    The Power of Acupuncture Points

    Acupuncture's effectiveness lies in its ability to target specific points in the body.

    For example:

    • Large Intestine 4 (LI 4), known as Hegu or "Joining Valley," is a crucial point for alleviating headaches and supporting large intestine functions
    • Large Intestine 11 (Qu Chi- "Pool at the Bend") is used to clear inflammation
    • STomach 36 (Zu San Li- "Leg Three Mile") boosts metabolism and aids digestion
    • Lung 7 (Lie Que- "Broken Sequence") is vital for immune support
    • Spleen 6 (Sanyinjiao- "3 Yin Intercrossing") harmonises blood and lymphatic flow.

    Acupuncture for Everyday Health

    Incorporating Acupuncture into your daily and weekly life can lead to significant improvements in your wellbeing.

    Regular stimulation of these points through Acupuncture or Acupressure, can support the enhancement of your energy levels, reduction of your pain, and improvement of your immune function. Acupuncture is also beneficial to support the reduction of musculoskeletal pain.

    The practice of Acupuncture is not just about supporting the reduction of pain. It's also about helping you to maintain your overall health and supporting the prevention of issues in the future.

    The Role of Acupressure and Aromatherapy

    Between Acupuncture sessions, Acupressure combined with Aromatherapy can be a powerful self-care tool. Ask your skilled Actupuncturist at Brisbane Livewell Clinic for guidance on how to carry this out.

    Using essential oils or herbal balms, you can massage your Acupuncture points to continue reaping the benefits - also known as "Acupressure". This approach helps you to connect deeper with your body and encourages you to take charge of your health long-term.
