Acupuncture

Here at Central Sydney Osteopathy, we've been providing quality acupuncture services to Sydney's Inner West for more than three decades.

Acupuncture is an 3000+ year old eastern form of diagnosis and treatment. It is an exceedingly complex system that requires extensive training and practice. It is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which again requires extensive training and practice. TCM uses acupuncture, Chinese herbs, emollients, moxibustion, exercise like Tai chi, and specific dietary advice. Patients seek this kind of care for constitutional ailments, as well as simple musculoskeletal complaints. 

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 acupuncture consultation includes a careful and detailed history and assessment, and your treatment will access a specific set of points along these meridians, stimulated to promote a clear flow of energy. This leads to better health and 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 also be used as a form of preventative medicine, because energy imbalances can be treated before disease manifests.

And of course, acupuncture can assist with back and neck pain, women's health, tension headaches and migraines, and much more. 

Practitioners of TCM and of acupuncture must complete a university level course of study and be registered with AHPRA to legally practice.
