Acupuncture is an ancient system of medicine that has an unbroken history tracing back over 5000 years, making it the oldest continued practice of medicine in the world. Although ancient in knowledge, it is constantly researched and supported by Western Medicine medical analysis with Universities such as R.M.I.T. at the forefront of Acupuncture and Herbal Medical research.
All professionally trained Chinese medicine doctors are trained in both Western Medicine and Traditional Chinese medicine to give a unique balance of ancient wisdom and modern scientific application.
Acupuncture is the gentle insertion of very fine needles (nothing like an injection0 into specific points on the body called acu-points that conduct Qi (loosely translated as energy). Thereby facilitation flow of Qi and blood to areas that have become blocked due to trauma and/or emotional constraints.
It works much like a metal plug in a power socket and the acupuncturist turns on the switch to get the body to heal. It can be an incredibly relaxing experience. Acupuncture is readily accepted by the medical profession being used in hospitals such as the Norther Hospital in Melbourne.
Traditional Chinese herbal medicine offers a unique perspective on medical herbal application as they are individually prescribed on an individual basis for your specific needs.
A typical prescription consists of 8 to 12 herbs that work synergistically to assist improved organ function such as improving digestion, kidney function or as your needs require.
It is a dynamic system of application of theory based on your specific pattern and then can be adapted as you improve. Herbs can be used to clear toxins, boost energy, clear pathogens both bacterial and viral as well as lift your mood and help you sleep.
All herbal medicines used in Australia are approved by the Therapeutic Goods and Administration Dept and no endangered species or products form unethical sources are imported into Australia or used by Australian practitioners.
