects the body’s tissues with internal organs. Imbalances in this energy such as blockage or weakness can cause pain, disease, or a range of different symptoms. Your Newtown acupuncture consultation includes a careful and detailed assessment so that your treatment will consist of a specific set of points along these meridians, stimulated to promote a clear flow of energy which leads to better health. An acupuncture point may be selected to treat a problem at its local area, or because of its specific effect on the internal organ that’s connected to the meridian. Your treatment may also include some cupping, moxibustion (a herb that produces a warming sensation), electroacupuncture or massage depending on the nature of your condition and our experience of what works best.

This acupuncture clinic in Sydney will also aim to treat underlying energy imbalances so recurrence is less likely.

Acupuncture also offers maintenance treatment for chronic disorders to promote a more comfortable way of living. It can be used as a form of preventative medicine because energy imbalances can be treated before disease manifests.

Will it Hurt?
Acupuncture treatment should produce a very mild sensation in the form of a dull ache, a heavy sensation or a sensation of movement. This is a sign the needle is in place and doing its work.
The feeling is often described as being relieving, relaxing and even enjoyable, not unlike a deep massage. Very commonly patients are so relaxed they fall asleep.
The needles we use are extremely fine, more like a filament, much more fine than an injection needle, and so most of the time there is barely any feeling at all. They are nothing like the feeling of an injection. It's rare for patients to feel pain with high quality acupuncture needles.
