The origins of acupuncture is believed to go back over 2,000 years, making it one of the oldest health care systems in the world. It is becoming an increasingly popular health care modality in Australia achieving good results across a wide number of conditions.

Acupuncturists treat by inserting fine, sterile, disposable needles into specific acupuncture points along meridian pathways (the body’s natural energy paths) to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of Qi (natural flow of energy) through the body.

The practitioner then leaves the needle in place for a specific length of time often choosing to stimulate the various points of insertion using other methods they are trained in (e.g. electro-stimulation, acupressure) prior to removing and disposing of the single use needle.
