Acupuncture

The traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) ideal considers unified organ function and smooth “qi” or “chi” flow throughout the body the key to health.

Acupuncture treatment at our West End clinic, in Brisbane, is based around your specific needs and is a preventative measure. Treatment focuses on the stimulation of acupuncture points and meridians on specific areas of the body using sterilised pre-packaged needles, electric currents, moxibustion, cupping and Chinese remedial massage.

This treatment is widely acknowledged in the management of pain and musculoskeletal disorders by utilising a holistic approach to illness. This is best achieved by encouraging the body’s natural defences and self-healing to treat the root of the disease.
