Similarly to Chiropractic, the ancient method of acupuncture is all about stimulating and enhancing the body’s self-healing power. By balancing the human body’s distinct yet interdependent functions, practitioners aim to eliminate disease and promote best possible health.
We often employ musculo skeletal acupuncture in combination with chiropractic techniques. According to traditional Chinese theory, the acupuncture needles influence the flow of energy in the body’s meridians.
We use acupuncture because it can have effects on blood circulation, muscle tone, inflammation, repair and pain. Therefore it adds to the effectiveness of our treatment.

Does it work?
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine is fast becoming recognised internationally as a modality that is growing in scientific evidence-base and can effectively complement conventional medicine treatments. To reflect this trend, in 2013 Traditional Chinese Medicine (inc Acupuncture) was incorporated into AHPRA, the body that regulates and standardises mainstream health practitioners.
