Acupuncture is used for the treatment of a range of illnesses and dysfunction both acute (recent onset) and chronic in nature. Treatment application ranges from muscuoloskeletal conditions through to systemic conditions and may include dysfunction affecting the organs, muscles, circulation and their related function. Acupuncture has also long been used for health maintenance, addressing non-specific signs and symptoms such as tiredness, feelings of being run down and poor quality sleep.
As such, acupuncture treatment is not just for those with illness or injury but is useful to assist with maintaining optimal health, important in today’s high impact society where optimal functioning is required for individuals and their busy life schedules.
In this way, acupuncture can assist in the prevention of illness through identifying and addressing imbalances before they manifest physically. Contact the clinic for further information.
Acupuncture therapy often involves the use of thin, solid needles inserted at discrete points and regions on the body. This is done to bring about a beneficial therapeutic outcome to assist in the alleviation, control and/or management of pain and dysfunction. While acupuncture is associated with 'needles', acupuncture as a treatment option involves more than just the use of needles.
