About Acupuncture

Similarly to Chiropractic, the ancient method of acupuncture is all about stimulating and enhancing the body’s self-healing power. 

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.

How can it help?

The Acupuncture Evidence Project was published in 2017. It is a review of the evidence supporting the efficacy of acupuncture currently available.

Of the 122 conditions reviewed, evidence of effect was found at various levels for 117 conditions. The findings of the review include:

  • Conditions with strong evidence supporting the effectiveness of acupuncture included allergic rhinitis (perennial & seasonal), knee osteoarthritis, chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (with anti-emetics), migraine prophylaxis, chronic low back pain, postoperative nausea & vomiting, headache (tension-type and chronic) and postoperative pain.
  • Conditions with moderate evidence supporting the effectiveness of acupuncture included acute low back pain, acute stroke, neck pain, obesity, anxiety, peri-menopausal and postmenopausal insomnia, asthma in adults, post-traumatic stress disorder, constipation, hypertension (with medication), irritable bowel syndrome and menopausal hot flushes.

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.
