How does Acupuncture Work?
1. Spend Time To Find a Clear Diagnosis
In your initial consultation, our experienced Acupuncturist will spend time diagnosing your condition, using a wide range of diagnostic tools. The acupuncturist may assess the tongue, skin, pulse and eyes as these areas are seen as major indicators of overall health and well-being.
2. Find Relief With Acupuncture
Your acupuncture Brisbane treatment may involve the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific sites (acupuncture points) along the body’s meridians to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of qi through the individual. The practitioner may also stimulate the acupuncture points using other methods, including moxibustion, cupping, laser therapy, electro-stimulation and massage, in order to re-establish the flow of qi.
3. Medicine Specifically Prepared For Your Condition
Herbs play a prominent role in healing. Herbs can be dispensed as an “off the shelf” formula or our practitioners can create a formula specifically designed for you. Our clinic has over 100 herbs to suit your specific needs.
4. Walk Away with A Plan
Our practitioner can offer you a plan for your on-going recovery and other customised programs to support your health, diet and lifestyle.
IVF Treatment & Acupuncture
**Many health practitioners may recommend acupuncture as an adjunct treatment that may assist with IVF treatment. There is continuing research about how acupuncture can assist with the effectiveness of IVF treatment and you should consult your treating practitioner/s about how acupuncture may be able to help you.
